driven purely by electric power, the new technology configuration of the BMW ‘concept iX3’ offers advances in operating range, weight, packaging space, flexibility and most importantly, performance characteristics. the driving pleasure is ensured with a maximum output of over 270 hp and a range of 249 miles. furthermore, its optimized charging capacity allows the batteries to be charged in 30 minutes from stations that generate up to 150 kW.



the presentation of the BMW ‘concept iX3’ also highlights the design differentiation between the group’s brands, as well its electrification. the brand emblem and closed double kidney, which helps reduce air resistance, exemplifies this. referencing the BMW ‘i vision dynamics’, these elements are accentuated with blue, which continues along the side skirts and on the rear diffuser. finally, it provides a striking contrast against the moonstone silver matt exterior painted body.





  • It is not BMW it is Kia.

  • Not a bad shape. BUT, I’d bet Peter Schreyer is grinning like a cat now that two kidneys look like KIA’s trademark grille. ‘When the copied become the copiers.’
