In the open database of the Chinese Ministry of industry and trade has published the characteristics of electrocreaser BMW iX3. Before the premiere managed to get overall dimensions, curb weight new, wheel size, and options for the design of the exterior. Technical data previously shared in the BMW, but the presentation still was not.
Chinese certification bodies confirmed that BMW iX3 will be little different from the X3 with a conventional internal combustion engine: the electric and “normal” crossover identical wheelbase 2864 mm and the same width is 1891 mm. Due to the different aerodynamic iX3 38 millimetres longer than the X3, and 7 millimetres higher.
Compared to rechargeable hybrid BMW X3 xDrive30e curb weight increased to 140 pounds, and reached 2205 pounds. Another difference – the 19-inch wheels 245/50 R19 already in the base, and 20-inch wheels of the dimension 245/45 R20 as an option. Judging by the pictures from the catalog, iX3 decorate the original more streamlined discs of the two species.
Depending on the configuration iX3 BMW will offer multiple decor options: stub, simulating a radiator grill, bumpers, sills and wheels with blue inserts can vary the edging of the glass, as well as design branded “nostrils”.
The interior is almost completely repeat the traditional X3: probably will only change the steering wheel and the graphics of the instrument panel; the interior can receive the special insert.
Indicative technical specifications the manufacturer has called the Chinese Ministry of industry and trade confirmed the data. BMW iX3 will be equipped with a 286-horsepower (400 Nm) electric motor to drive the rear axle and the traction battery 74 per kilowatt-hour. Estimated cruising range on a single charge – 440 miles on the WLTP cycle.
Electrocreaser iX3 for all markets will be assembled at the joint venture BMW Brilliance in China so China will certainly become the first country to offer new. However, while BMW has never held the official premiere of the model. Probably iX3 finally declassified in a few weeks.
