  • BMW shares teaser video for its new iX3 SUV

The new fifth-generation electric drivetrain draws its power from a high-voltage battery pack that is said to deliver a range of up to 249 miles on the WLTP cycle.

BMW has revealed the iX3 concept, which combines SUV styling and functionality with an all-electric powertrain as the brand looks to expand its electric vehicle offering. This technology groups the electric motor, transmission, and power electronics into a new separate electric dive component. Another notable element is that the electric motor does not need any rare earths, which means the BMW Group is not dependent on their availability. The new BMW i3X previous the next EV from the brand. The BMW company is looking to automated, connected, electrified and services technologies in order to revolutionize its image. Its electric motor delivers 200 kW/270 hp while its voltage battery has a net capacity of over 70 kWh, enough to give the vehicle a range of more than 400km. Like the one used by the Audi e-tron, the i3X's battery is said to have been designed with 150kW fast-charging stations in mind, making a full charge possible in just 30 minutes thanks to clever battery cooling and temperature control technology.

He sounded a solitary tongue-in-cheek note of caution, with two home games still to play against Huddersfield Town and Brighton. The only mar on the day for City was that their fans invaded the pitch at the end in celebration, with a flare being let off.

According to BMW, the energy storage system has a newly developed Charging Control Unit, and is created to be hooked up to fast-charging stations generating up to 150 kW.

In the front, the kidney and the brand emblem show the affiliation with the BMW i brand. The trademark blue accents of BMW's "i" range are prominently featured.

He is therefore keen to make the most of this opportunity, and others he hopes will come their way under Klopp's guidance. If we do that then hopefully we can get through to the final.

Apart from the reshaped kidney grille and blue highlights, the iX3 gets less ventilation from the front for a smoother nose, the sills and rear diffuser get a tweak (a blue tweak at that) and there's a set of slippery lightweight wheels, so if this iX3 Concept is anything to go by then BMW's future electric models are going to be remarkably similar to their ICE counterparts. The concept is also fitted with light-alloy wheels in an aerodynamically optimised design. BMW is still not mentioning when their first all-electric crossover will reach the public.
