German luxury vehicles manufacturer – BMW is set to launch its line-up of electric vehicles this year. Recently, images of its latest electric model, ready to hit the market - iX3 SUV were leaked on the internet. The iX3 features the same design as of the X3 SUV with some slight modifications.
The kidney grille – a centrepiece that can be seen on all BMWs over the past 85 years, has been replaced with a grille with horizontal shaped inserts. It is a usual case for all electric vehicles given that there is no need of a ventilation system to air the engine.
The front grille is surrounded by blue detailing which can also be seen on the side skirts and on the rear covering up the usual exhaust vents. The front bumper comes with intakes on both ends which appear to be vents for cooling the brake.
The wheels have been designed keeping the aerodynamics in mind.
The BMW iX3 is expected to be powered by a 70kWh battery and a motor that can produce 274hp. With the above mentioned components, this new electric SUV should be able to run for about 400km on a full-charged battery.
Coming with BMW's fifth-generating electric vehicle hardware, the iX3 can be a very efficient SUV. The company has not announced the launch date yet however, it is likely to be postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
