The Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) is the first one from BMW in its new range of cars.

The iX3 is expected to arrive in 2020 and is a direct rival for the Jaguar I-Pace and upcoming Mercedes-Benz EQC and Audi e-tron. This vehicle is part of the BMW NUMBER ONE NEXT strategy. Essentially, the iX3 concept is an electric-powered version of the BMW X3.

Powering the iX3 is a fifth-generation eDrive powertrain, which BMW claims features more powerful and lighter batteries that will extend the range while sapping less juice with extra weight.

"In the future this flexible architecture will be suitable for all front, rear and all wheel drive propulsion systems". Assuming BMW continues to offer X-range models four-wheel drive, there's potential for a dual-motor set-up to be employed, which means 532bhp could be possible.

With the world premiere of the BMW Concept iX3, the BMW Group is opening a new chapter in its electrification strategy. The design of the iX3 is such that it is very compact. In turn, the hybrids can drive exclusively on electric up to 100 km. This allows the electric drivetrain to be more easily fitted in different vehicles.

Trump's tweets 'created a stir' at Barbara Bush's funeral: NYT reporter
But it wasn't the fact that she attended solo that got the internet talking, with the president nowhere to be seen. It was the first time Trump had seen Clinton or Obama since the 2016 election and Inauguration Day in 2017.

All by 2025, the company BMW plans to release 25 serial of electrified models. The battery pack of 70kWh feeds the motors for a total output of 270bhp and an electric range of more than 400km according to WLTP cycle.

The iX3 adopts an evolution of BMW's design language that moves away from the separate twin-kidney grille that has characterized the brand's cars since the early 1930s.

Finished in a striking matt Moonstone Silver, by far the most interesting aspects of the X3-derived design of the concept are the details, such as its conjoined, blue-accented version of the iconic "double-kidney" grille. BMW says that when the EV is charged with a fast-charging station providing 150 kW the battery pack can charge fully in 30 minutes.

The BMW iX3 electric SUV is also equipped with aerodynamically optimised wheels shod with low rolling resistance tyres. But the concept is wearing an all-new kidney grille akin to the one seen on the i Vision Dynamics Concept from past year.
