The new BMW iX3 is the first fully electrically powered BMW X model. The iX3 combines locally emission-free driving pleasure with BMW's legendary sporting ability.

The first-ever BMW iX3's forward-thinking personality stems from a unique combination of its electric motor's efficiency, the optimised energy density of its high-voltage battery and its high charging capacity. This is the result of the brand's many years of unwavering development work in the field of electric mobility.

For the first time, the BMW X3 will be available with a high-efficiency gasoline engine, plug-in hybrid system, or pure-electric drive system. The iX3 embodies the company's strategic "Power of Choice" approach to meeting a wide range of customer requirements and statutory regulations around the world.
