Stylistically, it's much quieter looking than i-branded models, and is basically an X3 with a slightly tweaked bodykit and a blanked-off "kidney" grille at the front. The new BMW i3X previous the next EV from the brand. This fresh package of technology brings considerable advances in terms of performance characteristics, operating range, weight, packaging space and flexibility - and will be making its debut in the purely electrically-driven SAV.

The iX3 Concept comes with the fourth-generation BMW battery pack, which delivers y0 kWh and is set to offer north of 250 miles per charge. The transfer of the drive system technology originally developed for BMW i cars into vehicles from the BMW Group's core brands is entering a new dimension here.

The body of the auto is generally similar to the internal combustion X3, save for key design tweaks to show off its green credentials.

The concept also has light-alloy wheels with an aerodynamic design and a Moonstone silver paint job that contrasts the bright blue detailing on the skirts.

Aesthetically, the iX3 is immediately recognisable as a BMW X model.

Underneath the body, however, things are very different with the iX3 previewing a new flexible architecture able to accommodate electric, hybrid or combustion engine drivetrains, as well as front, rear or all-wheel drive layouts. 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.

BMW hasn't released photos of the interior.

Its batteries can also be charged at 150 kW fast-charging stations, and is expected to take just 30 minutes to charge at one of these stations - although there are a still limited number of them, as just 200 of these stations are expected to be implemented across Europe by the end of 2018. The trademark blue accents of BMW's "i" range are prominently featured.
