Coming to market in 2021, BMW has been testing its latest electric development cars near the Arctic Circle The company’s next EV will be the iX3, that will feature the fifth- generation BMW eDrive system for the first time. Though details are limited at present, range is said to be 250 miles and the car will be able to accept 150kW charge rates. Meanwhile, the BMW i4 will offer 372 miles to a charge, does the 0-62mph sprint in just 4 seconds and will be available not only in full-electric form, but also with as-yet undetailed combustion engine options too. As for the iNEXT, BMW states a similar specification to that of the i4, but with added functions including Level 3 autonomous capability.
The cars will be produced around the world, notably the iX3 in China by the BMW Brilliance Automotive Joint Venture at the Chinese production location in Shenyang.
