The future is electric and with the BMW Concept iX3 BMW is presenting a design study of the first all-electric Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) at the Auto China 2018. With its fifth-generation BMW eDrive technology and a powerful battery with over 70 kWh the future series vehicle offers a range of over 400 km at a charging time of up to under 30 minutes. Electric driving at a new level – without compromises in functionality and comfort.

Visionary solutions and future-ready concepts become reality: The BMW i Vision Dynamics portrays the image of electric mobility in a dynamic, practical model. With a possible range of 600 km (373 miles), over 200 km/h (120 mph) top speed and an acceleration of 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.0 seconds the BMW i Visions Dynamics takes the e-mobility experience to a new level. A progressive, four-door Gran Coupé positioned between the i3 and i8. The tension between large surfaces and finely worked details points to the innovative technology at the heart of the car in an understated way.

Connected with the future.

    The values of fuel consumptions, CO2 emissions and energy consumptions shown were determined according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version applicable at the time of type approval. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers optional equipment and the different size of wheels and tires available on the selected model.

    The values of the vehicles labeled with (²), are preliminary.

    The values of the vehicles labeled with (³), are already based on the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to ensure the comparison between the vehicles. [With respect to these vehicles, for vehicle related taxes or other duties based (at least inter alia) on CO2-emissions the CO2 values may differ to the values stated here.]

    The CO2 efficiency specifications are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the European Regulation in its current version applicable. The values shown are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle for the classification.

    For further information about the official fuel consumption and the specific CO2 emission of new passenger cars can be taken out of the „handbook of fuel consumption, the CO2 emission and power consumption of new passenger cars“, which is available at all selling points and at
