BMW iX3 is the fully electric version of the popular X3 SUV and not even a year after its launch, the automaker revealed the restyled model. It only remained on the market as a non-facelift for a few months, as it was launched just as BMW was preparing to rejuvenate the current generation X3 anyway.
So what has BMW changed with this iX3 LCI? Well, the front gets bigger kidney grills (which like before are just there for decoration since they’re no longer needed), slightly thinner headlights, a reshaped front apron, and 3D effect taillights. redesigned.
It also comes standard with the M Sport package and new 20-inch aero wheels are available to replace the standard 19-inch wheels. Inside, there’s a revised control panel on the center console, around the transmission selector, and the iX3 gets two 12.3-inch displays as standard. The vehicle has the same blue accents inside and out to help it stand out from the electric model.
The powertrain and battery are left intact. The iX3 has the same 286 horsepower rear-mounted electric motor with maximum torque of 400 Nm (295 lb-ft). The claimed acceleration time to 100 km / h (62 mph) is 6.8 seconds and the top speed is the same at 180 km / h (112 mph).
BMW has also announced German market price information for the updated iX3, which now starts from â¬ 67,300 with VAT included. The manufacturer says you can order your iX3 now and deliveries of the refreshed model will begin this fall – we will surely see this refurbished model and the other new BMW EVs when we attend the Munich motor show in early September.
