BMW teases all-electric iX3 ahead of Auto China 2018
BMW’s all-electric iX3 is no secret. In March, the German automaker announced it would be showing off a concept version of the car at Auto China 2018 in Beijing. As the first all-electric car the company has produced since the 2013’s BMW i3, all eyes are on BMW to show what 2020’s iX3 can bring to market.
To help stoke the flames of desire and intrigue, BMW has now released a teaser trailer on Twitter providing us with a teasing glimpse of what we can look forward to seeing in Beijing this week.

Not much is known about the iX3 but, as you’ve probably guessed, it’s likely to be an all-electric version of BMW’s X3 mini SUV. It’s likely this is also just the start of its electric ambition as the company looks to offer a wide range of EVs as part of its portfolio by 2025. It’s also working with Audi, Daimler, Volkswagen, Ford and others to create a European-wide charging network called Ionity.
It’ll be interesting to see just how BMW’s iX3 turns out as it’s up against some stiff competition on the EV front. This year will see the launch of Jaguar’s ambitious all-electric i-Pace SUV and the rollout of Audi’s e-tron Sportback SUV too. If BMW doesn’t plan to come to market until 2020, it’ll certainly have to offer up something its rivals can’t already do.
