BMW unveils the iX3 electric car

BMW introduced iX3, the company's first fully electric car that can travel 200 miles, and the brand's first electric car since the launch of the i3 in 2014.

(IX3) must be manufactured in China, then sold in China and Europe, and not shipped to the United States. Delivery will start at the end of this year and it will be sold for 68,000 euros (about 77500 USD). .

The iX3 is a BMW X3 in many ways, but it has an electric motor, making it the first natural-looking electric car from a German car manufacturer.

While this can help standardize technology, it also means that BMW is pressing the battery-powered driving system, which is linked to the design of the car that was originally powered by the combustion engine. the Apprentice.

This means that the area of ​​the batteries, electric motors and other technologies is less than the electrical appliances.

But (BMW) found a room to add an 80-watt battery to (iX3). According to European standards (WLTP), each charge can provide a range of 285 miles.

Although a single electric motor drives the SUV forward, it saves up to 210 kilowatts (286 hp) and can convert the car from 0 to 100 km / h in 6.8 seconds.

The iX3 battery can be charged at a rate of 150 kilowatts, which means that it can charge from 0% to 80% in 34 minutes, and the car can run 100 km after charging for about 10 minutes.

Compared to the Mercedes EQC, it is clear that BMW has done more to integrate electrical engineering into vehicles originally designed to use gasoline.

BMW blinded the world a few years ago with the Super Hybrid i8 and surprisingly flexible electric vehicle (i3), but apart from the new i3 compact electric car, it took many years to ignore the car electrically.

Like many other companies, the German company is now trying to catch up with a market dominated by Tesla.
