BMW has launched its first all-electric SUV with the new 2021 iX3 model – based on the regular petrol powered X3 and sharing the same bodywork, the new car gives a fantastic competitor in the field comprising rivals such as the new Mercedes EQC, Jaguar I Pace, and Audi E Tron. Despite the 4 wheel drive appearance, the iX3 is unlike rivals in that it’s actually rear wheel drive only, using a 282 bhp electric motor mounted at the rear, with an 80kWh battery giving a certified range of 285 miles on the new WLTP certification, though expect this to drop depending on the temperature and how heavy you are with your right foot!
The iX3 is the first BMW model to be produced in China, as that’s where most electric car batteries are made, and can be distinguished from the regular 3rd generation petrol X3 model by the redesigned blanked off front grille, the redesigned bumpers and special aerodynamic 19” alloy wheels, with production starting in 2021. 0-60 times are around 6.8 seconds, similar to the 30i petrol model though because of the instant torque available from standstill it feels a lot quicker, and with a centre of gravity lowered by 75mm over the petrol version it feels crisp to drive.

The iX3 2021 version, (like every premium electric 4x4 at the moment) is proving very popular with drivers and that combined with quite small allocations of cars given to UK dealers and really cheap monthly leasing costs has led to increasing delivery times, so best to order sooner rather than later!
