BMW iX3 Concept revealed as all-electric SUV

BMW plans to introduce 12 fully-electric cars by 2025

As its name suggests, the BMW iX3 Concept is an EV version of the BMW X3 SUV - a vehicle that has never been offered as a plug-in hybrid, let alone in fully electric form.

And the BMW ActiveHybrid X6 presented in 2009 was the world's first Sports Activity Coupe with a full-hybrid drive system.

The iX3 will be the brand's first battery-electric SUV, joining the ranks of the Jaguar I-Pace and Tesla Model X.

"The BMW Concept iX3 underscores the BMW Group's resolve to further strengthen its leading position in the field of electric mobility, " BMW said. Now only the X1 plug-in hybrid is built in China.

BMW isn't the only carmarker to jump on the electric bandwagon. Automakers are also compelled to export from China thanks to the country's Made in China 2025 incentive initiative.
