BMW's electrification strategy is getting even more aggressive with the introduction of a new concept, the iX3. The car still resembles the gas-powered model, but a little nip and tuck gives it a more modern look and a new update to the kidney grille that merges the two elements into a singular form to indicate that this isn't any ol' BMW. 

The iX3 will feature their fifth generation BMW eDrive technology that puts the electric motor, transmission and power electronics inside a new and separate electric drive component. Combine that with a more powerful set of batteries and you're able to save space, increase range, and optimize performance. The 270-hp electric motor will allow for 249 miles of range and its new battery technology is able to charge in just 30 minutes.
