Say hello to the iX3, BMW's 'first' electric car

It represents the next step in BMW's electric-car strategy, which sees BMW complementing today's i3 and i8 with a range of fully electric versions of its core models.

Competitors of the auto will be the Audi E-tron, Mercedes and Jaguar C EQ I-Pace.

As BMW says, this vehicle comes as a vital part of the brand's NUMBER ONE NEXT strategy.

For the Thunder, here's why Game 4 is absolutely a 'must win'
The Timberwolves are battling but they'll need Towns to play more like he did in Game 3 as compared to the first two contests. They should expect Mike D'Antoni to construct a comeback based on serious contributions from James Harden and Chris Paul.

The BMW iX3 electric SUV is the first vehicle to run on pure electric power.

BMW came out fighting with its range of electric vehicles when the "i" sub-brand was launched.

"In the future this flexible architecture will be suitable for all front, rear and all wheel drive propulsion systems". BMW has finally offered details of this new generation of electronic drive systems.

With the world premiere of the BMW Concept iX3, the BMW Group is opening a new chapter in its electrification strategy. BMW plans to begin producing the iX3 in 2020 at its joint-venture plant in Shenyang and will sell the model overseas, according to partner Brilliance China Automotive Holdings. In turn, the hybrids can drive exclusively on electric up to 100 km.

Under the skin is BMW's latest electric motor that churns out over 270bhp, or about the same as the current X3 30d. Using fast charging (think: 150 kilowatts, CCS standard) will deliver an 80 percent charge in 30 minutes. The electric motor, transmission and power electronics are now grouped into a single component, making it much easier to integrate them into different vehicle architectures.

The BMW Brilliance Automotive joint venture will produce the future series-production version of the BMW Concept iX3 in Shenyang, China. The battery size is rated at 70kWh. The closed double kidney with the blue accentuation continues the BMW i Vision Dynamics brand already featured in the BMW i Vision Dynamics.

Banged-up Penguins look to eliminate Flyers
This would be only the third tie all series that the Flyers have not allowed more shots than they put on the opponent's goalie. From what we've seen of the Penguins at the Wells Fargo Center this season, it's a given that they will bring their urgency.

The iX3 adopts an evolution of BMW's design language that moves away from the separate twin-kidney grille that has characterized the brand's cars since the early 1930s. These styling cues provide a striking contrast against the Moonstone Silver matt exterior paint finish. There's also lots of blue highlighting to reinforce the car's electric credentials, while it also gets "aerodynamically optimised" alloy wheels.
