The iX3 is the first BMW model to be produced in China for export to key markets. It dispenses with the earlier strategy that called for BMW's electric models to be based on a dedicated aluminium structure. Instead, the new but familiarly styled electric SUV is based on the same CLAR platform as recently facelifted petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid versions of the third-generation X3.

Reviewers from Autoexpress have found the following[***]:
Despite the fact it's based on a petrol platform, the all-electric BMW iX3 does a convincing job of pitching itself as a fantastic family car. It's perhaps a little stiff – likely to compensate for the added weight – but it drives well, charges quickly, comes loaded with kit, and even undercuts the competition on price.

Sentiment Score[*] 65%
Reviewers from Carmagazine have found the following[***]:
The iX3 is the first BMW ever to be imported from China. Max power is an okay 286bhp, max torque is a feisty 295lb ft, and the redline of the sporty e-motor beckons at a lofty 17,000rpm. At 2260kgs, this is the heaviest X3 by some margin, but it also boasts the most tenacious roadholding since the massive battery stack lowers the centre of gravity by a substantial 75mm.

Pros[**]
  • Impressive electric power
  • Impressive acceleration and top speed
  • Fantastic infotainment system
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular
