BMW comes with an extensive range of electric models, newcomers of which the majority shares its basis with a regular model. There will also be an electric version of the 3 series and it is that car that has now been caught in a camouflage suit.
BMW will launch the uniquely designed iNext next year. This electric crossover will have its own body and therefore does not seem directly based on a regular production model. The iNext thus seems an exception to the BMW rule. According to the brand, the brand is happy to offer consumers a choice per model, which means, among other things, that various models will not only be available with combustion engines and plug-in hybrid powertrains, but also in fully electric form. The BMW X3 is a good example of this with the iX3. The i4 will be a fully electric version of the yet to be unveiled new BMW 4-series Gran Coupé and BMW is also walking that path with the new i3. It will soon be over and out for the strikingly designed electric hatchback of that name. The new i3 will be ‘just’ an electric 3-series.
The new i3 therefore simply shares its basis with the current 3-series, which means that under the body of this electric sedan is also a version of BMW’s CLAR platform. The new BMW i3 may get the same 286 hp and 400 Nm strong electric motor on the rear axle as the BMW iX3. The iX3 has a 74 kWh battery pack in its bottom. Don’t be surprised if the new i3 gets a package of similar capacity between the front and rear axles. Once on the market, the i3 has to get its teeth into successful electric numbers like the Tesla Model 3. In terms of appearance, the i3 will soon distinguish itself from the regular 3-series with a series of blue accents. Add a closed grille while you think of the exhaust system and voilà: the i3 is born. We expect the new BMW i3 on the market next year.
