Bavarian electric SUV without all -wheel drive – the drive is on the rear axle on the IX3
BMW IX3: The first X3 without all-wheel drive- The drive is on the rear axle for the electrical version
Site author Stefan Grundhoff
The X3 is the first BMW in which Bayern give the customer the free choice, whether petrol, diesel, plug-in hybrid or electrical version. For a full X model, the BMW IX3 is actually missing only one thing: the all-wheel drive.
Visually, the differences to the combustion brothers are manageable. The new BMW IX3 is largely closed at the front because it requires significantly less cooling air. In addition, the partly closed nose gives the connector model a slightly different character. But otherwise everything is the same for the new model from the X3 family-almost. Because while the normal X models from the small brother pair X1 / X2 to the mighty X7 are all on the road with the more than meaningful all-wheel drive at least at a surcharge, this was left out at the BMW IX3. For example, you can quickly feel that this has an impact on driving behavior.

It rains today and with the lavish engine power, the IX3 wedges slightly backwards. Before the control system intervenes, it is in a hurry. No problem, but when winter comes, you want a BMW X3, even if it bears the I in the name and has an electric motor, two driven drive axles for sovereign propulsion in all situations. Finally, there are also competitive models such as the Mercedes EQC or the Audi E-Tron.

North America does not seem to be interested
The reason for the missing front axle drive does not have to be searched for long, because according to the technicians, it would have been easy to incorporate because of the manageable dimensions. However, the BMW IX3 was originally intended exclusively for the Chinese market. When the pressure for an electric SUV was increasing here, the waiting time had to be significantly reduced to the market in the fourth quarter of 2021. So the BMW IX3 is not manufactured in the X3 stem in the American Spartanburg, because for North America the early electric model was hardly demanded. Instead, the BMW IX3 is produced exclusively at the BMW cooperation partner Brilliance in Chinese Shenyang. From here it should also come to Europe from the end of January.

460 kilometers of electrical reach
The 4.73 meter long BMW IX3 is powered by an electric motor on the rear axle with an output of 210 kW / 286 hp and a maximum torque of 400 Nm. As a result, the electrical SUV accelerates at the 100 km/h in 6.8 seconds, but is regulated too early at 180 km/h. Up to 160 km/h, the IX3 is almost noiseless and very brisk; After that it gets tougher. Due to the battery package built between the two axes, it is well on the street and also puts a lot of fun on country roads and highways. But if the BMW IX3 is said to be a serious alternative to the in -house combustion engines that currently have a range of services up to 510 hp and run well over 250 km/h, 180 km/h are very little.Especially against the so popular diesel versions with 190 or 286 hp, the electrical version is difficult not only because of the significant lower reach. If you are easy with a BMW X3 20D XDrive with all-wheel drive and 190 diesel horsepower 220 km/h and have a distance of up to 1 until the next tank stop.100 kilometers in front of it, the Chinese electro-x3 has to go back to the charging station after a maximum of 460 kilometers. The standard consumption is 18.5 kWh per 100 kilometers, which always offers sufficient ranges in view of the 80 kWh battery capacity.

10 minutes charging for 100 kilometers of range?
The loading volume is not significantly impaired by the electric drive and is between 510 and 1.560 liters. Practical: Where available, the BMW IX3 can be refueled with a maximum charging capacity of 150 kilowatts at DC stations. Reloaded from zero to 80 percent, the high -voltage storage capacity can be done in hardly more than half an hour; Accordingly, ten minutes are enough for the next hundred kilometers. At the Wallbox, however, the complete charging of the battery package takes an impressive 7:30 hours. The chassis tuning is somewhat tighter due to the increased empty weight of 2.3 tons than you know it. The steering is direct, but could convey a little more feeling from the road and in the border area the electric X3 pushes noticeably over the front wheels. As with other electrical models, the driver can decide whether he is traveling in normal D driving mode or with maximum recuperation in B mode. Both work exemplary and so it should be a matter of taste for what you can warm in everyday life. The adaptive recuperation works without any problems.

Even if the BMW IX3 fails with a lack of all -wheel drive and at a top speed of 180 km/h, it shines with good standard equipment. For example, the China Bayer offers 19-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, 3-zone automatic climate control with parking heating, automatic tailgate activity, panoramic glass roof, as well as details such as 20 tariffs, acoustic glazing, electrical leather seats or head-up Display. The base price for the BMW IX3 in the basic version Inspring is 66.300 Euro; The complete equipped IX3 Impressive is around 6.000 euros more expensive.

It must be an SUV (for profit optimization) that you should build as efficient vehicles as an electric car manufacturer (in the interest of climate protection) (in the interest of climate protection). Since you have slept for years but would like to deliver, you can use the existing one, with the result that the consumption is still over 10% higher than that of the comparable Tesla SUV (Model Y) and despite giving up one consumption -increasing all -wheel drive. For me this is just an emergency solution. Clear that nobody in North America demands something like this in North America. If you absolutely want a BMW electro SUV, you will buy the car, if you want the efficiency optimum, choose Tesla.
The company could have already learned from others that it makes little sense to incorporate an electric drive into the body of an burner. The only thing that comes out can be found in the 1970s. BMW already has an interesting e-mobile. A design continuation of the i3 could ensure significantly more customers. But apparently BMW has no Disigner who are able and courageous enough to give the electric car a sensible wind-slip dress. They could do without kink-crack effects.
The fact is that you practically do not need all -wheel drive in normal everyday life, just as little as an SUV itself. I am a BMW driver, but I have never had the impression I would have to have the X-Drive. I know how to drive all -wheel drive, had one for three years. I find the system absolutely dispensable. Especially if it has black ice in winter, an all -wheel drive is of little use.
Clearly is an all -wheel drive…
no longer absolutely required these days. However, if there is another manufacturer that offers a vehicle with all-wheel drive, greater efficiency and at a cheaper price, then the rear wheel e-BMW SUV only makes sense if you believe that BMW is one provides outstanding quality that compensates for the higher power consumption and the higher price.
