The BMW Concept iX3 will debut at the Beijing Motor Show later this week. The German automaker will release a teaser video before the arrival of the all-electric show car.
The short clip shows the kidney grids of the current G01 X3, followed immediately by the Concept iX3. As you can see, the latter is a unit reminiscent of what you saw in the i Vision Dynamics concept, and probably a hallmark of upcoming BMW i models.
According to earlier spyshots, the production version of the Concept iX3 could be based on the X3, but with its own, unique styling elements. The mules that were spotted lacked tailpipes and had charging ports, but looked largely identical to the standard X3.
For now, details about the electric drive of the concept remain a mystery, though it is known that the iX3 is a "Gen 4 battery electric vehicle" like the upcoming MINI EV. While the concept will be released soon, the production version will not be released until 2020. Other BMW i models that are in the works are the iNeXT in 2021
