Default 2021 BMW iX3 (bimmer)

"The electric BMW is based on the current X3 and features a fifth-generation eDrive system, including an 80 kWh battery pack and an electric motor with 282 HP and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque. BMW says that the iX3 will be capable of traveling up to 285 miles (460 km) on a full charge."

I will admit I liked both the i3 and, especially, the i8; To think that now we get a X3 with an electric engine instead is kind of sad for me, even if that is likely more what the market wants (though, unlike a Tesla Mode 3 or Y, will still be very pricey)

Then again, this is the first of several electrics from BMW - the iNext (whatever it will actually be called in production form) is coming, as is the i4.

I love the design both inside and out. Not every electric crossover has to look futuristic and ultra-modern.

This is like putting (blue) lipstick on a pig. Their dedicated electric models are head-turners. This just ain't. Great for people that want something safe and familiar looking I suppose.
