A NEW ERA OF eDRIVE
One of the most important updates the BMW iX3 brings is the new 5th Generation BMW eDrive technology, this is also what makes the first-ever BMW electric SAV so exciting. The electric motor, electronic systems and transmission are now combined into one central unit, this reduces space and importantly weight. The result of these updates is an eDrive system that offers much better EfficientDynamics. In short the power to weight ratio is greatly improved (by up to 30%) and a repositioned battery results in greater interior space.
