German car manufacturer BMW recently announced that it is soon launching the BMW iX3, the first-ever car from its collection to go all-electric, the official press release indicated.
BMW stated, “The BMW Group is systematically pursuing its electrification strategy and will release the new BMW iX3 onto the market by the end of 2020. Standard production of the BMW core brand’s first pure electric model will get underway at the BMW Brilliance Automotive joint venture (BBA) in China in late summer as planned: BBA Plant Dadong will produce the first Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) with a pure electric drive train for the global market.”
This all-electric vehicle is part of the significant change transitioning the industry from combustion engine production to battery-powered cars. In this way, it is more sustainable.
Unlike the older combustion engine cars that make use of various engines, the BMW iX3 is going to use the “standardized electric drivetrain” for global demand. This is a significant jump since it will seek to reduce production costs, getting the finished output to the market.
