The fit drivetrain for a quite electric BMW iX3.

Munich. The BMW iX3, a prolongation of that will
embark in 2020, facilitates locally emission-free pushing in a novel
and fit form, while also being suitable for bland use. A
operation of some-more than 440 km* within a legislative WLTP exam cycle will
be achieved with a net-battery distance of 74 kWh*. The initial purely
electric Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) is a explorer for BMW
eDrive record of a fifth generation, which, starting 2021, will
also be deployed in a BMW i4 and a BMW iNEXT. For this purpose,
both a expostulate complement and a high-voltage battery section featuring
pioneering battery dungeon record have been totally redeveloped.
In a BMW iX3, a associated enrichment ensures brand-typical driving
knowledge sum with superb potency and a novel change of
weight and range.

The BMW iX3 is nonetheless a serve miracle in a consistent
realization of a BMW Group’s foundation strategy. In 2020 the
BMW X3 will turn a brand’s initial indication accessible both with
required petrol and diesel engines as good as plug-in hybrid and
quite electric drive. With this “power of choice” offer, a globally
handling association is holding into comment a several different
mandate and needs of their worldwide business worldwide as well
as limit efficacy in a rebate of CO2 emissions. The BMW
iX3 is constructed for a universe marketplace by a corner try BMW
Brilliance Automotive in Shenyang, China.

The fifth-generation BMW eDrive record is a pivotal to
future-oriented sustainability for vehicles with electrified drive
systems. It is a outcome of unchanging growth work within the
horizon of BMW EfficientDynamics and a knowledge gained by the
BMW Group in a margin of electric mobility travelling some-more than 10
years. All powertrain components used for BMW eDrive record were
grown usually by a BMW Group. Moreover, a electric engine and
a high-voltage batteries are constructed in corporately owned
prolongation facilities. In this way, a BMW Group ensures it has a
wilful change on a product properties and a peculiarity of each
component. Furthermore, a expostulate section and a high-voltage battery
section are flexibly scalable in terms of appetite and appetite calm and
can so be used in several opposite automobile concepts and segments.


EfficientDynamics during a best: New expostulate member with high
potency and brand-typical appetite characteristics.  

In a BMW iX3, EfficientDynamics reaches a new level. The
vehicle’s fifth-generation BMW eDrive record comprises a drive
section in that electric motor, complement wiring and delivery are
brought together into a executive housing. As a result, a required
designation space of a expostulate record and a weight are
intensely reduced. The ratio between engine outlay and weight of the
expostulate complement improves around 30 percent compared to a previous
The electric engine featured in a BMW iX3 delivers a
limit appetite outlay of 210 kW/286 hp*. The torque of 400 Nm* allows
for high initial acceleration and keeps a high turn even during a upper
engine speeds since of disdainful BMW pattern measures.

A serve special underline of a electric engine being deployed
in a BMW iX3 for a initial time is a construction process that
eliminates a need for singular earth materials.

The electric engine used in a BMW iX3 transfers appetite to the
back wheels. This effectuates a serve boost in expostulate system
efficiency. Moreover, a operation of a BMW iX3 advantages from a drive
pattern conveying a normal BMW rear-wheel expostulate experience.


High-voltage batteries with poignant aloft appetite density
and obliged use of tender materials.

The high-voltage battery section of a BMW iX3 is constituent partial of
BMW’s fifth eDrive era and is formed on a latest expansion in
NMC-811 record in BMW standard kaleidoscopic design. The BMW Group has
superb growth capabilities in this field. This know-how
flows into accurate specifications with courtesy to a use of materials
and battery design, according to that a battery cells are produced.
Consistent investigate and growth work not usually raises energy
firmness though also constantly improves all battery dungeon characteristics,
in sold also continuance and safety. In total, a BMW
high-voltage battery shows a best of what is possible
At a same time a BMW engineers were means to reduce
a share of cobalt contained in a battery by another dual thirds.
Compared to former record used by BMW Group, a gravimetric
appetite firmness on dungeon turn in a BMW iX3 is around 20 percent higher.

With a BMW iX3 a tender materials Cobalt and Lithium for the
initial time are purchased by BMW directly and afterwards handed over to the
writer of a battery cells.

In addition, scalability and a compress pattern of a high-voltage
battery section have been serve optimised. The battery cells are
grouped into modules during specialised BMW prolongation locations and
finally fabricated as high-voltage battery packs aligned to any model.
The high-voltage battery section in a BMW iX3 is commissioned in an
intensely prosaic position in a automobile floor. Thanks to this
arrangement, there is no detriment of space for passengers and a luggage
cell compared to a conventionally powered versions of a BMW X3.


Greater operation interjection to high potency rather than a bigger battery

With a net appetite calm of 74 kWh*, a high-voltage battery unit
commissioned in a BMW iX3 achieves a operation of some-more than 440 km* in the
legislative WLTP exam cycle. Within a segment, a BMW iX3 boasts
not usually a singular low appetite expenditure of reduction than 20 kWh/100km*
accordingly to a WLTP exam cycle, though also stands for a novel ratio
between battery distance and range.
Thanks to a favourable
potency rating of a expostulate components and a high appetite density
of a high-voltage battery unit, a BMW iX3 achieves a operation that is
usually probable for common electric vehicles with incomparable and thus
heavier batteries.

Positive environmental impact secured.

The “real” ecological footprint of electric vehicles is
infrequently questioned, quite in markets still carrying a low
commission of immature electricity in a open appetite grid. At a BMW
Group each electrified indication has to explanation that for a whole cycle,
comprising tender element procurement, supply chain, prolongation and
use proviso as good as recycling, a CO2 change is substantially
softened than a one of a conventionally powered sibling.  For a BMW
iX3 a associated advantage is some-more than 30 percent compared to a BMW X3
sDrive 20d when normal European appetite supply is used during a car’s
use phase. If a automobile is charged with immature electricity the
advantage is around 60 percent.

Furthermore, in analogy with a BMW i3 PlugPlay technology, the
high-voltage battery featured in a BMW iX3 is designed for a second
life as a still battery container for a duration following a first
prolonged life in a car. This approach a already certain CO2 change of the
BMW iX3 can be serve improved.
