BMW shares teaser video for its new iX3 SUV
Ahead of the official unveiling of the BMW iX3 SUV at the 2018 Auto Show in Beijing this week, German automaker has shared a teaser video for the new vehicle, which is being considered a part of the automaker’s X SUV line-up.
In its teaser video for iX3 SUV, BMW said: “Something exciting is coming. Stay tuned for the Auto China Beijing 2018!”
In addition to the teaser video, BMW also hinted in a Twitter post prior to the Beijing Auto Show 2018 -- beginning April 24 -- that the automaker’s rumoured iX3 SUV is apparently on its way. The iX3 will likely be based on the existing X3, but it will have a different look.
About the iX3 SUV, Harald Krueger -- Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG -- has told BMW Blog that the new vehicle will be the third car in the automaker’s ‘i’ electric-vehicle (EV) lineup, after the i3 and the i8 electric cars.
Krueger also revealed that the iX3 SUV is scheduled to hit the markets in 2020.
Previously, in an announcement made in March 2018, Krueger had introduced the new iX3 SUV when he said: “Over the course of the year, we will present a number of pure-electric concept vehicles that will all go into series production, like: The first all-electric BMW – the iX3.”
