According to official data, the mass production of all three “green” models of the Bavarian brand starts by the end of 2021.

A couple of minutes ago, the press service of the German automaker published a teaser on which it showed three prototypes of completely new electric cars – iX3 and iNext crossovers, as well as the i4 fastback. Personally, my attention immediately “nailed” to the crossover iX3 – the fact is that the brand management has already confirmed the beginning of its production next year.

This means that we, most likely, will see the serial version of this novelty already this year at some motor show.

It is known that the car will receive a fifth-generation electric BMW eDrive powerplant and will be able to boast a range of 400 km. BMW also claims that the crossover battery can be fully charged in just half an hour using a 150-kilowatt charging station.

It is reported that the 4-door fastback i4 and the iNext crossover are now undergoing a series of road tests, although so far we have not seen photos from these very tests. According to the assurances of the guys from BMW, the i4 will be able to travel over a distance of more than 600 kilometers, and from 0 to 100 km / h it will be able to accelerate in four seconds. Serial production of i4 will begin in 2021.

BMW calls the iNext crossover the technological flagship of the company, which has autonomous driving capabilities of level 3 and a power reserve equal to i4. The novelty will work on the future modular platform of the automaker and will receive the “latest innovations” in the field of design and electrification. This crossover will also go into production in 2021.
