Despite the fact that the Geneva car dealership was closed due to the spread of the coronavirus, the automaker introduced several of its new products online.

Among the models presented by the company were the first electric Mini, an electrified version of the BMW iX3, a hybrid compact crossover BMW X1, a plug-in hybrid version of the BMW 3-Series sedan, and the long-awaited BMW Concept i4. The car received a 530-horsepower electric motor that can accelerate an electric car to 100 km / h in 4 seconds. The power reserve of the model is 600 km thanks to a battery capacity of 80 kW / h. Production of the model will be launched in Munich.

The design of the novelty is very close to the serial model – at least from the outside. Serial production of the car should start in 2021. The novelty is built on a new platform that can be used for electric vehicles, hybrids or cars with traditional internal combustion engines. Flexible architecture will be involved in the creation this year of the battery version of the popular X3 SUV, as well as the futuristic iNext.

After BMW introduced the hybrid version of its BMW X1 crossover for the Chinese market, the automaker announced the launch of a new product in Europe. The xDrive25e model offers customers “a high level of driving pleasure and breathtaking maneuverability.”

The new BMW 3-Series hybrid with the 330e iPerformance station wagon will be made on the basis of the B48 two-liter turbo engine, with power up to 184 horsepower (168 horsepower from the sedan), which is very modest for BMW. When working in tandem with an electric motor, the power rises to 250 hp. and 420 Nm of torque.
