BMW iX3 SUV (2021 - )

As an all-electric version of one of its most popular SUVs, the iX3 looks like an automatic smash hit for BMW. Its range between charges is impressive, but its performance is only middling when compared to other expensive electric SUVs, even if the electric X3’s refinement is superb.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

The BMW iX3 launches with well-equipped but expensive trim levels, though pricing is expected to settle down as the range expands to include more affordable variants.

Overall the key focus for BMW in developing the iX3 was to learn lessons from its work on the i3. And so the iX3 has an 80kWh battery and delivers 279 miles of range. BMW also claims it has been built in a CO2-neutral factory, and that goes for the battery cells, too.

That long range between charges should mean most owners of the iX3 won’t have to rely on the public charging network. Those that can install a home charging point will be able to match their charging schedule to their home electricity tariff and potentially claw back a decent percentage of the monthly budget. On top of all that, fewer moving parts, in comparison to a petrol, diesel or hybrid alternative, will mean low servicing and maintenance costs. Tax incentives like VED and Benefit In Kind continue to make electric cars an appealing choice for those hoping to keep their running costs down.
