The BMW iX3 all-electric SUV has undergone an exterior design refresh for a more visually striking exterior appearance.

BMW has updated the all-electric iX3 SUV.

The new car has undergone an exterior design refresh.

The kidney grille on the new iX3 is now larger than before and now features a BMW i badge
The BMW kidney grille is now larger than before and has a single-piece frame which comes in Pearl-effect Chrome with a blue accent - in familiar BMW i style - along the inner edges. Its inner elements also now feature a mesh-like structure and feature a BMW i badge.

The head light contours are now 10mm slimmer, helping to give the new BMW iX3 a sharper look and lending the front end a distinct similarity to that of the BMW iX and BMW i4.

The lower air intake, which comes with 10-stage active air flap control to cool the drive system components and brakes, has gained in size. The air curtains positioned at the outer edges of the front end are now L-shaped and have blue accents.

Air breathers in the front side panels also have a new M-specific design, while the blue accent in the side skirts is omitted. Muscular and aerodynamically optimised surfacing marks out the rear apron of the new BMW iX3.

The new car has lost the blue accents in the side skirts, but gets a black surround in its rear lights to mark them out more precisely
The outer elements of the rear diffuser are in BMW i Blue and the contours of the fully LED rear lights are marked out even more precisely by a black surround. The striking design at night is defined by the slim light graphic and new three-dimensional pincer-shaped contouring with delicately integrated, horizontal turn signal indicators.

The BMW iX3 continues to deploy BMW Group's fifth-generation eDrive technology which sends power to both the 400V battery and the 12V on-board power supply. When charging using alternating current, it enables both single-phase and three-phase charging at up to 11kW.

Plugging the vehicle into a direct current rapid-charging station opens the door to charging outputs of up to 150kW, meaning the high-voltage battery can be charged from zero to 80% of its full capacity in 34 minutes. Drivers can inject the power required to add 100km to the car's driving range (in the WLTP cycle) in just 10 minutes.
