Electric BMW X3 Prototype Proves BMW Wants to Become More Environmentally Friendly
We already knew BMW had plans regarding its access to the electric vehicle market. The release of BMW models such as the i3 and i8 is proof of this, however, turning already released vehicle models, such as the BMW X3, into fully electric cars, shows that the Bavarian automaker really means business when it comes to becoming more environmentally friendly.
While at first glance the BMW X3 looks like a normal version of the very popular SUV, the absence of an exhaust system and the presence of a charge port near the left, front wheel arch remind us that this is indeed a special variant of the BMW X3 model. The interesting fact about this particular version is that no compromise has been made in order for it to be transformed into an electric vehicle. Apart from the fuelling system being radically different, the electric BMW X3 will be fitted with the same equipment we see on the regular BMW X3s out there.
The electric BMW X3 is without a doubt a car that most BMW fans look forward to. The vehicle itself combines the best of both worlds. On one hand it is as luxurious as we’ve come to expect from the Bavarian automaker, while on the other, it is more environmentally friendly. Owning an electric vehicle also means saving money on account of electricity being cheaper than fuel. Another important advantage is the reduction of noise. It will be interesting to see how many people will decide to buy the electric BMW X3. The future looks promising for this particular model.
BMW has already planned to release a hybrid version of the same BMW X3 before it releases the fully electric one. Even if BMW is serious about concentrating on the electric vehicle market, it seems that the Bavarian automaker has planned a smooth and slow transition from the classic fuel vehicles to the modern electric ones. Having a solid strategy, BMW will definitely evolve and reach a new level of development.
The electric BMW X3 will definitely prove a successful concept. It will be interesting to see which BMW models will become electric next. Regardless, the presence of the BMW X3 electric prototype is a reminder that the electric upgrade plan has already begun. This shows that the Bavarian automaker is serious about concentrating on the electric market. This means BMW is about to offer serious competition to the other manufacturers of electric vehicles.
