BMW iX3 Revealed

BMW unveils their new all-electric iX3 SUV and it looks pretty normal compared to the normal i3 or i8. Just a different grille and a bit of blue accent trim that may not even make it into production as a standard feature. Something I'd be interested in if the car really can deliver the claimed 250 miles on a single charge.

I just hope what we get come time for production models to roll out that the electric version doesn't have body panels and parts that are so special that it impacts our insurance rates by a concerning amount. The more it can share parts with regular X3 models the better off we will be. How much of the above design do you think we will get?

Probably a similar grille and the blue trim. I think insurance would go down with electric wouldn't they, so long as the standard safety features are up to spec. Don't think body panels has to do with the final cost.

I would also think that insurance rates would be cheaper on electrics, as most of them are coming standard with advanced driving assist technology. I was really hoping that BMW was going to follow in the footsteps of Kia's Niro EV and remove the grille altogether. Similar to what we saw in the i Vision Dynamics concept.

If insurance rates get cheaper then it might have something to do with car maker influence, as long as its impacting their bottom line then they will have a hand in how that plays out. No other way around it.
