  Volvo's first EV will be a hatchback shooting for 310-mile range It will offer a selection of various motors and batteries.The car, which will use Volvo's Compact Modular Architecture (CMA) platform, will also borrow the 40-series nomenclature. Volvo R&D head Henrik Green told Autocar that the new EV will have a target range of about 310 miles, considerably more than the concept's 217-mile driving range. "It feels like every month we are updating the requirement," said Green, "trying to add new competitive edges to the car because the technology is moving so fast now on a lot of areas, so it's much more of a moving target.

BMW has revealed the iX 3 concept , which combines SUV styling and functionality with an all - electric powertrain as the brand looks to expand its electric vehicle offering. Unveiled at the 2018 Auto China show in Beijing , the iX 3 uses the brand’s fifth generation eDrive system.

BMW has uncovered the next step in its grand electrification strategy with the reveal of the Concept iX 3 at the Beijing Motor Show. It’s an all - electric X3 SUV set to arrive in 2020 and will be built in China at the firm’s Shenyang plant.

BMW will expand its full-electric powertrain technology into its core lineup, as evidenced by the Concept iX3 SUV seen today at Auto China 2018 in Beijing. Interestingly, the Concept iX3 will be the first electric-only vehicle from BMW’s core brand (as opposed to its i sub-brand), and it will take the form of a small luxury crossover rather than a space-pod compact hatch.

With the Geneva Motor Show opening its doors to media members on March 6, we’re now getting even more information as to what companies have planned in the next coming days.

BMW will expand its full- electric powertrain technology into its core lineup, as evidenced by the Concept iX 3 SUV seen today at Auto China 2018 in Beijing .

BMW kicked off this week’s Beijing Motor Show with two announcements today. The company unveiled a concept version of the forthcoming iX 3 SUV These are all vast improvements to the car that the iX 3 is ostensibly taking the baton from: the BMW i3. That was the company’s actual first fully electric

Working in the Concept iX3’s immediate favor is its inoffensive, attractive styling, which represents an about-face from BMW’s polarizing i3 and i8 electric cars. Clearly based on the production-spec 2018 BMW X3 SUV, the iX3 gets a closed, two-element version of BMW’s classic kidney grille—squint and you’ll see influences from the futuristic i Vision Dynamics concept. The iX3 also gets aerodynamic enhancements, such as reshaped front and rear bumpers, a rear diffuser, unique side skirts, and lightweight alloy wheels with a wind-cheating design. The Concept iX3 also gets signature BMW i Blue accents throughout.

Underneath the skin, the Concept iX3 gets BMW eDrive technology, now in its fifth iteration. eDrive groups the electric motor, transmission, and powertrain electronics into a single unit, allowing BMW engineers to integrate the flexible component into different vehicle architectures. The power unit is also modular, which facilitates adding performance as appropriate (a larger or M-Sport–branded machine, for example).

BMW 's big reveal at the Auto China 2018 in Beijing is the Concept iX 3 , an all - electric SUV study based on the latest X3 — think of it as an X3 that received the BMW i treatment.

Thanks to eDrive and a 70-kWh battery, the Concept iX3 has a theoretical driving range of nearly 250 miles, and BMW claims it can be recharged from a fast-charging station in as little as 30 minutes. With 200 kW (or 270 hp) on board, the Concept iX3 should slot in just above the X3 xDrive30i, performance-wise.

BMW maintains that it will continue building dedicated electric vehicles through its i sub-brand, but machines like the iX3 will allow the company to introduce even its more mainstream customers to the virtues and advantages of all-electric motoring. When the iX3 makes the transition from concept to production—possibly sometime next year—it will likely be built by BMW Brilliance Automotive in Shenyang, China, using parts supplied from other BMW production facilities (including our own Spartanburg, South Carolina, plant). Pricing is still an unknown, but we expect it’d demand less than a base Tesla Model X, which starts at $78,300 before destination charges or tax incentives.

Pictured above, was an evolution of the Vision Next 100 concept that BMW created to celebrate its 100th anniversary. We know it will be called the i4 when it goes into production, but BMW hasn't said when that will be or how the powertrain will differ. When we first saw , it promised a 373-mile range, a 120-mile top speed, and a 0-60 time of less than four seconds.This year, BMW will also spend even more money on research and development than it did in 2017.

As expected sinec they have been teasing the vehicle , BMW opened the Auto China 2018 show in Beijing with the unveiling of its next all - electric vehicle : the BMW iX 3 . The German automaker claims a range of 250 miles of range for the all - electric SUV

Volvo Plans to Sell a Ridiculous Number of EVs by 2025 .
Aiming for EVs to account for half of all salesIn a statement released this week, Volvo announced plans to significantly increase sales of EVs over the next few years. By 2025, its goal is for half of all its sales to be electric vehicles. Not electrified vehicles. Fully electric. Plus, since Volvo intends for all newly introduced models to use an electric motor starting in 2019, the other half of its sales will be mild hybrids and PHEVs.
