What Car? says...
The BMW iX3 electric SUV marked a change of direction for the German brand – at least when it came to building cars that run on batteries.
What do we mean by that? Well, when the iX3 first showed up, BMW’s only previous EV (electric vehicle) was the much smaller i3 hatchback, which was built from the ground up to run on electricity.
Perhaps more pertinently if you're thinking of buying one, the BMW iX3 has a long range, the ability to charge up quickly and a relatively tempting price tag.
How does it compare with its rivals in the large electric SUV category – notably, the Audi E-tron, Jaguar I-Pace and Mercedes EQC? And is it a better buy than lower-riding alternatives, such as the Tesla Model 3? This review will tell you everything you need to know.
