BMW promises 600 kilometres from its next-gen electric cars

BMW is cold-testing an all-electric version of its X3 sport-utility vehicle, along with two other all-new battery-powered vehicles, which the company claims will be able to go as far as 600 kilometres on a charge.

The upcoming BMW iX3, i4 and iNEXT are being tested near the Arctic Circle in Arjeplog, Sweden ahead of their market debuts to see how their batteries and motors perform in extremely cold weather conditions.

The iX3 will go on sale next year, while the other two models will be ready for 2021.

The iX3 will have an estimated range of more than 400 kilometres (all numbers based on European test cycles) and can be fast-charged at a DC charging station.
