DIPLOMAT PARTNERSHIP 55
How does it feel to drive? Well, the iX3 delivers hallmark agility
thanks to a low weight battery, even weight distribution and
ARB technology to provide an agile and dynamic handling allelectric vehicle.
STYLING & CONNECTIVITY
The harmony between the aesthetic styling and the modern
exclusivity of the interior continues with a focus on passenger
comfort and optimised ergonomics for ease of use, whilst
combining subtle iX3 design features that reinforce the
progressive nature of this model. All iX3 models are equipped
with the latest BMW Live Cockpit Professional as standard.
The pronounced 10.25” Central Information Display (CID)
is seamlessly complimented by the 12.3” Digital Driver
Cockpit and powered by the latest Operating System 7.0.
“IT HAS A FAB INFOTAINMENT SYSTEM AND A SMART
INTERIOR, SO IT’S A FINE BUY IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR
A BIG SUV THAT RUNS SOLEY ON ELECTRICITY.”
Thanks to the digital services available as part of Connected
Charging, you can also ensure that you are always getting the
best out of the electric range of the new iX3. As soon as you start
planning your trip, the system points you to the nearest public
charging stations on your route and informs you in advance of their
availability and the charging currents offered. To get the most out of
the charging time, you will also be shown nearby points of interest,
such as a café or restaurant.
BMW understands that when it comes to electric cars, there are a
lot of questions around charging. However encouragingly, what
BMW have found is that soon after purchasing, owners tend to find
that charging becomes more of an intuitive routine than a specific
operation, and options such as Connected Drive provide easy and
convenient charging solutions. BMW are confident that you can
always rely on your new iX3 to get you where you need to be in time.
This is great, but what other charging options are available?
Using the cables provided, you can charge the high voltage battery
via a conventional 3-pin plug socket, or at any one of the extensive
UK network of public charging stations. However, for regular fast
charging BMW recommends that a dedicated private charging station
(Wallbox) be installed. This ensures a faster and more convenient
home charging experience. Their official installation partner, bp
pulse, guarantee a reliable solution from a single source, including
consultation, delivery, installation and start-up.
ChargeNow is a service from BMW which, in partnership with bp
pulse, enables customers in the UK to access the largest network of
public charging points nationwide with a single card – the BMW
ChargeNow charging card. Charging points are displayed directly in
the navigation system, making it especially quick and easy to find and
use public charging points. Electric made simple, easy and enjoyable!
