BMW recently trademarked a long list of names for its future electric SUVs and although a trademarked name isn’t always used, BMW has just confirmed that one will in fact be used for the electric X3. The electric X3 will arrive in 2020 with an iX3 badge.
“In 2020 we will launch the fully electric X3. In it, X and i come together,” BMW CEO Harald Krueger revealed to Automotive News Europe. Krueger did not give any other details about what other future models we can expect.
In addition to the iX names, BMW has also trademarked the names i1 to i9. As of right now only the i3 and i8 names are being used, but an i9 flagship is expected as well as an i5.
BMW also revealed the updated 2019 i8 last week at the LA Auto Show, which finally saw the introduction of the i8 Roadster.
