BMW plans to Expand Electric Vehicle Offerings with iX-badged SUVs

So it makes sense that the German marque has trademarked a range of "i" nameplates that preview an entire range electrified vehicles.

In November, it was reported that BMW had trademarked the iX3 nameplate for use in a fully electric version of the X3.

BMW, which introduced the i3 electric vehicle in 2013, is getting ready to standardize electric cars by 2020 and intends to have 12 different models by 2025.

Responding to a complaint that the claims were misleading, BMW said the i3 came in one model which was a battery electric vehicle with an optional "range extender" - a small petrol engine that did not power the auto but maintained the battery charge. BMW chairman Harald Krüger confirmed that the company owns the naming rights to all 18 names, a number of which would be put to use on production vehicles in the next few years.

"Our i story enters the next round", Krüger said in the interview.

BMW is further investing in its scalable modular system, which means that the technology can also be fitted in several non-electric models as well.

A paid-for Facebook post regarding the manufacturer's i3 model featured a customer testimonial, which stated: "Having driven petrol guzzling cars before, I realised that it is now time to switch to an electric auto".

Before the 2013 launch of its "i" sub-brand, BMW had secured the names of potential i-branded vehicles by applying for i1 through i9 monikers in 2010. We also hold the rights for BMW X - from iX1 to iX9'.
