Say hello to the iX3, BMW's 'first' electric car
The Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) is the first one from BMW in its new range of cars. An enlarged kidney grille, that's filled in to improve aero efficiency, dominates the front fascia which has smaller air inlets and smoother surfacing, too, compared to the mainstream BMW X3. It achieves this with what BMW says is a new more compact fifth-generation eDrive motor and transmission along with more powerful batteries, all of which bring advances in terms of performance characteristics, operating range, weight, packaging space and flexibility, says BMW. That means better performance, operating range, weight, packaging space, and flexibility in the vehicle.
With the world premiere of the BMW Concept iX3, the BMW Group is opening a new chapter in its electrification strategy. Hang on, you might say, isn't there are little thing called the i3 electric auto running around?
Trump denies Cohen will 'flip' Michael is a businessman for his own account/lawyer who I have always liked & respected. Trump later corrected the misspelling of Haberman's name.
Additionally, the iX3 will be the first BMW nameplate to be built in China for global markets. BMW says this will also allow its future cars to be more flexible with their powertrains, whether that be combustion engines, plug-in hybrids or all-electric-cars. Another notable element is that the electric motor does not need any rare earths, which means the BMW Group is not dependent on their availability. Entirely electric, it's powered by an electric motor that draws electricity from a 70-kWh battery pack which stores enough juice for about 250 miles of range in the European testing cycle. Meanwhile, BMW has also promised a non-SUV i4 model for the same year - it's rumoured to take design cues from the Vision Dynamics concept that was shown at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. The concept study is also fitted with light-alloy wheels in an aerodynamically optimised design. Using fast charging (think: 150 kilowatts, CCS standard) will deliver an 80 percent charge in 30 minutes.

DOJ investigating AT&T and Verizon for collusion
The source said the Obama administration had investigated similar claims in 2016 but did not take any action. The Apple Watch 3, Google Pixel 2 smartphone and Microsoft Surface all have eSIM abilities, for example.
