The BMW iX3 electric car could become the first BMW exported from China to the United States. On Monday, BMW announced it will build the iX3 in China through an expanded partnership with local automaker Brilliance, called the BMW Brilliance Automotive (BBA).

The partnership will see 520,000 BMW vehicles built in China annually, and the figure includes the iX3 electric SUV. Notably, the production announcement comes as China and the U.S. engage in a trade war. The former retaliated against a round of tariffs with a 25 percent tax on imported cars. BMW will increase prices of U.S-made SUVs as a result of the tariffs.

The iX3 will boast a 270-horsepower electric motor with a 70-kilowatt-hour battery pack providing the juice. BMW estimates the range to be 250 miles. When it comes time to charge the electric car, a 150-kilowatt CCS Combo fast charger will be able to charge the battery to 80 percent in as few as 30 minutes.
