BMW has finally revealed the all-electric i4 electric sport sedan. The BMW i4 Gran Coupe was unveiled at the BMW Group’s annual meeting, but some technical details are kept under wraps for now.
The BMW i4 is a four-door, all-electric Gran Coupe that will be available later this year, including a sporty BMW M Performance variant. The production version of the car shown during the conference has an elegant design with recessed handles and a distinctive front grille, which is characteristic of BMW.
The i4 will be available in three power levels: eDrive35, eDrive40 (both with exclusive rear-wheel drive), and the top-of-the-line M50 (available exclusively with xDrive and specific M Performance individualization).
According to the WLTP cycle, the BMW i4 will have a range of up to 590 kilometres on a single charge. The electric sedan’s engine is capable of producing up to 530 horsepower. It can also go from zero to 100 kilometres per hour in about four seconds.
Pieter Nota, member of the Board of Management of BMW AG said “With its sporty looks, best in class driving dynamics, and zero local emissions, the BMW i4 is a true BMW. It makes the heart of the BMW brand now beat fully electric,”
The 2022 BMW i4 electric sport sedan, as predicted, looks very similar to the concept version shown at CES 2020 a year ago. It gets a redesigned grille that resembles a bucktooth and is identical in shape and size to the current 3 and 4 series. Indeed, photos posted on social media confirm that the new BMW i4 will be a pure electric version of the forthcoming BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe.
The upcoming BMW i4 will be the German automaker’s first electric sports car, as well as one of the first BMW models to use the latest iDrive 8 technology. The new i4’s cabin is dominated by a 14.9-inch touchscreen monitor and a 12.3-inch optical instrument cluster.
