BMW announces the first fully electric i4
In March, BWM gave us a teaser of their first-ever fully electric i4. Of course, BWM heads went off to a frenzy as its design looked stunning. The i4 will be a gran coupe and will be made from a set of unique futuristic parts. So being petrol heads or should we say electric heads, we had to find out a bit more about the i4, so this is everything we know about it so far. The BMW i4 will take on rivals such as Tesla Model 3 and Audi e-tron GT. It will comprise of a 528kW electric motor and an 80.0-kWh battery pack. BMW has claimed that the i4 can reach a driving range of 590km, which is impressive for the Germans.
The cabin of the i4 will feature a rose gold trim option, which comes equipped with a white leather upholstery, and light wood trim. The i4 will take inspiration to the brand’s 3-series sedan, meaning that its interior is likely to be very spacious. The i4 will also be the first BMW to feature the brand’s latest infotainment system and connectivity features. BMW has called it the iDrive 8, which will be operated through a 14.9-inch touchscreen which is integrated with a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel on a big, curved display on the dashboard. It will offer a rotary controller on the centre console and will be controlled via voice commands. As expected, it will offer Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and 5G mobile capability.
The BMW i4 is set to go into production within this year, with a launch date still to be announced.
