A new ambitious BMW i4 all-electric car has been already caught in the open air. The world premiere will probably take place in September 2019 in Frankfurt.
BMW develops its own EV lineup, like other leading automakers. We’ve seen the compact BMW i3. The sports BMW i8 is a niche car which is rather specific. The all-electric BMW iX3 arrives soon, but that is not all.
Until recently, the Bavarian brand did not delight us with its electric vehicles. We hope the upcoming BMW i4 will be a breakthrough.
Paparazzi captured the BMW i4 in a production body. Thanks to some live photos we have more information about the car.
It will join the 4 Series lineup. The basis for the i4 is the new BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe built on CLAR platform. Great, isn’t it? Thus, the company will save on EV production and meet almost any demand.
Another advantage is the car’s exterior in a famous style, already seen on other BMW models, although, some electric individuality will likely be. We do not expect huge nostrils on this model.
According to rumors, plausible enough, the i4 will receive a rear-wheel drive version and a twin-engine modification with four driving wheels. The expected range for cars with batteries of various capacities will be from 342 to 435 miles (550-700km). Impressive, right?
