BMW revealed today their first all-electric sedan, the i4, and it comes with some decent range estimates but a design that says internal combustion more than electric.
At the BMW Group Annual Conference, the German automaker revealed few details on the i4, saying more information will be released in the coming weeks.
It did reveal the i4 has yet to begin production, but will enter the market “during the course of 2021”. When it arrives the top-of-the-line M Performance variant will have 530 horsepower (390kW) giving the Gran Coupé a 0-60mph time of around 4 seconds.
The i4 will also come in other variants with range estimates as high as 300 miles (482km) based on the EPA rating standard, or 366 miles (590km) based on the more generous WLTP standard.
The styling of the electric i4 doesn’t look very electric at all. BMW has maintained their massively oversized kidney bean front grille found on their internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles. The rear bumper also has blue accents to highlight the missing exhausts from its gas counterpart.
No information on pricing was released, but that should be coming soon along with images of the interior.
