BMW i4, with 300 miles of range, to go on sale this year

BMW’s i3 was a highly innovative vehicle when it went on the market in 2013, but to the disappointment of EV enthusiasts, the Bavarian automaker’s interest in electrification soon faded—it was only 7 years later that the company released another EV, the iX3, which still is not on sale in the US.

Finally, at the BMW Group’s recent Annual Conference, we got a preview of the upcoming BMW i4, an electric 4-door Gran Coupé that is schedule to enter the market during the course of 2021.

The BMW i4 model line will be available in different versions, which will include a BMW M Performance variant. Range will be up to 590 km (WLTP) or 300 miles (EPA). Power output will be up to 390 kW (530 hp), and acceleration from zero to 100 km/h is expected to be “around 4 seconds.”

BMW has released some photos and a short video of a pre-production prototype, but says that full details on the i4 will be released “over the next weeks.”

“With its sporty looks, best in class driving dynamics and zero local emissions, the BMW i4 is a true BMW,” said Pieter Nota, Member of BMW’s Board of Management. “It makes the heart of the BMW brand now beat fully electric.”
