BMW i4 is the carmaker’s most conventional electric car and i brand model to this point. In fact, the i4 is considered a fastback sedan that is similar to the gas-powered 4 Series Gran Coupe. This one is packed with batteries and electric motors. This would be under the sheet metal. However, the bucktooth grille is obviously present and accounted for, in fact, it is at least functional, the housing sensors are needed for advanced driver assistance systems.
BMW Mix of Traditional Appeal and Range and Power
Every other i model has been a rather severe experiment in design. However, the i4 is going to appeal to people that are interested in EVs. Is it a safe bet which mixes traditional appeal with a magnificent range and power. In fact, it is the first model to supposedly get an M variant. However, the i4 M50 is more of an M Sport than a full-fledged M car.
New EV Platform
It was built on BMW’s new EV platform. It will underpin a range of new cars. The i4 promises up to 300 miles of range and up to 536 hp, though not on the same trim level. Moreover, the basic rear-drive i4 eDrive40 is a winner in terms of range. The M50 comes in at 245 miles. Both models use the same 84-kWh battery and it can be charged from 10 to 80 percent in 31 minutes on a 200-kW DC fast charger. In fact, the single-motor eDrive40 will make 335 hp and 317 lb-ft of torque. That is enough to hit 60 mph in 5.7 seconds, BMW says. Thus, the dual-motor M50 makes up to 536 hp and 586 lb-ft of torque in over-boost mode. It can also get up to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds, per BMW. (Normally, it makes 469 hp and 538 lb-ft.)
