Spy Shots: BMW i4 Electric Vehicle
Our spies have caught a camouflaged i4 riding on the back of a car carrier, giving us our first look at the new four-door EV.
At the Paris auto show in October, BMW chairman Harald Krüger confirmed that the brand will launch yet another all-new electric vehicle in 2021. Dubbed the i4, it will be the BMW Group’s fifth fully electric “core” model and the fourth new EV brought to market between now and 2021.
The i4 will follow the form set by last year’s i Vision Dynamics concept, which, at the time, we thought would take the name i5. BMW has given no details on the production i4 aside from the release date. In early 2018, BMW CEO Harold Kruger stated that the upcoming i4 would feature BMW’s fifth generation of eDrive technology, which he said “will be able to drive 550 to 700 kilometers on electric power, depending on the model. We will achieve this in the BMW i4 and the iNEXT.” That would mean we should expect approximately 340-435 miles of range for the i4.
