PostHeaderIcon BMW i4

Back in 2014, BMW took a very confident step into the world of the EV, officially launching its “Project i” sub-brand with the i3. Following hot on its heels was the remarkable i8 hybrid coupe, which garnered the German brand oodles of green cred for its futuristic aesthetic and advanced powertrain. These days, BMW says it has big plans for its electrified lineup, with a total of 12 battery-electrics planned by 2025, plus 13 hybrids as well. One of the most exciting prospects is dubbed to i4, which promises four-door practicality, high-end luxury, extraterrestrial styling, and next-generation technology.

Update 03/15/2019:We’ve received a second look at the 2020 BMW i4, this time as it was being put through cold-weather testing. There’s still a lot of mystery surrounding the i4, however, we have learned a few new bits of information. Check out our new images and what we’ve learned in our special “Spy Shots” section below.

PostHeaderIcon Can an All-Electric Car Be a True Driver’s Car? BMW Looks to Find Out with the 2021 i4

BMW has planned its near-future quite well. Even though its latest design philosophy– we’re talking about electric cars designs, not the infamous “twinning” concept – has garnered a lot of heat, BMW is still banking on zero-emission cars to safely propel the company into the EV revolution. To achieve this, the automaker is leaving no stone unturned to make sure that all kinds of folks are pleased. As such, the i4 EV is said to be a true driver’s car, through and through.

BMW is adding yet another all-electric car to its portfolio – the i4. BMW Chairman Harald Krüger has announced at the ongoing Paris Motor Show that the i4 will be launched in 2021. The i4 becomes the fifth vehicle in the lineup, which already includes the BMW i3, 2019 MINI Electric, 2020 iX3, and the iNext.

The BMW i4 is expected to be one of BMW’s first all-electric cars when it hits the market in the next few years. The German automaker is targeting a launch by 2020, and the development of the EV sedan is progressing enough that BMW believes that it can have a range of anywhere from 340 to 435 miles. If those numbers hold true, the i4 could have the chops and capabilities to take on the Tesla Model S.

“The i4 will be powered by BMW’s fifth generation eDrive electric drive technology, a step up from the fourth generation electric drive technology that we’re going to see on the i8”

We already know a few things about the BMW i4. We know that it will be based on the BMW i Vision Dynamics Concept that we first laid our eyes on back at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. We also know that, in full production form, the i4 will likely resemble the 4 Series Gran Coupe. Oh, and the electric sedan will be powered by BMW’s fifth generation eDrive electric drive technology, a step up from the fourth generation electric drive technology that we’re going to see on the i8 Roadster when it hits showrooms in May.

All that said, there are still a number of things that BMW is keeping close to its chest regarding the i4. BMW CEO Harald Krueger revealed one of those items during the automaker’s annual press conference this week. According to Krueger, the fifth generation eDrive electric drive technology will be able to give the i4 around “550 to 700 kilometers” of range. Do the math and that converts to 340 to 435 miles, enough to give the i4 one of the longest battery ranges of any electric car that’s expected to hit the market soon.

“The fifth generation eDrive electric drive technology will be able to give the i4 around “550 to 700 kilometers” of range”

Obviously, the actual number will probably be different once the technology is in place and ready to be used. But give credit to BMW for swinging for the fences with its estimate. Not only does it beat the current top range of the Tesla Model S — around 330 miles with some add-ons — but it’s maximum estimate puts it at more than 100 miles more in range compared to the current segment standard-bearer. Granted, Tesla still has a few years of its own to improve on the range of the Model S, but rest assured, BMW is developing the i4 to be a full-blown competitor to the Model S.

With those shots fired, all BMW has to do is to make sure that the i4 lives up to expectations. The German automaker is already hard at work at putting all the pieces in place for the production of the all-electric premium sedan. According to Robert Irlinger, the head of BMW’s i division, production of the i4 will start “as soon as we have all our modular systems working, so something around 2020.”

“We are working on a very competitive and innovative project; we are trying to find the right design for the car,” Irlinger added.

“The BMW i4 is shaping up to be one of the automaker’s most important models in recent years, so don’t expect BMW to half-ass its development”

If anything, Irlinger still sounds like a man who’s confident in what the company can create. I would be, too, if I had BMW’s resources at my disposal. Just don’t expect the company to rush the development process just so it can meet its target timetable. In a separate report, Krueger admitted that Bimmer is going to take its time developing the right technology for all of its electric car efforts.

The BMW i4 is shaping up to be one of the automaker’s most important models in recent years, so don’t expect BMW to half-ass its development. There’s a lot at stake in this segment now that a lot of automakers are planning their own all-electric premium sedans. It’s important for BMW to have the right car in place that can not only compete against rival automakers but, more importantly, can set the bar for what a premium all-electric sedan should be.
