BMW i4 confirmed – electric sedan set for production

BMW has officially confirmed that the i Vision Dynamics concept that was shown in Frankfurt last year will become reality, and will be known as the BMW i4 when it enters into series production.

The announcement about the electric sedan was made by the automaker at the Geneva Motor Show. It will be part of the 25 new electrified models the company has outlined for 2025, essentially one of the 12 pure electric models in the line-up.

Styled along four-door Gran Coupe lines in the same vein as the 4 Series Gran Coupe and 6 Series Gran Coupe, the i Vision Dynamics is capable of a 600 km operating range on a single charge, and performance figures include a 0-100 km/h time of four seconds and a top speed of 200 km/h.

The study also showcased the automaker’s next-gen battery technology that will begin appearing in its various plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles from around 2020. No timeframe for the i4’s entry into the market was announced, but the company is set to deploy a number of models ahead of it.

The i8 Roadster and the MINI Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 plug-in hybrid are due out this year, and three battery-electric vehicle (BEV) models have also been confirmed – the all-electric MINI in 2019, the all-electric BMW X3 in 2020 and the BMW iNEXT into 2021, so the BMW i4 will possibly arrive sometime in 2022.

  • One of the weirdest version of Beemer kidney grille.

      Because they have no need for the grille anymore since there is no engine… Oh and also it is a concept so the real thing probably looks very different.
