BMW will add to its two-car electrified "i" lineup, which currently consists of the i3 electric hatchback and the i8 plug-in-hybrid sports car, with the i4 sedan by 2022. Seemingly every new electric car must be contextualized against Tesla, so consider the i4 to be BMW's take on the mainstream and relatively affordable Model 3, with a $50,000-ish base price.
Hot on the heels of the first i7 batch of spy shots, BMW has now released preliminary technical specifications about another EV it’s currently developing. Even though it won’t be introduced until 2021, the i4 is revealing some of its secrets as we get to learn its electric motor will push out approximately 523 horsepower (390 kilowatts). The high output prompts BMW to say the electric sedan will offer levels of power comparable to a traditional model in the automaker’s lineup equipped with a V8.
You can pretty much think of the i4 as an electric variant of the 4 Series Gran Coupe, with BMW saying the company’s first i-branded four-door coupe will do the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in approximately four seconds. Previewed by the 2017 i Vision Dynamics concept, this BMW electric car will reach a top speed of more than 124 mph (200 km/h), which is more than you’ll ever need unless you plan on getting to work in record time using the German Autobahn where there are still unrestricted sections.
We also get to find out the i4 will utilize a newly developed battery pack with a capacity of about 80 kWh and a range of approximately 600 kilometers. That works out to 373 miles, but BMW doesn’t specify the test cycle used to obtain this number, although with the press release published on the European version of the company’s website, we tend to believe it's based on WLTP. Translated to EPA’s tougher cycle, it likely results in a lower range between cycles.
BMW reiterates the i4 BMW electric car will make use of the automaker’s fifth-generation eDrive hardware slated to debut next year on the iX3 crossover, which will have the electric motor, transmission, and power electronics all in a single housing. In the case of the i4, charging the 550-kilogram (1,212-pound) battery pack to an 80% level will only take about 35 minutes, which results in 62 miles (100 kilometers) of range for every six minutes of charging.
