Precision, benchmark handling
Up to 600 km electric range
User-friendly for the long haul
From its funky little i3 to the wildly styled i8, BMW has blazed an innovative trail with its electrified vehicles. Now, it’s poised to challenge rivals the likes of Tesla Model 3 and the Audi e-tron GT with the new i4. A more style-conscious alternative to the popular American EV, this low-slung four-door heralds a new era for the brand. Boasting up to 600 km of electric range and a full complement of high-tech equipment, the innovative BMW i4 sets new standards in user-friendliness and long-distance suitability.
Fastback sedan sets new benchmarks
Bimmer’s i4 all-electric fastback sedan features a flowing coupe-style roofline and a throwback, ‘ducktail’ style boot lid. The refined lines and large aero-efficient alloy wheels give the car a sporty, elegant appearance. Inside, the minimalist cockpit is completely focused on the driver with a large curved display that houses both the digital instrument cluster and infotainment screen. A continuous glass panoramic roof makes the most of the serene tranquility of the drive, denoted only by a visionary electric-sound signature composed by Hans Zimmer.
A perfectly balanced electric ride
The new i4 uses BMW’s lighter, more compact, ‘fifth-generation’ eDrive powertrain, for greater efficiency and sleeker packaging. No rare earth materials are used to construct its 523-horsepower electric motor and its 80.0-kWh capacity battery pack uses two-thirds less cobalt than before. Designed to mirror the power of a V8 engine, it can still hit 0-100 km/h in four seconds. Fine-tuning ensures precisely controllable handling in every situation, with exceptional cornering dynamics and optimised traction in all weather and road conditions. In other words, BMW’s new i4 is a high-performing, exceptionally efficient, super-green machine.
What is a full electrical vehicle? An electric vehicle, also called an EV, uses one or more electric motors or traction motors for propulsion. The energy used for driving an EV is stored in the battery and the battery is charged at a charge station (at home, at the office or in public).What do I need to charge my electric vehicle? To charge your electric vehicle, you will require a recharging station, a charging cable, and a charging card.How many kilometres can I drive on a fully charged battery? A fully charged battery with a capacity of 40 kW will enable you to drive 200 to 250 kilometers. If you drive sensibly, you will achieve even more. Speed has the most effect on the amount of power drawn down from your battery, so you are advised to keep to the permitted speed limits.
There are also other factors that may have an effect on your driving range:
- High or low temperatures (resulting in continuous operation of the air conditioning/heating)
- A (too) sporty driving style
- Driving with a strong headwind
- A fully loaded car
- Driving uphill for a long period of time
Does an electric vehicle require different maintenance than a vehicle with petrol or diesel? An electric vehicle requires less maintenance. This is due to the engine's reduced number of moving parts compared to a conventional combustion motor, which therefore leads to reduced wear. Moreover, oil changes are a thing of the past and the vehicle does not have an exhaust or gears. In addition, the brakes are less susceptible to wear thanks to the regenerative braking capacity.How safe are electric vehicles? Electric vehicles are approved for all safety factors, just like conventional vehicles. In the event of a collision, there is a possibility that some parts may receive an active charge or that short-circuiting causes an electrical fire, though the safety precautions and construction have limited this risk to an absolute minimum.How long will it take to charge my vehicle? That depends on a number of factors: the type of vehicle, the power left in the battery, how fast your vehicle charges, and which type of recharging station you will be using. When charging your vehicle with a standard power socket, approximately 10 hours is required. This is approximately 2 to 4 hours when using a public recharging terminal. When using a fast-charger (primarily located along highways), your battery will reach 80% charge in 30 minutes. Do keep in mind that using fast-chargers is more expensive than standard recharging stations.What does it cost to charge an electric vehicle? This depends on where you will be charging your vehicle. Home recharging stations are the most economical in most situations. The average electric vehicle uses 15 to 20 kWh per 100 km. If your home electricity rate is €0.25 and you drive an average of 15,000 km per year, your charging costs will range between €563 and €750 per year. When charging away from home, your rate is determined by the recharging terminal provider. A starting fee and incentive rate are often charged in addition to the kWh charge.
