The Electric Revolution Comes To BMW’s Sport Sedans


Now, BMW seems to be taking the same approach to the electric car game as most other automakers: make more normal cars. The next generation of i cars will be the BMW iX crossover and this sedan, and both look and perform pretty close to a regular BMW. They just happen to not use any petroleum. 

So far, beyond power output and estimated range, details about the BMW i4 are pretty scant. The automaker says “its refined balance of BMW typical sportiness, comfort and sustainable performance are unique in its segment,” and that if those things aren’t enough for you, an M Performance model is coming too.

We do know it’s heavily related to the next-generation 4 Series Gran Coupe, so if you like this design, it should have a more conventional cousin if that’s your jam. The wheels, blue accents and other details are unique to this design, and for some reason, that new BMW grille looks less egregious in electric form. I’m not quite sure why, but it works better here somehow.

Expect more details, including interior, pricing and powertrain information in the coming weeks. For now, this and the iX are a good indication of where BMW intends to go next with electrification, and both seem a lot more likely to end up in your average luxury buyer’s driveway than an i8.
