With a design based on the recently updated 4 Series Gran Coupe, the i4 is BMW’s next-generation electric four door but with some key differences. The i4’s signature BMW kidney grille is actually a closed surface since the EV motor requires scant airflow up front for cooling. Instead, the front camera as well as ultrasonic and radar sensors get integrated into the space. Built on a new modular, scalable architecture offering versatility and efficiency, the i4 draws power from BMW’s fifth-generation eDrive system, which encompasses the electric motors, power electronics, charging system and high-voltage battery. The i4 eDrive40 is rear-wheel drive with a single electric motor delivering 335 horsepower (a more powerful dual motor eDrive50 is also available).
