The BMW Group is opening a new chapter in its history with the unveiling of a pure-electric Gran Coupé.
The BMW Concept i4 takes electric drive to the core of the BMW brand and heralds a new era in sheer driving pleasure.
The BMW Concept i4 represents a look ahead to the BMW i4, slated to enter production in 2021 as the BMW Group’s first all-electric model in the premium midsize class. It provides a whole new take on the dynamic excellence for which BMW is renowned and blends a modern, elegantly sporty design with the spaciousness and functionality of a four-door Gran Coupé – all while generating zero local emissions.
“The BMW Concept i4 brings electrification to the core of the BMW brand,” says Adrian van Hooydonk, Senior Vice President BMW Group Design. “The design is dynamic, clean and elegant. In short: a perfect BMW that happens to be zero emission.” The drivetrain’s standout numbers include a range of 600km, output of up to 390kW, 0 – 100km/h acceleration of approximately 4.0 seconds and a top speed in excess of 200km/h. However, the driving qualities of the BMW Concept i4 cannot be expressed in figures alone. The virtually silent delivery of power creates an entirely new sensation of dynamism.
The design of the BMW Concept i4 shows fantastic proportions, a powerfully expressive character and a lot of attention to detail.
