BMW has revealed another model in its all-electric “i” series, with the 2022 BMW i4 promising zero-emissions without sacrificing the driving dynamics the automaker has built its brand on. The next-generation of “The Ultimate Driving Machine” will ditch the gas or diesel engine for a fully-electric drivetrain. That means up to 390 kW / 530 horsepower, BMW says.
It’ll be enough for a 0-62 mph time of around 4 seconds, or so BMW expects. Meanwhile, range is predicted for 300 miles on the US EPA cycle, or 590 km on the WLTP cycle. There’ll be different configurations mixing different battery capacities and potency, and BMW has already confirmed there’ll be an M Performance version too.
Outside, it’s a 4-door Gran Coupé body style, with the automaker’s current huge grille giving it an aggressive look at the front. Blue trim helps flag that this is an EV, while inside we’ll see the new iDrive 8 infotainment system. Sales will kick off in 2021.
