The BMW i4 will boast Bimmer’s Gran Coupe design, meaning it’ll have four doors but will feature a sleek coupe-like roofline. Adding to its sporty look will be short overhangs, slim pillars, and frameless windows, while its largely closed-off signature kidney grille ties it into the rest of the lineup. The more performance-oriented i4 M50 sports other styling easter eggs including a U-shaped-design bumper from the M models, brake-cooling intakes, Cerium Grey accents, an M-specific spoiler, and more.
Inside, the i4 will boast a driver-focused cabin with a very slim and low instrument panel, 12.3-inch information display, 14.9-inch control display, sport seats and steering wheel, knee pads, premium materials, blue accents, and more. On the tech side of things, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay will come standard.
Under its hood, the i4 will come in two flavors: eDrive40 and M50. The i4 eDrive40 will feature a single rear motor that will deliver 335 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque. This will launch the i4 to 60 mph in 5.5 seconds, while its 81.5-kWh battery will deliver up to an estimated 300-mile range.
The M50 variant will combine a 255-hp front motor and a 308-hp rear motor for a total of 536 hp and 586 lb-ft of torque heading through all four wheels. This will shoot the i4 M50 to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds, but the range will drop to just 245 miles.
The 2022 BMW i4 will come standard with a full assortment of safety features, including forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, rear cross-traffic alert with collision prevention, and more.
