After the launch of the all-electric iX SUV, BMW India have now revealed the i4 all-electric sedan. The BMW i4 will launch on May 26, 2022. BMW India are likely to offer the i4 sedan with two drivetrain options – eDrive 40 and M50.

In terms of design, the BMW i4 sedan is very similar to the ICE-powered 4 Series. It gets a large kidney grille up front and a tapering roofline above the frameless doors. In the i4, however, the kidney grille is enclosed and gets a unique pattern. The alloy wheels are optimised for better aerodynamics and range. For easy differentiation between the i4 and the 4 Series, BMW have used a generous amount of blue inserts all around the electric sedan.

As we stated earlier, BMW plan to offer the i4 sedan with two drivetrain options – eDrive 40 with a single motor and M50 with dual motors. Both the eDrive 40 and M50 make use of an 80.7kWh battery pack. The eDrive 40 gets a rear-mounted motor, belting out 340PS of power and 430Nm of torque. The M50, on the other hand, uses dual electric motors and puts out 545PS of power and 795Nm of torque. The eDrive 40 offers a claimed range of 590km whereas the M50 is not far behind, with a claimed range of 521km on a single charge. The i4 sedan can be juiced up from 0-100% in 8.5 hours with an 11kW AC charger. With a 205kW DC fast charger, the i4 can gain up to 164km of range in just 10 minutes of charge.
