BMW i4 - A Sleek EV With Exciting Performance

If you like performance, style and a great electric range, look no further than the BMW i4. Its primary competitors are the Tesla Model 3, Volkswagen ID.5 and the Hyundai IONIQ 6. With competitors like these and BMW’s attention to detail, this vehicle clearly holds its own in the electric coupe market. But what makes it special?

One of our Account Managers, Megan, takes the BMW i4 M50 for a spin:

Introducing the BMW i4

Hosting the same driving appeal of the classic BMW 4 Series, in an all-electric form, the i4 comes in 3 trims that increase in price and specification respectively:

  • eDriver35 Sport

  • eDriver35 M Sport

  • M50

BMW provide plenty of power in the performance of this vehicle. The top-spec M50 model has an acceleration of 3.9 seconds (0-60mph) and a top speed of 140mph. With great suspicion and grip, this car ensures a fun performance

The i4 has an excellent rapid charge time of 30 minutes (10%-80%) and a standard (22kW) charge time of 8 hours. However, with an impressive official range (WLTP) of 365 miles, you won’t run out of charge during daily journeys. Read more about why electric range isn't always important.

This compact gran coupe has 5 doors, yet still possesses a sporty and elegant design that stands out. The i4 comes with 12 colour options including ‘Aventurin red metallic’ and ‘Portimao’ blue metallic; the number of colour options varies between each trim level. With the option of up to 20” alloy wheels on the M50 model, this smaller EV can still have a huge road presence. If you want something larger, why not check out the Electric BMW iX1 SUV.


There is still plenty of leg and headroom within the cabin for the driver and passengers, making it an enjoyable ride for those longer journeys. The car also has a modest 470 litres of boot space, more than the Polestar 2.

This is BMW’s first vehicle to use the infotainment and connectivity software called iDrive 8. The system operates with a 14.9-inch touchscreen display that hosts a 12.3-inch infotainment panel.

The high-resolution infotainment and digital dash displays are fast acting and reliable. The vehicle has no issues in instantly connecting to your mobile via Apple Carplay or Android Auto. You can even set up your Apple or Google Maps app to be used in the digital dash HUD, allowing the driver to concentrate more on the road than looking for the map on the infotainment screen. Additionally, the i4 has a wireless phone charger built in and, of course, usability with the My BMW App.

BMW i4 InteriorBMW provide their Driving Assistance Professional Package with this vehicle. This includes lane keep assist, rearview camera, cruise control and much more. These features are accessed via the infotainment screen, similar to the Tesla Model Y, rather than buttons. The i4 also includes a holographic heads-up display (HUD) on the dash which includes traffic sign recognition, speed limit recognition and your current speed to stop you from getting caught out!
