BMW is very close to showing the world its new all-electric sedan. The German automaker shared an interesting animation to show a glimpse of the new car. We should see the real thing next month at the Geneva Auto Show.
It was never clear why it took so long for us to see the i4. BMW launched its first all-electric vehicle, the i3, in 2013. That was a hiatus of 7 years. We had the i8 in 2014, but the sports car was not fully electric. The BMW iX3, on the other hand, is planned to go on to sale by 2021.
The i4 will be an all-electric 4 door sedan Gran Coupe, and it might use BMW’s 5th generation electric powertrain.
Check BMW’s press release and the teaser out:
“The BMW Concept i4 heralds a new era in Sheer Driving Pleasure; 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 practicality of a four-door Gran Coupe – all while generating zero local emissions.”
