BMW I4 To Make Its Indian Debut On 28 April
BMW announced its ambitions for an electric vehicle offensive in India last year. The IX, the brand’s flagship electric SUV, was first introduced, followed by the Mini Electric. BMW is now preparing to unveil the I4, its third electric vehicle for the Indian market. The I4 is the electric variant of the 4-series, which is based on the 3-series. The BMW I4 will make its debut in India on April 28.
The BMW i4 Gran Coupe is a fully electric version of the BMW 4-series Gran Coupe. The i4 has a striking similarity to the 4-series in terms of appearance, with the same towering front grille. The grille of the EV, however, is made of glass. The i4 receives a revised bumper that removes the side air vents and replaces them with a modified diffuser. The headlights are equipped with the same multi-projector setup as the taillights, as well as dual DRLs. The air vents on the sides have been eliminated, and the ORVMs have been redesigned. New 19-inch wheel choices are also available for the i4. The back has the same design as the ICE version, with minor alterations to the bumper. Blue highlights are scattered all over the automobile.
The automobile has a dual-tone dashboard with a single curving piece of glass encasing the 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and the 14.9-inch touchscreen infotainment system on the interior. The center console is made of carbon fiber, and the gear shifter has blue accents. The car also comes with ambient lighting on the dash and doors, as well as a sunroof if that isn’t enough light.
It comes with an 81.5 kWh battery that can propel the automobile up to 480 kilometers. It is propelled by a rear-mounted electric motor with a maximum output of 335 horsepower and torque of 430 Newton meters.
This automobile also comes in an M50 model with the ‘M’ logo, a dynamic rear spoiler, and a twin powertrain that produces 536HP and 795Nm of torque and accelerates it from 0 to 100 in 3.7 seconds. It will be fascinating to watch whether the M50 makes an appearance in India.
