Today, March 6, at the Geneva Auto Show, BMW confirmed that the BMW i4, its next electric vehicle, will be coming. It will be built in Munich based on the carmaker’s iVision Dynamics concept.
The previous model, the BMW i3, was released in 2013. The German brand has noticeably increased the gap (5 to 6 years) between the release of its all-electric vehicles.
Its next model will be an electric Mini in 2019. After this, an electric version of the BMW X3 will come, likely by 2020. There will as well be an iNext vehicle to be released in 2021 that BMW revealed as a competitor to Tesla Model 3. As for the BMW i4, the iVision Dynamics concept was introduced at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 2017.
By 2025, our global vehicle portfolio will include 25 fully- or part-electric models. At last year’s Frankfurt Motor Show, we unveiled our take on the future of e‑mobility with the BMW iVision Dynamics. This vehicle will become reality: we will build it in Munich – as the BMW i4. – Harald Kruger, CEO at BMW
The concept includes specs such as 600 km or 373 miles range, top speed of more than 124 mph or 200 km/h, and 0-62 mph or 0-100 km/h in four seconds. According to NEDC (New European Driving Cycle), the range could be around 300 miles EPA.
Stay tuned for further updates on electric car introductions and BMW’s projects.
