The BMW i4 electric vehicle was introduced in India today at a price of Rs 69.90 lakh (ex-showroom), putting it in direct competition with the Kia EV 6, which will be released next month. The BMW i4, which is the all-electric version of the standard 4 Series Gran Coupe, will be sold as Completely Built Units in the United States. To put it another way, this, like the Kia EV 6, will be imported.

The BMW i4 is the company’s first entirely electric vehicle, with a focus on driving dynamics. The BMW i4 is available for reservation at shop.bmw.in. Deliveries will begin in early July 2022, according to the business.

The BMW i4 is available in three colours

Mineral White, Black Sapphire, and Skyscraper Grey are the three colour options for the electric vehicle in India. Canberra Beige and Cognac colour palettes are available in perforated Sensatec upholstery.

A lengthy wheelbase, frameless windows, and lightweight aerodynamic wheels add to the vehicle’s driving range from the side. Air suspension on the rear axle with automated self-leveling delivers optimal comfort and stability in abrupt corners.

The back seat can accommodate up to three passengers and offers plenty of head and leg room. In the automobile, there is ambient lighting with six different light styles to choose from. Air quality is improved with three-zone automated climate control and a nanofiber filter.

Loading and unloading from the 470-litre baggage compartment is a breeze thanks to the wide tailgate with automated opening mechanism. Furthermore, the rear bench seat folds down with a 40/20/40 split to maximise storage space and expand cargo capacity to 1290 litres.

The battery and range of the BMW i4

An electric motor, a single-speed transmission, and power electronics power the BMW i4. With a 340-horsepower engine, the i4 sprints from 0 to 100 km/hr in 5.7 seconds. The ultra-thin (110 mm) and high-voltage lithium-ion battery integrated in the floor makes its premiere, with a capacity of 80.7 kWh and a range of up to 590 kilometres. According to BMW, the i4 has the longest range of any electric vehicle in India.

The charging time is as follows:
