Introducing the first purely electric BMW Gran Coupé – the BMW Concept i4. Equipped with fifth generation BMW eDrive technology, the BMW Concept i4 offers an outstanding range of up to 372 miles. To make this concept even more exciting, the elegant design and modern aesthetics are a certain preview of the BMW i4 – the first purely electric series production model in the BMW premium midsize segment, which is due to enter production in 2021.
The new BMW Concept i4 has a subtle yet impactful presence thanks to clear surface design, a fastback-style roofline and the gently sculptured form, which are complemented by the modern Frozen Light Copper exterior finish. Adding to this are blue elements at the front, side and rear, which is a nod to its BMW i origins. Inside, the light and airy design, which is accentuated by a full-length Panoramic glass roof, creates a relaxed feel – a perfect ambience for the electric drive experience.
The BMW Concept i4 is loaded with design elements to catch your eye. Instantly noticeable is the large closed-off double kidney grille and two freestanding LED elements on either side. From the rear, slim L-shaped rear lights continue the theme to create a refined look, while exclusively styled wheels offer enhanced aerodynamics and a stylish side profile. Stepping inside, the Curved Display and the toggle-type shifter for gear selection are standout features that have been beautifully crafted to complement the chic decor.
The BMW Concept i4 is not only characterised by its individual design, but also by its own unique sound – known as BMW IconicSounds Electric. Developed by world renowned composer Hans Zimmer together with BMW Sound Designer Renzo Vitale, BMW IconicSounds Electric aims to emotionalise BMW's electric vehicles.
Here you can experience the e-sounds of the BMW Concept i4, ranging from the driving sounds in "Core" mode to the more intense and pronounced sounds of "Sport" mode. Also included are the sounds of the door opening and the starting scenario as the vehicle sets off.
Series production of the new BMW i4 will begin in 2021 at the BMW Group’s main plant in Munich.
