BMW has started delivering i4 electric cars to customers Podcast

In Germany, the very first 2022 BMW i4 electric vehicles were delivered to buyers at the BMW Welt in Munich.

At an event held at BMW‘s headquarters today, the company revealed that the first BMW i4 EVs were delivered to consumers. It represents the official expansion of the BMW lineup of EVs, which has been stagnant for almost ten years.

When BMW first introduced the i3 in 2013, we thought the i4 and later the i5 would follow and that the famous German automaker would expand its EV lineup. Subsequently, It turned out that it was not so straightforward, and the release of new all-electric vehicles took them around 8 years.

With the BMW iX3, i4 and iNext now available on the market, this expansion is finally complete.

BMW organized an event today at its Munich headquarters to hand over the first BMW i4 to buyers.

Bernhard Kuhnt, CEO and President of the BMW Group, made a comment on the event:

It is a very special moment for us when we hand over brand new models to customers for the first time. The BMW i4 shows in an emotional way how well fully-electric mobility and sporty driving dynamics fit together. For us, it is therefore clear: the BMW i4 will offer our customers a whole new dimension of driving pleasure.

Stefan Ballin, the proprietor of an electrical contracting firm, was one of the first BMW i4 buyers to get his vehicle. BMW shared his comment:

It wasn’t possible, at the time I placed the order, to take a test drive, but I knew the BMW i4 was exactly the right automobile for me! I was impressed by the concept, the symbiosis of range, elegant design, and unmistakable BMW sportiness. I also wanted a car that would show how we, as an innovative firm, can comfortably integrate electromobility into both our private and working environments. I’m also looking forward to sporty driving pleasure with zero emissions in the i4 because the electricity I need to run it will come from our own photovoltaic system.

The BMW i4 comes in a variety of versions, each with an 83.9 kWh battery pack that, according to BMW, provides a range of up to 590 kilometers (WLTP) as well as a range of up to 300 miles (EPA).

It features a dual-motor powertrain with an output power of up to 390kW/530Hp, allowing it to accelerate from Zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in about 4 seconds. There will also be a single motor choice.

A high DC fast charging capacity of 205 kilowatts is also available on the automobile.

When it goes on sale next year, BMW claims the i4 will start at $56,395 in the US.
