BMW i4For a couple of days in early Spring, the doors to BMW ''s Designworks subsidiary have been thrown open out of hours to give North America an early preview of the new BMW Concept i4. This car is the latest in a long line of conceptual visions that are intended to distil the German company ''s future thinking into physical form. It ''s also substantially production ready, with a 2021 on sale date mooted for a car that could be the most important BMW of the modern age.
The BMW i3 has been on our roads since 2013, but despite its popularity, an all electric powertrain is still yet to make it to any other model from the brand. This is set to change in 2021, with the i4 four door coupe entering production to rival the likes of the Tesla Model 3 and Porsche Taycan 4S.

By 2023, BMW is planning to launch as many as 12 new fully electric models as part of its ambitious electrification strategy. These will include electric variants of existing models, including the iX3 SUV based on the BMW X3 and the BMW i4 based on the 4 Series Gran Coupe. Rumors have also suggested electric versions of the 5 Series and 7 Series are coming. And now it looks like BMW is preparing a fully electric version of the 3 Series to take on the Tesla Model 3.BMW hasn #39;t officially announced an electric 3 Series yet, but our spies have caught a camouflaged 3 Series wearing some "Electric Test Vehicle " stickers, suggesting that development of said vehicle is well underway.
Revealed last May and first shown to the public last month at Frankfurt, the all new 2020 BMW 1 Series hatchback is a departure from past 1 Series models for one main reason: it #39;s built on an all new front wheel drive platform with optimal all wheel drive. While the hatchback won #39;t be coming to the US, its soon to debut corporate cousin will: the first ever 2 Series Gran Coupe. Americans prefer four door coupes over hatchbacks, which is nothing new. This shared flexible architecture, however, also allows for electrification and that #39;s exactly what #39;s about to happen.According to the UK #39;s Auto Express, BMW i Division boss Robert Irlinger has revealed plans for an entry level electric hatchback based on the 1 Series that could debut as soon as 2021, the same year the first battery powered BMWs will debut, specifically the iX3, i4 sedan, and iNext SUV.

After being put through its paces in the snow during winter testing, a BMW i4 prototype has been spotted roaming the streets of Munich. Luckily, our spy photographers were on hand to snap some photos of BMW s upcoming Tesla Model 3 rival. And this time, they managed to get a peek inside the cabin for the first time.On the outside, the exterior is still covered in camouflage, but it s clear that the i4 will look a lot like the 4 Series Gran Coupe. That s not necessarily a bad thing, as the 4 Series Gran Coupe is arguably one of the best looking cars BMW currently sells. The 4 door coupe body style is also very popular since it blends stylish looks with practicality, so the i4 has the potential to be a huge hit for BMW. There are still some differences, though, as the front incorporates the automaker #39;s new kidney grille specific to electric BMW i models.
The test prototype of the BMW i4 (based on the BMW i Vision Dynamics concept and schedule for 2021) was recently seen for the first time.
January 25, 2019It seems just about every European automaker is readying a Tesla Model 3 fighter at the moment, and BMW is no exception. Tipped to be badged as the i4, the Bavarian Tesla Model 3 has been spotted with heavy camouflage in recent days, about a year and a half after an electric sedan was previewed at the 2017 Frankfurt motor show in the guise of the i Vision Dynamics concept.

BMW has confirmed that it will be releasing a number of new electric cars over the next few years.
So when the BMW i Vision Dynamics Concept emerged onto the auto show circuit last fall, it seemed obvious it previewed a future production model.Especially since, as many observers noted, it seemed to be sized to compete directly against the Tesla Model 3.
The i models were interesting entries in the BMW lineup, but the i3 and i8 were both strange in their own ways. The i3 looked a bit odd and the i8 was too expensive for most people. What the i Division needs is a conventional model to appeal to average car buyers. BMW has previewed the i Vision Dynamics Concept, which will evolve to be the next i model. We knew the i Vision Dynamics would eventually enter production, but we did not know what its production name would be. At BMW's 2018 Geneva Motor Show press conference, we finally found out. Almost as if it wasn't even important to note, BMW CEO Harald Kruger used the name i4 when describing BMW's electric future. Kruger said 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 i Vision Dynamics. This vehicle will become reality: we will build it in Munich as the BMW i4. This was a huge piece of news to reveal so casually at the end of a press statement. This name may not be set in stone, but for now we can expect the next BMW i model to be called the i4, not the i5 as we previously expected.
BMW has confirmed that it will produce an i4 to sit above the i3 hatchback in its growing 'i' range of electric cars.During the company's press conference at the Geneva motor show, chairman Harald Kr ger said the model, which is expected to arrive close to the upcoming iX3 electric SUV in the early part of the next decade, will be built in Munich.
