BMW i4 EV Complete Detail – Range, Price and Launching
In 2021, the BMW i4 EV will go into production. BMW’s model will give perfect competition to Tesla Model 3. It will be an electric-only Sedan packed with forward-thinking, based on new technological features. To keep weight in control – it was made with composite materials.
The BMW i4 will be powered by an 80-kilowatt-hour battery, producing about 390 kilowatts, or roughly 530 horsepower. It will take about 4 seconds for accelerating to 62 mph and the i4 will have an electronically limited top speed of 120 mph.
In current EV’s, the company is using generation 3 and generation 4 battery packs which are significantly smaller than the generation 5 battery pack, which is used by BMW’s i4 Model. Y
This allows them to be more easily scaled for smaller or bigger applications and make the cells more easy to be packed in the vehicle’s floor.
The fifth-generation batteries are quite stronger, meaning thereby, can better handle the fast charging situations. According to the BMW, i4 would be able to charge 80% in about 35 minutes with the help of a 150-kW DC fast charger.
From comparing point of view, the current i3 hatchback will take 17 minutes to reach 62 miles of range while i4 will take only 6 minutes to do the same.
The i4 is one of several fully electric vehicles that will use BMW’s fifth-generation technologies. At the beginning of 2021, the BMW i4 will be built in Munich, Germany. And also make its way to other markets from that launch. We expect it to arrive in the US till 2021.
The BMW i4 will be able to run from 0 to 62 mph in about 4 seconds, with an electronically limited topmost speed of 120 mph. An 80-kilowatt-hour, the 1,200-pound battery pack will provide a range of 373 miles on the European WLTP testing cycle, which yields notoriously optimistic figures.
