BMW has officially unveiled the Concept i4 prototype, a concept forerunner of a production electric car that will compete for buyers, for example, with the TeslModel 3. The concept car was shown at a special event in Munich, although it was originally planned that the i4 would debut at the Geneva Motor Show, but the exhibition was canceled in due to the ban of the Swiss authorities on holding mass events due to the coronavirus.

  • Since the prototype is equipped with a fully electric power plant, it does not have the usual grille. Instead, the concept car was equipped with two large "nostrils" in which "various sensors and sensors" are built. Probably, we are talking about the devices required for the autonomous control system. However, BMW did not say anything about what level of autopilot is on the i4 and whether there is one at all.

  • Together with the i4, BMW also showed a new version of its own logo. The automaker described the emblem as "transparent and two-dimensional." The novelty differs from the logo used now by the absence of a black edging on which “BMW” is written.
  • The BMW i4 is equipped with a fully digital dashboard and a huge multimedia system screen, which are assembled as a single module. The design of the displays may vary depending on the selected driving mode. Plus, there are almost no physical buttons in the interior of the prototype: even the air conditioning system is controlled via a touch screen.
  • The soundtrack for the i4 was developed by BMW in collaboration with German composer Hans Zimmer, the author of soundtracks for such films as Gladiator, Inception and The Dark Knight. The sounds emitted by the car, as well as the design of the screens in the cabin, will change depending on the selected operating mode of the control electronics. For the prototype, they also came up with a special soundtrack that is played when the door is opened and the power plant starts up.

  • As previously reported, the production BMW i4 will receive two electric motors (one on each axle) with a total capacity of 530 horsepower. The electric car will accelerate from zero to one hundred kilometers per hour in about four seconds, and its maximum speed will exceed 200 kilometers per hour.
  • The model will be equipped with a battery with a capacity of 80 kilowatt-hours. The power reserve of the BMW i4 is 600 kilometers. With the powerful charging station, the battery can be charged to 80 percent in just 35 minutes.
  • Series production of the i4 will begin at BMW's Munich plant in 2021.
