Video: BMW & Nbsp; Revealed & Nbsp; Characteristics Of Electric Sedan I4
Almost a year after the publication of the first spy shots of the i4 sedan, BMW has shown official photographs of a camouflaged, pre-production prototype that is being tested at the proving ground in Arjeplog, Sweden. Along with this, the Germans talked about the characteristics of the novelty.
- BMW i4 will receive four-wheel drive, implemented using two electric motors (one at the front and one at the rear). The total power is 530 horsepower. Acceleration time to "hundreds" will take about four seconds, and the maximum speed will exceed 200 km / h.
The traction battery weighing 550 kilograms and a capacity of 80 kWh will provide a power reserve of 600 kilometers. Using a 150 kW station, charging up to 80 percent should take 35 minutes. At the same time, six minutes will be enough to increase the stock by 100 kilometers.
- Each i4 electric motor is assembled as a single unit with transmission and electronics. These assemblies, in turn, are part of the body structure.
Series production of the BMW i4 will begin in 2021. The electric model will be assembled at the company's headquarters in Munich, where the BMW 3 and 4 Series are produced.
