2023 BMW i4 Electric Vehicle eDrive40 and M50 Gran Coupe

by Mike Hunter

The latest fifth-generation eDrive technology meets hallmark BMW engineering in a pair of all-electric vehicles primed to change everything about the way we drive. The Gran Coupe influence — a long wheelbase, short overhangs and a flowing roofline — define the exterior of this four-door electric vehicle.

The BMW i4 models offer impressive range — up to 301 miles in the i4 eDrive40 and 270 miles in the i4 M50, when driving under ideal conditions. It’s a single electric motor, rear-wheel drive in the i4 eDrive40 and a dual electric motor, all-wheel drive in the i4 M50.

The BMW i4 Gran Coupe models have regenerative braking, so that power can be recovered from deceleration. Regenerative braking allows more of the electric vehicle’s range to be extended. BMW’s range-increasing technology includes two Energy Recuperation Modes, allowing the driving experience to be tailored exactly as wanted. 

The amount of time required to charge a BMW i4 Gran Coupe varies depending on the power source. Using a 240-volt outlet with the standard Flexible Fast Charger or available BMW Wallbox, the BMW i4 can charge from 0–100% in less than nine hours. Or, with a public DC Fast Charger, just 10 minutes of charging can add 108 miles of range to the i4 eDrive40 or 88 miles to the i4 M50. 

The BMW i4 M50 is an all-wheel-drive electric vehicle with dual electric motors providing power to the four wheels independently. The BMW i4 eDrive40 is a rear-wheel-drive electric vehicle, with the characteristic sporty feel of a BMW Gran Coupe. 

Every BMW electric vehicle comes with premium maintenance services provided by a nationwide dealer network and an eight-year, 100,000-mile battery warranty.
