The Car Guide rating 80%(view ratings)
Previous attempts at electrifying its lineup with unorthodox vehicles (i3, i8) turned out to be marginally successful, so BMW is now focusing on more conventionally styled EVs. Built on the CLAR architecture, the i4 is very similar to the gas-only 4 Series Gran Coupe. Four different powertrain options are available, ranging from 281-469 horsepower and 412-494 km of zero-emission driving. In addition to lively acceleration, the i4 is known for its premier handling characteristics.
