The BMW i4 has been in development for quite some time now. The car is scheduled to be launched next year, along with the iX crossover.

The BMW i4 is rumored to come with over 500 HP and the latest BMW battery technology, allowing it to cover up to 600 km with a single charge. There will be different battery and power output choices, and we can’t wait to see it come to life next year.
