The BMW i4 is in the testing phase, which means there is a lot of spy footage circulating on the internet to understand the upcoming design. The latest photos have revealed a lot more than before, including details of the front grille design.
The front end is partially visible, and while it’s still covered in camouflage material, a lot more can be said about the shape and size of the grille. The BMW i4 will have the same distinctive kidney grille as before with practically the same size as in the previous models.
The headlights are also clearly visible for the first time and have a C-shaped design. The LED daytime running lights and the two projector-beam combinations have been the first choice for BMW in the recent past, and the i4 follows the same pattern.
Unsurprisingly, the rear of the vehicle also shows more than before. The taillights, for example, are more clearly visible and we can decipher their almost final shape. With the camouflage panels peeling off, we can safely say that the release of the BMW i4 is not that far off.
The prototype vehicle is in the final phase of testing and as soon as this is completed, BMW will present the I4 in its final form. It’s expected to be released in late 2021, so expect a full reveal in Spring / Summer 2021.
The BMW i4 is said to be more powerful than some of BMW’s performance cars like the M3 and M4. The i4 will produce 530 horsepower at its peak, which will allow it to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4 seconds or less. The full performance values are possible thanks to the single engine setup and the intuitive aerodynamic technology from BMW.
BMW was very sensitive about the price of the i4, but reckons with around 70,000 US dollars for the basic version.
