2022 electric BMW i4 starting price of $ 54,990

BMW will offer two new electric models in 2022, the iX SUV and the i4 sedan, one that aims to offer consumers a major competitor to the Tesla Model 3 and the Polestar 2. BMW Canada has just opened pre-orders for its first sedan electric, the BMW i4 2022.

The BMW i4 eDrive 40, the entry-level model, starts at $ 54,990 before freight and delivery charges. This allows it to be eligible for the provincial rebate for electric vehicles, reducing its final price by $ 8,000. This version of the i4 is not eligible for the federal discount of $ 5,000 because it sells for over $ 45,000.

At that price, you get a near-mid-size luxury sedan, in the flavor of a 4 Series Gran Coupé, powered by a battery with a capacity of 83.9 kilowatt hours (81.5 usable). Powered by a single electric motor mounted on the rear axle, it promises to offer a range of 475 kilometers according to the EPA’s evaluations. Horsepower and torque are rated at 335 horsepower and 317 pound-feet.

BMW i4 M50 2022

Consumers can also opt for a more fierce version, the i4 M50. Powered by the same battery, this version adds a second electric motor mounted on the front axle, making it a 4-wheel drive model. Total combined horsepower climbs to 536 horsepower, and torque climbs to 586 pound-feet. Able to complete the sprint from 0 to 100 km / hour in just 3.9 seconds, the i4 M50 promises a range of 385 km, still according to the projections of the EPA.

BMW i4 2022

The first deliveries of the BMW i4 2022 will take place early next year. By then, RPM will have put the model to the test to give you its impressions.
