“This vehicle will become reality”
“At last year’s Frankfurt motor show, we unveiled our take on the future of e‑mobility with the BMW i Vision Dynamics,” Krüger said. “This vehicle will become reality; we will build it in Munich as the BMW i4.”
The i Vision Dynamics concept was a small sedan similar in size to the 3-Series but with a sleek, coupe-like profile more like what you find on the 4-Series Gran Coupe.
At its unveiling, BMW said the i Vision Dynamics concept could accelerate to 60 mph in 4.0 seconds or less and travel 373 miles on a single charge. The concept was also said to be the first application of the BMW Group’s fifth-generation battery technology, which will start appearing in various plug-in hybrid and electric cars from about 2020.
Before the i4 arrives, the BMW Group will launch an electric Mini hardtop (2019), an electric BMW X3 (2020), and the much-hyped BMW iNext (2021). The i4 is expected to follow around 2022.
