BMW i4 electric car undergoes final testsJanuary 23, 2021
The Bavarian automaker is preparing a resounding premiere of its debut electric car with “sporty DNA” – the BMW i4. In anticipation of this long-awaited event, the Germans unveiled a video of the final tests of the battery novelty.
The electric car was driven by i4 project manager David Alfredo Ferrufino Camacho. He personally made sure that the steering worked smoothly and that the chassis settings were correct. Along the way, he experienced the promised comfort from driving an electric car.
Particular praise was given to the ease of the steering wheel: if you wish, you can go into the drift, holding it with only two fingers. Shock absorbers and a rigid body are responsible for a minimum of noise and vibration inside the car. They will cope with their task even on difficult-to-drive roads.
The novelty gets a 530-strong power unit. With it, the BMW i4 will accelerate to a hundred in just 4 seconds. The concept of the same name spent the same amount of time on this exercise. What modification can boast such a powerful engine has not yet been reported.
First, the Germans will offer customers a rear-wheel drive modification of the i440 and the more powerful M50 xDrive.
A budget version of the i435 electric sedan will hit the market later. A “hot” modification with the prefix “M” in the title is also planned for release. Her debut may take place at the end of 2021. Without recharging, the BWM i4 will cover about 600 kilometers.
In the meantime, a new BMW 2-Series Coupe was spotted during test trials. We are talking about the 2022 model year car, more precisely about its charged modification M Performance. Even the approximate timing of the car’s release is still unknown.
