An updated version of the Bavarian BMW 4 Series coupe may debut in June – the presentation is likely to take place online. The machine will not be presented “live” because of the coronavirus pandemic.

BMWBLOG reports that the next generation 4 Series Coupe will be unveiled sometime in June, and obviously not at the Detroit Auto Show – the event was canceled due to coronavirus. The car will be shown online. Spy shots showed that the 4 Series Convertible will also be introduced – this time with a soft top.

 Interestingly, our insiders say that there may be some changes in the interior of the new BMW 4 Series Coupe compared to the 3 Series sedan / station wagon.

This would be rather unexpected, given that almost all of the prototypes of the 4 Series that we have seen so far have had almost the same interior as the 3 Series mechanically connected to it.

Such a version of the novelty can get the same hybrid power unit, which is located under the hood of the 330e version, where the lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 12 kWh allows you to drive 35 kilometers in electric mode for a model with rear-wheel drive and 32 kilometers for a version equipped with a full-system xDrive.

The electrified BMW 330e is equipped with a 2.01-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with an output of 181 horsepower (350 Nm), which works with an 8-speed automatic transmission, as well as an 107 hp electric motor. (104 Nm). The total power is 288 hp (420 Nm), plus the ability to use an additional 40 hp for a short time. (30 kW).
