After the BMW iX all-electric SUV, the brand is planning to launch a four-door all-electric sedan. BMW India has confirmed the launch of the new i4 Gran Coupe, which is likely to happen in the coming months.
The i4 Gran Coupe was showcased earlier this year. In the international markets, the i4 Gran Coupe is sold in two variants. The lower eDrive 40 variant gets a single-motor setup, mounted on the rear axle, and puts out 335bhp and 430Nm of torque, allowing it to do the 0 – 100km/h dash in 5.7 seconds.
The i4 Gran Coupe is also available in the M50 variant, which is the more athletic of the two. The M50 variant gets a dual-motor setup, which translates into an all-wheel-drive layout. The combined power output of this variant is 536bhp and 795Nm.
Both variants feature an 83.9kWh battery pack. The claimed range for the lower eDrive 40 variants is 590km, whereas the M50 variant has a claimed range of 510km (claimed).
The BMW i4 Gran Coupe M50 is likely to be priced above the BMW iX. The key rivals to the BMW i4 Gran Coupe will be the Audi e-tron GT and Porsche Taycan. However, the lower variant of the BMW i4 Gran Coupe is likely to be priced aggressively, which will position it in a segment of its own.
