“With the launch of the BMW i4, I am excited to introduce the first electric mid-size sedan in the country. BMW i4 effortlessly combines sheer driving pleasure with sustainability as never experienced before. Thanks to its unique combination of BMW eDrive technology, extremely slim and high-voltage lithium-ion battery, rear-wheel drive, and advanced suspension kinematics, the BMW i4 gets an outstanding sporty feel. It is India’s longest-range electric vehicle. Absolute luxury with class-leading ambience, generous space, and rear axle air suspension ensures maximum comfort even for longer trips. Excitingly dynamic, comfortable, and powerful in equal measure, the BMW i4 provides a truly electrifying experience that exceeds all expectations – every day, every trip. BMW Group today offers the most extensive and diverse portfolio of electric cars for Indian customers,” as commented by Vikram Pawah, President, BMW Group India.

The cabin of the BMW i4 retains the layout and dashboard of the regular 4 Series coupe. However, it misses a few features like a free centre console area. Furthermore, the electric sedan features a curved twin-screen setup that houses a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a 14.9-inch touchscreen infotainment system. In addition, the vehicle gets the latest BMW’s latest iDrive 8 user interface that supports over-the-air updates and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay functionality.
