2021 BMW i4 should arrive in 2021 the average BMW i4 battery sedan, a rival of the Tesla Model 3.
There will also be a sedan in the BMW i family of electric cars. This is confirmed by these spy photos of the InsideEV website, taken at a test sample of the BMW i4 still disguised ( see at the bottom of the news), expected to arrive in 2021 with similar prices and dimensions to the Tesla Model 3.
The 2021 BMW i4 seems to be inspired aesthetically, the 2017 Vision Dynamics prototype, due to the long front bonnet, the roof that slopes gently towards the tail and the side windows that narrow in the area of the rear pillar of the roof, while the mask, as imposing as all the latest BMWs, will leave room for a sort of recess in the band. From these images the body appears less eccentric than the original i3 and i8.
According to rumors, the 2021 BMW i4 will have two versions: one with the front engine and rear-wheel drive, typical architecture for the cars of the German company, and the other with two engines and the 4×4. The basic mechanics of the BMW i4 of 2021 will be very similar to the new generation of the 4 Series, the coupe variant of the 3 Series, because unlike the past the new BMW i will be built on platforms shared with other models and no longer specific: i4 and all future ones will therefore be cheaper and simpler to construct, because the German house will be able to adapt existing production lines and not make new ones. This will also happen for the BMW iX3 suv of 2020, based on the platform of the normal X3.
The choice to ” standardize ” the platforms will also allow the German company to launch several models in a short time: as stated by the number one Harald Krüger will arrive five electric by 2021 and twelve by 2025, including models to battery of the Mini and Rolls Royce. Among these are the renewed utilitarian i3, the iX3, and the iNext flagship, in addition to the electric Mini (we will see it by the end of 2019).
