BMW's fifth-generation eDrive technology features a new electric motor, power electronics, charging unit and a more compact high-voltage battery pack than previous generations, thanks to a flat cell design. It is the same technology that will be used before the launch of the i4 on the iX3 (2020) and iNEXT (2021).
In the i4, the electric motor should be good for a total output of 530 hp, on par with some present-day V8 engines the carmaker uses in its cars. In June, BMW announced it intends to have 25 electrified vehicles in its lineup by 2023, two years sooner than originally planned.
A new generation of batteries will power the Model 3 competitor.. BMW reckons that the combo will team up to offer around 373 miles (600 km) of range, an impressive Model S-matching figure, though we assume BMW is deriving it from the generous WLTP standard.

This abundance of power will enable the i4 to accelerate from 0-62 miles per hour (0-100 km/h) in approximately four seconds flat and hit a top speed in excess of 125 miles per hour (200 km/h).
The specs here aren't really new, as they're the same numbers that were attached to the 2017 i Vision Dynamics, an early i4 preview. If you only have time for a quick stop, a six minute charge can deliver around 62 miles (100 km) of range.
Something to look forward to: The EV market is gaining more entrants by the minute, and BMW's i4 is just one of the three cars that the automaker plans to introduce in the near future.
BMW will build the i4 at its main Munich plant, where it also builds current 3 and 4 Series models.
