Fire freely in the new BMW i4 M50 with 795 Newton meters of torque and 544 PS! Right foot down means: forward! And properly. Tempo 100 in under four (!) seconds the 2.3 ton four-door car runs into the invisible (electronically regulated) 225 km / h wall. Also excellent: The car is extremely quiet, only at speeds over 200 km / h does the wind really rustle around the pillars. At most, a basic rumble from the wheel arches proves that there are 255 mm tires rolling in 20-inch format.
BMW has a specially designed for the i4 M50 special sound experience created. In sport mode, for example, the sound broadcast via the loudspeakers accompanies the movements of the accelerator pedal in a particularly full-bodied and grumpy manner – even during load changes or when coasting. A potent combustion engine could hardly be more present. the The power development of the two electric motors is typical for an electric car and befitting a BMW: absolutely seamless, pleasantly close, directly connected to the accelerator pedal, bestial if desired, and depending on the feeling in the right foot, can also be adjusted gently and finely. The i4 is primarily on the road with rear-wheel drive. Only a stronger pull on the chain causes the electronics to manage the forces in a more diverse way.
As a result, the BMW i4 first-class bond with the road – always, everywhere and steadfast. Still, he doesn’t do his job perfectly. The driving experience feels exciting, but also always artificial. The steering should reset more fully, the car should run over ruts less frightened, and sometimes be able to be directed with fingertips. Narrow streets, winding course, bumpy surface – then please keep tension.
Conclusion by Jan Horn: The BMW i4 M50 is not the precise racing machine despite its 544 hp. More like the massive bolide with fine travel qualities. BMW has also designed the electrical part excellently, but slightly exaggerated the operating concept.
Equipment: Sports seats and the matching steering wheel are standard in the BMW i4
The BMW i4 is designed to combine sportiness and comfort, accordingly acoustic glazing, sports seats and sports steering wheel are standard equipment. As is typical for an electric car, the vehicle can also be heated before the journey or cooled down using the air conditioning system. Seat heating and ventilation are unfortunately also subject to a surcharge, as is the glass sunroof or laser light. There are various optional measures to make the car appear sportier, such as an M carbon exterior package or M Performance Parts. Under the Assistance systems A front collision warning system, traffic sign recognition, a lane departure warning system and parking beeper as well as a reversing camera are standard on board – around 40 in total. Semi-autonomous driving is also possible for a surcharge. This happens in the interaction of various electronic helpers – this includes the active cruise control and the steering and lane guidance assistant.
