Three Compelling Drivetrains: the All-Electric BMW i4 at Paul Miller BMW

Finally - an electric vehicle for those that love driving. The BMW i4 blends the most modern technology with a smooth, silent, and powerful electric drivetrain and the BMW handling prowess you've come to expect. But which one is right for you? With three distinct options - the i4 eDrive35, i4 eDrive40, and i4 M50 - it can be tough to figure out the best choice. Paul Miller BMW is here to help by closely examining what makes each version of the i4 special. If you still can't decide or need some additional guidance, call or stop by the dealership today.

The i4 eDrive35

The i4 eDrive35 receives a high-voltage battery with 70.2 kWh of energy capacity. It uses a single electric motor that powers the rear wheels with 282 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque and can attain a zero to 60 mph time of just 5.8 seconds. Adjustable power outputs, thanks to configurable driving modes like SPORT and ECO PRO, allow drivers to personalize the response of their i4 eDrive35 to their liking.

When equipped with 18-inch wheels - standard on the i4 eDrive35 - it offers an impressive estimated 260 miles of range on a single charge. It offers regenerative braking - so it can recharge on the go - and can also replenish its energy reserves via standard AC or DC fast charging. In ten minutes of DC charging, the i4 eDrive35 can add 93 miles of range, making it perfect for the BMW EV shopper that has places to go.

The i4 eDrive40

The i4 eDrive40 is the next step up from the i4 eDrive35 and offers a high-voltage battery with 83.9 kWh of gross energy capacity. It provides drivers 335 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque, completing the sprint from zero to 60 mph in a quick 5.5 seconds. The i4 eDrive40 comes with rear-wheel drive only and uses a single all-electric motor to propel itself.

The i4 eDrive40 offers an impressive range of 301 miles when equipped with the standard 18-inch aerodynamic alloy wheels, according to the EPA. Regenerative braking allows you to stop less often to recharge, and the i4 eDrive40 can also charge up via AC or DC fast charging. In ten minutes of charging on a DC fast charging outlet, the i4 eDrive40 can add 108 miles of range. That means less time spent charging and more time spent driving.

The i4 M50

The i4 M50 is currently the range-topping version of the electric BMW i4. Like the i4 eDrive40, it offers an 83.9 kWh battery - but the similarities end there. The i4 M50 is available only with all-wheel drive and features two electric motors, each responsible for powering the rear and front wheels. With a combined output of 536 horsepower and 586 pound-feet of torque, the i4 M50 can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds.

The i4 M50 offers up to 270 miles of range, according to the EPA, and can add on 88 miles of range in just 10 minutes at a DC fast charging station. Features like regenerative braking and an ECO PRO mode can prolong your range considerably and help the i4 M50 walk an impressive balance between efficiency and all-out performance.
