BMW has long been at the forefront of electric-car manufacturing. Recently, the automaker launched the BMW i4 sedan. It’s an electric four-door vehicle with a 335-horsepower electric motor. The BMW i4 is an ideal electric vehicle for Shiloh, IL drivers. The German automaker has designed the i4 to compete with Tesla and other EV sedans, and the upcoming 2022 redesign makes that clear.

Engine and Transmission

For 2022, the BMW i4 has either single or twin motors which vary between models. The vehicle can accelerate up to 60 mph in as little as 5.7 seconds. The i4 with twin motors is an all-wheel drive vehicle with 536 horsepower. The increase in power reaches 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds. Additionally, the vehicle has 18-inch rims, and Edwardsville drivers have the option of 19-inch rims.

Charging and Battery Life

The single motor version can travel for an estimated 300 miles around Belleville, IL with a full battery. The twin-motor vehicle has an 81.5-kWh battery, just like the single motor BMW i4. Additionally, the vehicle comes with a 11-kilowatt charging capacity. That means, once the battery power drains, it can recharge in less than 8 hours. Since you'll often charge it while it's not totally drained, you'll easily have it fully charged for the morning commute into St. Louis.

Interior and Comfort

The interior of the 2022 i4 will be extravagant with rose gold and light wood trim. Moreover, the interior will also be spacious, and the dramatic roofline will complement the four-door body style.

Connectivity and Infotainment

Since it’s the most recent BMW model, the i4 will have the latest infotainment system. Also known as iDrive 8, the system has a 14.9-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. From the system, you can control a myriad of features in the vehicle and connect your smartphone for easy listening around Highland.
