Hot, New Electric Cars That Are Coming Soon

BMW i4


The new BMW i4 is a conventional-looking EV that broadens the appeal of BMW’s electric offerings. There are two versions available. The eDrive40, with 335 hp and rear-wheel drive, is estimated to have a range of 300 miles. The all-wheel-drive M50, with a maximum of 536 hp, promises sports car performance and 0-to-60-mph acceleration in less than 4 seconds but a lower range of 245 miles. It’s probably no coincidence that those acceleration numbers are similar to Tesla’s Model 3, a rival. With high-power 200-kW DC charging, available only in public venues, the i4 can gain up to 90 miles of range in just 10 minutes. Standard active safety systems include FCW, AEB with pedestrian and cyclist detection, LDW, and LKA.
