Within the BMW i4, the specific design principle for its electric motor means any use of rare earth materials is avoided. This focus on sustainability aligns with BMW Group's use of recyclates. Today, around 25% secondary steel, up to 50% secondary aluminium in certain components and up to 20% secondary thermoplastics are used throughout the production process.



The way in which an electric car functions differs fundamentally from that of a vehicle with a combustion engine in that the motor of an electric car is not powered by fuel but exclusively by electricity. This electricity is stored in a battery, the capacity of which helps determine the range, in other words, the distance that can be covered with one battery charge. With electric driving comes exciting possibilities. That’s why BMW approaches this new era in mobility just like any other; where engineering, innovation and aesthetics come together seamlessly to inspire joy in every journey.

Pure electric range for the BMW i4

347.35-365.99 miles (Sport) 337.40-352.32 miles (M Sport) 258.49-318.76 miles (M50)

Charging time at home

62 miles in <2.05 hours (based on a current of 32A, 1-phase)^

CO₂ emissions for the BMW i4

Zero emissions*

^ Dependent on the local electricity infrastructure. Charging time corresponds to a charge of 80% of maximum capacity and based on a single-phase supply current of max 32A.

* These figures were obtained after the battery had been fully charged. The BMW i4 is a battery electric vehicle requiring mains electricity for charging. There is a new test for fuel consumption, CO₂ and electric range figures. The electric range shown was achieved using the new test procedure. Figures shown are for comparability purposes. Only compare fuel consumption, CO₂ and electric range figures with other cars tested to the same technical procedures. These figures may not reflect real life driving results, which will depend upon a number of factors including the starting charge of the battery, accessories fitted (post-registration), variations in weather, driving styles and vehicle load. The CO₂ figures shown above have been determined according to the WLTP test. WLTP has been used as the applicable CO₂ figure from 1 April 2020 for first year vehicle tax (VED) and from 6 April 2020 for company car tax (BIK). The CO₂ figures were previously based on the NEDC equivalent.


With your BMW i4 and BMW Charging, you benefit from numerous tailor-made offers for charging at home, on the road and at work. Two charging cables are available as standard; the Mode 3 charging cable is five metres in length and ideal for use at public charging stations, while the Mode 2 Flexible Charger is perfect for use at home.
