73 620 Aufrufe

To create the BMW i4, our first purely electric Gran Coupé, we've used decades of technological expertise, aiming for the perfect balance between dynamism and comfort - and setting a new standard among premium brands. The BMW i4 is currently completing the final phase of its driving dynamics testing, and will be arriving later this year.
*This test drive took place on a non-public, closed-off test track.

  • If you've driven a model 3, you know how the road noise just purely sucks in that car... BMW is known for making cars that feel premium, I am hopeful

  • I actually like the bigger grills. I think they look aggressive and dominant on the road. But that would depend on the design of the front other than the grille.

  • Bad news for BMW, now your average kia or Hyundai has a better or same interior comfort and styling. Good news for consumers, now your average Kia of Hyundai has a interior as good as the Germans, reliability far better then the Germans, and cost less then half the Germans.

  • I know people will hate me for this, but I think the new grille looks better than the older one. Also, why does this car look nothing like the i4 concept, is this shape going to be the final version?

  • Looking forward to the new i4. Hope the designers come to their senses with a more subdued grill design. Not sure if I like the idea of the engineered motor sounds courtesy of BMW sound designer Renzo Vitale and composer Hans Zimmer. (see obscure sci-fi reference to C. M. Kornbluth "The Marching Morons") And PLEASE! tell me that it won't require run-flat tires.

      Eric PerkinsEric PerkinsVor Monat
    • @Eric Perkins That's bullshit. I am a private owner of my already second i3 because around town it still is one of the best electric cars. You can easily drive it around 11-12 kWh. The carbon structure is unique and prevents corrosion. Sold my first i3 after 5 years and it was still like new. In Germany most M3 buyers need to spend money on aftermarket cavity preservation. The cargo area is much better usable than in a M3 and because I do not drive it long distances I do not care about the super charger network - the next station for me would be around 50 kilometres away anyway. I can charge my car at home every day. Plus I am a fan of Apple CarPlay, which Tesla does not support at all. Plus I have a premium and customizable interior. Stuff like that is much more important for me than downloading bugfixes and minor changes every week.

      Paul WürdigPaul WürdigVor Monat
    • If you own an i3 then maybe it's you who should admit to being wrong. i3 is a compliance car at best. For the same money you could have bought a Tesla with access to the supercharger Network, updates every couple weeks including new features like sentry mode, etc. The i3 carbon design was cool as was the choice of materials, but that's it.

    • @TzarCoal 101 ok, do you have a source? because from my search on google which I just did, I haven't found anywhere that stated that VW finally added OTA, only that it promised to have but will only add in the future.

      tomi832tomi832Vor Monat
    • @TzarCoal 101 yeah and analysts say many things about Tesla yet they a lot of the time if not always wrong. So just because a few analysts (which all which I've seen about it are just shorters who try to hurt TSLA stock and say that Tesla isn't that good) say something doesn't mean they are right. Hell, I've seen one which says that Tesla is one of the lasts when it comes to FSD, yet they don't really say why, maybe mention that others have greater tracking abilities yet tracking abilities aren't necessary in a true FSD vehicle, so I can't see why would it be so relevant. Anyway, Tesla released part of the rewrite to their FSD to very few people, and from videos you can clearly see that Tesla is far ahead of the competition. The only one who technically stands in their level is Waymo which like Elon said - a very specific solution which will be very hard to spread out, especially on rural area, and relies too much on map data which could be wrong. Tesla's approach is a more general one, which would work everywhere and you can see it now. Waymo needs to drive a road many times for their vehicles to be able to navigate through it, Tesla doesn't need to ride the road beforehand.
