Yesterday, BMW introduced a range of new electric vehicles for their upcoming summer 2023 lineup. Among these additions are the i4 xDrive 40, an all-wheel-drive version of the i4, the i7 eDrive50 with a single motor, and the hybrid 750e xDrive. Additionally, the automaker revealed an enhanced infotainment operating system for select models.
The i4 xDrive40 for 2024 is a high-performance, all-wheel-drive variant of the renowned Gran Coupe. This electric vehicle boasts a robust 396-horsepower output and features dual motors. With the standard 18-inch tires, it offers an estimated range of 307 miles (which slightly reduces to around 282 miles when equipped with optional 19-inch wheels). Impressively, the i4 xDrive40 can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just 4.9 seconds. Starting at $61,600, plus a $995 destination fee, BMW anticipates commencing deliveries in the United States during the third quarter of 2023
Meanwhile, the i7 eDrive50, a rear-wheel-drive model, is equipped with a single GEN5 motor generating an impressive 449 horsepower. BMW plans to disclose precise details regarding its range and performance as the market launch approaches this fall. However, the starting price for this model is confirmed at $105,700, excluding the destination fee. On the other hand, the 750e xDrive combines a six-cylinder internal combustion engine with a 194-horsepower electric motor, resulting in a combined power output of 483 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. The plug-in hybrid variant offers a purely electric range of 35 miles. The 750e xDrive will be available at a starting price of $107,000, along with the same $995 destination fee. The launch of both models is scheduled for this fall in the United States.
