The all-new BMW i4 made its global debut in June 2021. Unlike the BMW iX which is a born EV, the new i4 is essentially an electrified version of the 4 Series Gran Coupe. Globally, the BMW i4 is offered in two variants, eDrive40 & M50 xDrive, and the exact same versions are expected to be offered in India too as it will be imported as a CBU (completely built unit).
