The new BMW i4 eDrive40 M Sport comes with a rear-wheel drive layout, featuring a single motor that delivers a maximum output of 250 kW (340 hp) and 430 Nm of torque to its rear wheels.

Powering the EV is an 83.9 kWh battery which offers up a travel distance of 590 km (based on the WLTP cycle) on a full charge. Speaking of which, the BMW i4 eDrive40 M Sport is designed to be compatible with the latest charging technology, with support of up to 200 kW DC fast-charging which can top-up the vehicle from 10% to 80% in just 31 minutes. Meanwhile, its 11 kW integrated AC charger is capable of completely juicing its battery to 100% in just 8 hours 15 minutes).

The EV will be in Black Sapphire, Mineral White and Dravit Grey in its first selection, with additional colours such as Sanremo Green, M Portimao Blue and M Brooklyn Grey (replacing Dravit Grey) to be added later in the year.
For its interior, the cabin of the BMW i4 eDrive40 M Sport is decked out with the Aluminium Rhombicle Anthracite interior trim, M Anthracite headliner, M leather steering wheel, an instrument panel in Sensatec, 17-speaker Harman Kardon surround system, as well as a curved screen that combines the 12.3-inch instrument cluster and 14.9-inch control display.
