Need help buying your next car? Click the following link and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!

Here it is, the first fully electric car to receive the BMW M division treatment… Introducing the BMW i4 M50!

Mat’s got his hands on this all-new M EV and he’s taking it on a test across Germany to see if it can really go toe-to-toe with some of BMW’s best petrol-powered performance cars.

Want to know the basics? Well for starters, there’s no denying that the i4 looks seriously impressive & can easily match up to the M3 in the style stakes. The interior is equally just as nice, but then again, it’s no surprise given it’s built on the same platform as the M3.

As for performance, well the i4 M50 can once again match up to the M3, delivering a power output of 544hp & 795Nm of torque - both of which are increases compared to its petrol-powered compatriot!

So it can equal both the looks and the performance… But is it really just as fun to drive once you’re out on the open road? Well, there’s only one way to find out… Stick with Mat for his latest in-depth review!

All the marketing brochures I have received from BMW, the i4M50 was only ranged at approx 245 miles. Already at 0:19 seconds, your graphic stating 500km/310mi is for the non-M i4, not the car shown or reviewed. You shouldn't have been shocked at the range at 1:00.
IAYFriend преди 3 дни
Nah....with dealer mark-up and that range, Model3 DM with accel boost is still a win.....only if you can get them.

so you consumed 2/3 of the battery on 185km and you calculate a range of the full battery should be 290 miles (467km)? And then you complain that it is below what BMW advertises? lol

Tesla 0-60 stats are done using a one-foot roll out so : 1) It's not actually tested from zero mph 2) It's not actually under 2 seconds 3) On the Audi - you mean the S8 Plus, which was sill 3.8 seconds

I think you miscalculated the full battery range it should be 273km ? You covered 185km with 62% battery usage. Sure the full battery range on this trip working out estimated less than 200 miles ? Thanks

In terms of acceleration it does look phenomenally fast but I don't like the kidney grill of the new look BMWs plus with the blanked in grill which I know it doesn't need a grill as it's an EV but with it blanked in like most EVs it just has a "gopping" look about it like someone had punched it in the face and smashed all it's teeth out. It's one thing I hope car manufacturers address as things progress further with EVs, the rather blank "gopping" looks of their front ends, the Tesla is the worst for it.

So a cheap M3 that is an M3 until you drive it, then it becomes a lesser beast to save battery… and the whole performance thing is a moot point when you are sat in a service station getting fat on dead meat (weight gain that will further impact range and increase methane pollutants) whilst it slooooowly recharges and all the 1 litre diesels you passed before creep by.. Plenty of time to buy some new yellow trousers and plan your next eco motorway blockage from your yurt….buy petrol people - plants need co2… jeez has no one remembered photosynthesis.. now where did I park my ozone hole-punching rocket powered Tesla..
