Yes, BMW is one of the earliest adopters of sustainable mobility, long before other luxury brands jumped on the bandwagon. Long ago, the German luxury maker has made known its ambitious plan to have more than half of its sales be from all-electric cars by 2030. To pursue this growth plan, the automaker has created an ‘I’ brand, which will serve as the subdivision, focusing more on offering electrified models. After its first EV, the i3 was introduced some years back, the i8 followed it. Down the road, BMW is set to offer new electrified cars with the badge, i4, iX, i5, and i7. No doubt, when it comes to leasing a new BMW EV, many excellent options will leave you stunned.
BMW’s first attempt to provide EVs saw them offering the BMW i3 in 2014. Since then, the i3 has undergone several tweaks and restyling to meet the consumer’s standard—a more comfy cabin, more powerful batteries, and increased driving range. Built on the innovative LifeDrive architecture and with the BMW’s eDrive technology, the i3 is a great first try from BMW. Its 42.2-kilowatt/hour battery can be fully charged in around six hours. Together with an electric motor, it pushes the i3 to 170 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque (can be upped to 181 hp). It also comes with a single-speed transmission to drive the rear wheels.
Combining the best of regular sedans and EV traits, BMW yet again offers an irresistible auto, this time, for EV shoppers. The all-new i4 perfectly blended the best of BMW’s hallmark engaging drive and luxurious experience and electrified car styling and technology.
Based on the BMW 4-series Gran Coupe, the all-new i4, expected to arrive early next year, will be available in two forms, eDrive40 and M50. While the eDrive40 model comes with a single rear-mounted electric motor that generates 335 horsepower, the M50 adds a motor upfront to help it produce 536 horsepower. Nevertheless, both variants afford an 80.7-kWh battery pack, with the rear-drive model sporting an estimated driving range of around 300 miles. In contrast, the all-wheel-drive i4 boasts 245 miles of range.
Following the i4 sedan closely is the iX, an all-electric Sports Activity Vehicle, which is expected to go on sale early next year (2022). The compelling 2022 iX marks BMW’s first shot on an all-electric compact SUV. The all-new iX boasts two electric motors and a large 106.3-kWh battery pack that, according to BMW, helps this SUV get a driving range of up to 300 miles per charge. Available in two models, xDrive50 and M60, and exclusively all-wheel drive, the 2022 iX xDrive50 and M60 will make 516 horsepower and 60 horsepower, respectively.
2022 is not far again, but you can still lease any of the available PHEV from BMW.
