THE first all-electric BMW i4 eDrive 35 will be on the road in the UK this summer with order books now open for the latest EV to join the Bavarian car maker's line up.
The i4 eDrive35 will be priced from £49,995 and will be available in both Sport and M Sport trim.
The four-door Gran Coupe offers a fully-electric range of up to 299 miles and features the same BMW Curved Display with BMW iDrive and Operating System 8 found in all BMW i4 models, as well as the BMW iX and iX1.
The BMW i4 eDrive35 is built at BMW Group Munich Plant alongside the eDrive40 and M50 models and it is expected that the production volume share of fully-electric cars at the plant will increase to 50 per cent of the total manufactured volume in 2023.
BMW's portfolio of fully-electric vehicles is continuing to grow, with BMW i5 set to join the BMW iX1, BMW i4, BMW iX3, BMW iX and BMW i7 later in 2023.
The BMW Group is aiming for more than 50 per cent of its sales volumes to come from fully-electric vehicles no later than 2030.
Last year in the UK, BMW battery electric vehicle sales tripled on the previous year to 21,481 registrations, meaning one in five BMWs sold last year was a fully-electric vehicle, making it the fastest-growing BEV brand in the UK.
Steve Roberts, general manager, corporate sales, BMW UK, said: "Following the huge success we have seen with BMW i4 in the corporate and fleet markets since launch, we are very pleased to bring the eDrive35 model to the UK portfolio.
"We're offering this model in Sport and M Sport trims, which both include an impressive level of standard equipment, including 18-inch alloy wheels, alongside a range of up to 299 miles. This latest model to join the i4 range will make electric driving accessible to even more of our customers."
