bmw news ix i4

The next generation of battery-electric BMW vehicles will arrive in Canada next spring. During a media presentation this week, BMW product communications lead Jean-Francois Taylor confirmed both the BMW i4 sedan and BMW iX crossover will begin arriving at Canadian dealerships at the beginning of March 2022. The German luxury automaker unveiled the two new EVs in June, but did not provide an exact Canadian arrival date at the time, only saying they'll arrive sometime in the first quarter of next year.

The BMW i4 will be offered in two trim levels in Canada from launch, including the eDrive 40 base model and the M50 performance variant. The eDrive 40 features a single rear-mounted electric motor, which produces 335 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque, along with an 81.5 kWh lithium-ion battery. The M50, meanwhile, boasts a dual-motor setup producing 536 horsepower and 586 lb-ft of torque, and the same 81.5 kWh battery pack. BMW estimates the eDrive40 will be able to travel around 475 kilometres on a full charge, while the M50 has slightly less range at 375 kilometres estimated.
