Lloyd Cockermouth Takes The BMW i4 For a Spin - Read Their Review
"Why a BMW electric car suits your lifestyle perfectly."
What is the BMW i4 like to drive?
The first all-electric Gran Coupé of the BMW 4 Series sets new standards. Extraordinary performance is combined with excellent comfort and emission-free local driving. This week, our Aftersales Manager at Lloyd Cockermouth, Shane Fox has taken the new BMW i4 eDrive40 to the BMW Group Academy in Reading to get an idea of its real-world range, its efficiency and how quickly it recharges.
Ahead of the 316 miles journey he used the My BMW app for planning and routing the most efficient routes. You can use the My BMW app or BMW Maps in your vehicle's navigation system. You can add a filter to find charging points for alternating current (AC), direct current (DC), and high-power charging (HPC). The vehicle's navigation system will then display a suitable charging station. In the BMW i4, the charging-optimised route automatically adds charging stations to the route.
He started the journey with a full battery charge and had two coffee breaks as normal at the Service station on the Motorway where he used a public fast charger to top up the car for approximately 20 minutes. Rather than driving the vehicle to 0 range, he took advantage of his normal motorway stops to top up the electric charge.
The car was great to drive, really smooth and powerful. Even the sound was right. It gives you a relaxed driving sensation – gliding almost silently.
The BMW i4 combines next-level performance with modern comforts to deliver a truly outstanding driving experience. Equipped with fifth-generation BMW eDrive technology, the BMW i4 M50 delivers up to 544hp, while the BMW i4 eDrive40 offers up to 365 miles* in range. The range will depend on how you drive and where you drive but also on the climate conditions.
If you are an EV sceptic still waiting to plug in, this is the car that will do it. The BMW i4 does exactly what you need to travel comfortably in the country, confidently in the city or swiftly on the motorway – finding the automotive sweet spot between sleek and-sporty styling, aspirational-yet-understated desirability, and head-spinning, pulse-quickening performance.
