The first-ever fully-electric Gran Coupé from BMW i is now available for order in Malaysia.
Kuala Lumpur, 7th April 2022 – BMW Malaysia today commenced pre-booking for the First-Ever BMW i4 eDrive40 M Sport in Malaysia, after its unveiling at NEXTGen Malaysia in January this year.
Hans de Visser, Managing Director of BMW Group Malaysia said, “Sheer Electric Driving Pleasure with a modern, striking yet elegant silhouette – we are thrilled to bring to Malaysia the First-Ever BMW i4 eDrive40 M Sport that retains the hallmark design characteristics of a contemporary four-door BMW Gran Coupé, while also exemplifying the exceptional sporting prowess and efficiency that the fifth-generation BMW eDrive is capable of delivering.”
He added, “As pioneer and proponent of sustainable mobility in Malaysia, we will continue to advance electromobility in the country with vehicles that not only impress visually, but also evoke excitement in our Malaysian fans and customers for the possibilities of the future. Along with the First-Ever BMW iX and First-Ever BMW iX3, the First-Ever BMW i4 eDrive40 M Sport represents our commitment to that longstanding promise, which began back in 2015 with the First-Ever BMW i8.”
With a classic rear-wheel drive layout, the First-Ever BMW i4 eDrive40 M Sport combines a progressive design with superior aerodynamics, electrifying dynamic performance and comfort. Its current-excited synchronous motor generates a maximum output of 250 kW/340 hp and a peak torque of 430 Nm, which allows for a century sprint time of just 5.7 seconds. Outstanding efficiency ensures not just sustainable, carbon-neutral driving on the daily, but also an electric range that can effortlessly endure long journeys (590 km based on the WLTP cycle). In between drives, the fifth-generation BMW eDrive system is compatible with the latest charging technology. Its Combined Charging Unit (CCU) with built-in 4 kW voltage transformer has been designed to enable extremely flexible battery charging – compatible with a domestic power socket or a BMW i Wallbox (an 11-kW AC charger fully charges the vehicle in just 8 hours 15 minutes), as well as DC fast chargers (a 200-kW DC charger charges the vehicle from 10 per cent to 80 per cent in just 31 minutes).
