BMW i4 M50 was the best-selling M-badged car in 2022
BMW i4 was one of the most important cars for the German marque in 2022. The M50 version of the EV became the brand's most-selling performance-oriented model last year. The 'M' division celebrated its 50th anniversary on a high note with total sales of 1,77,257 units, 8.4% more than the previous year (2021). For highlights, the i4 M50 promises a range of 590km.
Why does this story matter?
- BMW commemorated the 'M' division's golden anniversary in style by introducing a special '50 Jahre M edition' variant of all its performance-oriented cars.
- To add a cherry on top, the all-electric i4 M50 got a warm reception from critics and buyers.
- The EV is essentially an all-wheel-drive 4 Series Gran Coupe with dual electric motors in place of an Internal Combustion Engine (ICE).
The sedan flaunts designer wheels and a large kidney grille
The BMW i4 M50 follows the brand's aggressive design philosophy and flaunts a sculpted bonnet, sleek LED headlamps with C-shaped DRLs, a large kidney grille with blue accents, and a sloping roofline. The EV is flanked by ORVMs, chrome-lined windows, and designer alloy wheels. Wrap-around LED taillights, a shark-fin antenna, and a blacked-out diffuser are available at the rear end.
It is backed by a 544hp electric powertrain
The BMW i4 M50 draws power from dual electric motors in an all-wheel-drive configuration, that is linked to an 80.3kWh battery pack. The setup generates 544hp/795Nm. The vehicle promises a range of up to 590km on a single charge.
The EV features a Harman Kardon sound system
