The latest video from George Torline's time at last month's Midwest Automotive Media Association Spring Rally in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin brings us something you would hope would show up on both this website and on our YouTube Channel. We know there are plenty of BMW enthusiasts that follow us and we really want to deliver.
Luckily for you, George spent enough time in the newest BMW i4 to produce a video on it.
Yes, the BMW-i sub brand is not what you wanted. However, it is your reality. BMW is doubling down on electrification and battery electric vehicles are part of that strategy. The i4 was developed to make amends for earlier efforts (i3 and i8) that danced around the idea of electrification ignoring the essence of the Bavarian automaker's tenets. Instead, they developed an electric platform and fit the body of the 4-Series Gran Coupe onto it, add more tech inside and – voila – it's the second coming of BMW-i!
I'll let George tell you all about it in this video…
As you ascertained, this specific i4 is also an M car – BMW Motorsports, that is. Therefore, this i4 puts out M3/M4 numbers power-wise without resorting to any hardcore bits. In all, George took the i4 through its paces in there countryside near Road America, and you can watch the results above.
We hope you liked the video. Don't forget to subscribe to V&R's YouTube channel. Like the videos and click on the notification bell, too! And yes, we like comments, too!
