Despite the fact that design and specifications had been revealed by insiders long before the premiere, the BMW i4 still had something to surprise with. In particular, the new car has become the first electric model of the company in the segment of four-door Gran Coupes. It has received a large fake radiator grille, which is nothing more than a decor. The i4 is also equipped with stylish camera mirrors and exclusive wheels. Thin and contrasting blue lines add some sophistication to it.
