BMW plans to launch a breathtaking and fashionable range of new cars later this year and into 2022. As of now, the manufacturer has not fully revealed such cars but it has ‘dropped hints’ to whet the appetite. Here’s what to expect… 

BMW i4: £55,000+ from late 2021 

The BMW i4 is the ‘first purely electric gran coupe’, according to the Munich-based brand. Obvious immediately is the muscular styling that implies there is plenty of power under the bonnet. And there is. Expect up to 530hp and 62mph in only four seconds (top-spec version). BMW said it also feels ‘impressively smooth’ on the road while you can expect up to 363 miles per charge. It is ‘perfect’ for ‘long distance journeys and your everyday commute’, the manufacturer said.

The BMW iX is a new, electric, sports activity vehicle that ‘heralds a new age in mobility’. Among many other things, this vehicle is a further step towards autonomous motoring. It has a more capable self-parking feature than its predecessors which is partly because it has more computing power which processes 20 times the data of the average car computer.

The BMW iX comes in two forms: xDrive 40 and xDrive 50. Both versions are fast, powerful and capable of travelling a considerable distance per charge. Respectively expect: 300hp and 500hp, 62mph in five and six seconds, plus 249 and 373 miles per charge. Expect the manufacturer’s typically composed handling, too.

Further prospects

BMW is expected to launch yet more cars in 2022. They include:

  • BMW X8 – very big sports-utility vehicle rumoured to have coupe-like styling, enormous power, all-wheel drive, auto transmission, a luxurious cabin, and a plug-in hybrid drive system that allows it to run on electric power only (at times)
  • BMW i7 – large, electric, luxury saloon that is rumoured to have a futuristic interior, long range per charge, and an enormous front grille that makes it stand out from its rivals.

BMW clearly has big plans for its immediate future. Obvious, too, is that its future is clean, zero emission, fully electric cars rather than the traditional equivalents. Interesting times!
