The rear 3/4 is a weird angle on this car. It looks like it's being sucked into a black hole

The fact that you judge another based upon a single word tells us a lot about you.

Everyone is so hell bent on hating this car and design, it looks fantastic in this image.
Everyone is so hell bent on hating this car and design, it looks like a borderline acceptable Nissan in this image of a concept car without a license plate.

Quick shop using web app, but you get the idea...

Do you really think BMW is going to put aggressive sporty wheels on their electric car? This thing is going to have odd wheels like Tesla Model 3 aero wheels for days. Sure you can buy aftermarket wheels

The wheels make a big difference on this car. With the right wheels, as in the image above, it looks great, grill and all. The problem with the concept is that bmw is trying too hard to make it look new and futuristic. It comes off cartoonish like when someone renders an interpretation of what cars will look like in 2100. Why not just make an EV styled according to current standards, and let the styling evolve naturally like with any other model?

I don't. The wheels they choose should be pretty terrible.

Well, this design should be very close to G26 4er Grand Coupe as well.

Grill has got to get bigger- by at least 50%. How will people know that it is a BMW if not for two giant black non-openings at the front?

That's actually not bad at all in profile... But I agree with others that it can be a svelte beauty side and rear, but if it's got those kidneys it's like being hammer punched in the face when the front comes around.

Anything is better than the feminine frozen gold.

Still don't like the hockey stick 🏒 design elements, or the i8 e-blue highlighted two-tone hockey stick and rear diffuser. Yeah and those funky looking rims are not doing the overall design any justice.

I still use the word Rad, which for you young millennials stands for Radical, growing up in the Big kick-ass 80s! Ah, the good all days.

Id really like to see the i4 in Black + light grey design lines or Dark grey and carbonfibre design lines...
That and some nice wheels on it would make it nothing but clear beautyfulness!

... just read this.. AGREE, the shape was almost like a grill mimic ( previous ).. I think the call to go with the tall grill may have changed the goal

I was firmly in the Tesla Model 3 camp for my first EV. Now, I'm not so sure. While the front grille is a rather radical departure from what we are accustom to, I still like everything about the car. I'd like to see the clear roof go away from the production car, but they keep everything else. I like the concept car's color and interior enough to order my car w/ that combination.

If the range is comparable to the Tesla (Long Range) Model 3 (350+ miles) and the pricing is comparable, I'm in on the BMW. I like the fact that BMW elected to integrate some dials, and buttons into their design rather than Tesla's "everything on the screen approach". I'm not a sedan fan, but the Tesla doesn't offer a 2 dr. option either. I think 4 doors is what we are going to see in all initial releases. I find the i4 profile to look quite sporty to my eye.

I still have a few questions that need answering before going "all in" on the i4. Actual pricing, battery lifespan, warranty and storage space come immediately to mind.

I do find it amusing that much of the negative I hear on this forum is similar to what was being parroted on the Corvette C8 forum before it's introduction.

There certainly is a market for an EV comparable (pricing and range) to the Tesla Model 3. If what is being presented in the i4 videos is accurate, this car could steal a large chunk of the Model 3's market share.
