First look at BMW i4 M Sport Package

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
New Video Look and Photos:



















Update: this is confirmed to be an i4 with M Sport Package


Hey folks, there we go.

This time we can see the i4 with M Sport package
The front looks very similar to the gasoline 4 series with M Sport package.

What do you guys think?
Do we see here the M50 version or just a normal i4 with M Sport?
On the pictures you can see the blue brake calipers and the M Sport seats. But on the ICE 4 series you can choose these two things as an option on a non M Performance model too.

BMW showed us an i4 mule with M specific mirrors, so i hope the M50 verison will get these

from the press release:

"look ahead to the fully electric BMW i4 in M Sport specification"

So I assume this is the normal i4 with M-Sport package.

Its looks damn good!

Thank you for the link, so I'm really looking forward to the M50. This should be my next vehicle. If BMW didn't fool us, the i4 M50 will be the first M Performance model with M specific mirrors.
Further I'm very excited to see the interior trim with the curved display.

Where did you find this date?

As you can see in the picture above which MPSdriver postet, the bold "phone" number shows us the release date.
You can see the car at BMWs Youtube Video BMW M Town "The Drop" - behind the scenes. at 3:50 min

This date was also confirmed to me last week by a BMW customer service employe

Edit: Fun fact: The ICE 4 series was also released on June 2nd (2020)

Doesn't look remotely "sporty" in the way M sport pkg usually entails.

It's going to take more then M mirrors to get my attention

I am looking for performance and that includes the batteries abilities

They hide a lot of tech behind them actually

Dam! My wife wanted to lease a new bmw too, but there is no way Id ever let one of these grills in my garage, especially parked next to my f83. Looks like shes getting an f30 340i, Mercedes, or Tesla. Bmw is beyond disappointing

This looks okay. Im getting X7 styling vibes from the side profile.

I am mostly concerned with the safety systems built around the battery tech of the i4. Read an article recently about a Tesla that burst into flames after it crashed. Supposedly, it took the fire department "several hours" to put out the fire. I can only assume this was due to the battery itself fueling the fire.

How different is this battery system from that of Tesla's? Has BMW published any crash test data or other technical information regarding the specifics of its battery technology and how it impacts the safety of the vehicle during a crash?

I don't plan on crashing, but if someone T-bones me in the middle of an intersection at relatively high speed, I want to know that my family isn't going to be instantly burned alive just because I chose to drive a BEV instead of an ICE vehicle.

Actually think the radar is only incorporated for the iX. There's pictures floating around with the ACC sensor cut out just like the regular 4.
