BMW i4 Car leasing
The Tesla Model 3 is the only viable company car / high-mileage electric saloon surely? Until Mid-2021, UK customers were faced with a limited choice for their next saloon with the Tesla Model 3 clearly dominating the UK’s electric fleet – some 35,000 Tesla M3’s were registered in 2021. The next-best seller, the Kia e-Niro, only managed a 3rd of that! And while the Tesla is the superlative zero emission product, BMW are going to be the 2022 contender for electric car manufacturer of the year.
While the German manufacturer are anything but new to the world of EV’s, since launching the hatchback i3 and supercar i8 the group seemingly stepped out of the limelight and all seemed to be quiet. That was until the I4 Gran Coupe was officially launched in 2021 for the UK demographic. Very much an alternative the combustion BMW 3 series and 4 series, the i4 will feature in one battery format (an 83.9 kWh) and two outputs (250 kW and 400kW).
For clarity, the kilowatt hour (kWh) denotes the size of the battery (engine) and the kilowatt (kW) denotes the power output. So for the i4 you have a car with exactly the same size battery but it has been configured so that one option is quicker than the other – the 250 kW is equivalent of 337 hp and the 400 kW is equivalent of 536 hp. However, with the additional power, the driver will lose some of the range capabilities – make sense?
For simplicity, BMW will be launching their electric company car option in a Sport option (LED headlights, automatic tailgate, live cockpit, sports seats, air conditioning, heat pump, reversing camera and cruise control) and M Sport option (M sport bodystyling, 19” alloy upgrades, M sport steering wheel, sports seat, leather upholstery) , with the ability to add a Tech Pack (Harman/Kardon, Cockpit Professional and wireless charging) or Pro Pack (Sport brake calipers, variable sport steering, adaptive suspension, sun protection glass, high-gloss shadow line) or both. Looking for an electric alternative to an M3 or M4? Go for the M Model – an EV based on dynamics, power and agility with all of the M design enhancements.
Living with your BWM i4 is all explained clearly on our e-car lease website. For example, the eDrive 40 model will offer combined cold weather ranges of around 245 miles and 340-mile summer performance. Compare this to the M50 option which offers combined cold weather ranges of around 235 miles and 320-mile summer performance. And think that electric BMWs are boring? The eDrive 40 still has 0-62 times of 5.7 seconds with the M50 doing the same in just 4! Charging at 11 kW AC means 0-100% will take circa 9 hours with the 200 kW DC rapid charging max enabling 30 minute 10 – 80% charging times.
The charging rate on the BMW makes this one of most practical EVs to select amongst the other leasing options. At e-car lease we like to re-enforce that it isn’t just about range; the charging rate for your electric vehicle is equally crucial, particularly when you are using Zap Map to find DC options throughout the UK’s public charging destinations.
