".... after finishing the ride discovered that the i4 was with the heater for the rear seat on full during the entire range test, which draws energy. And yes, the Model 3 charged a bit faster, but not much. On the other hand, the i4 wins on perceived quality, it wins big on comfort, and it wins in place..."
The BMW i4 fits nicely between the other two cars in the test, and maybe this is a good and golden middle ground. One quickly notices that this is the definitive premium car of these three. It's like a suit with a perfect fit. Just getting into the seats, and you notice a clear difference. Take the wheel and you feel it's right.
The space in the i4 is not worse than in the others, although from the driver's seat it may seem more compact. The luggage space that reveals itself when you open the tailgate is actually the largest of these three, with its 470 liters. It also has a nice flexibility with rear seat backs that can be folded down in 40/20/40 splits. If you buy a car with a subwoofer, it takes up half of the space under the luggage compartment floor, but you still have room for the charging cables next to it. They are referred there, as the car is not delivered with frunk.
The BMW i4 M50 is a car from the M division of BMW, you know the ones that have made several generations of cars like the M3, M4, M5 and so on. They have broad and long experience in the field, and have now put their signature on an electric car for the first time. This gives addictive results. You notice it from the first meter. It has everything you would expect in a driving machine like this, and when the turns get tight, it gets extra hot. Despite a weight of 2,290 kg, it responds to the slightest command. There is also a steering feel in the car which is almost indescribable. Because you do not get a lot of signals from the roadway and up the steering wheel, as many want. Yet it is so incredibly precise and accurate that even a bad driver will notice it, and variable steering gear is wonderful. Three driving programs allow you to choose from the most economical to the most sporty, and you can set up an individual setup, where steering, chassis and more are as you want it. When you also sit well and correctly, many of the pieces fall into place. The car also comes with rear air springs, mostly to maintain ground clearance at all times, regardless of how much you load in it. Unlike the others in the test, it can also pull 1.6 tons of trailer weight.
Conclusion (Google translate)
Which of these cars is then the ultimate driving machine, for this time we have little focus on family relationships and space for child seats. All three have extremely hefty performances, but it's just a car that almost gives you goosebumps. It offers a fantastic mix of premium feel, a dynamic driving feel that normally does not belong to electric cars, and at a price that is far below what a Porsche Taycan can be bought for. Because it would actually be an equally comparable situation that we have exposed the BMW i4 M50 to here.
We congratulate the BMW i4 on the first place, closely followed by the Tesla Model 3 Performance, and a solid consolation prize for the Ford Mustang Mach-E GT.
