Its being reported that the i4 will go by the model names eDrive35, eDrive40 and M50.

"Initially, the working names were BMW i435, i440 and i4 M50 (an M Performance Automobile from the M Division). But those didn’t stick around. Out of the three i4 models, only one will come with the xDrive system: the i4 M50. The number at the end of the “eDrive” badge simply denotes a more powerful and expensive model, versus the battery capacity seen in Tesla models, for example."

I think we can 100% confirm that these names are correct. A user on bimmerpost just found this text document on bmw.de

I can see, that if you look at the source code for the website above, the 2 numbers refer to the prices:

vehicle-model-code-71AW
BMW i4 eDRIVE40 Basis Drive

vehicle-model-price-71AW
65000.01 (this is German site, so I assume EUR 65.000)

vehicle-model-code-31AW
BMW i4 M50

vehicle-model-price-31AW
70000.01 (this is German site, so I assume EUR 70.000)

But these may just be placeholders.
Just for the comparison, the iX3 it starts at EUR 66.300,00

Thanks for confirming @Inside and from an even more official source (BMW). My expectations on i4 pricing is that it will start near the upper end of the 4-series line. It makes the most sense to me and is often how these new models are slotted in.
