If you are from the United States, introduce yourself and share details of your 2022+ BMW i4 here.
Florida here…. Long time bimmer guy…. Decided to try out a Tesla for a couple years… I placed a deposit for an iX M50 and i4 M50 on June 1st… can’t wait to spec the i4 out as my daily, bit still have to talk the Mrs into giving up her X5 for an iX..it’s a work in progress … I’ve determined that EV is a fantastic platform for daily driving…. definitely not as thrilling during spirited driving or track days though. Still need an ///M3 for that
Wisconsin guy here. I too am a long time BMW sedan guy, though my wife drives a BMW Vert when not driving our Honda SUV. I placed a deposit on a i4 M40 but may decided to switch to the M50 when it gets closer. My local dealer said you can change up until the point of when the order is in without penalty. I am looking forward to the i4 as a spirited daily to replace my current ICE BMW daily.
I was planning on a M340i or even an M2C next year, but have been interested in an EV since Tesla's first came out. I toyed with getting a used i3 as a commuter car, but am glad I waited for the i4 release announcement. My employer offers free Level 2 charging and I can install a 240V Level charger in my garage. I'm keeping my ICE BMW, but am looking forward to the brave new world. I will lease as I'm not convinced that EV tech is mature just yet.
Welcome to the forum everyone!Kentucky here. Started with a Nissan LEAF on a 3 yr. lease. Moved to an i3 on a stupid low monthly payment for a 2 yr. lease and then bought it CPO a couple of years ago (well below the contractual residual) at the end of that. Hope to drive it until I take delivery of the i4 M50 I put a deposit on.
Wife went from minivans to Audi Q5 and now drives an MX3. Got her parents an X3 about the same time. Fully invested in the ultimate driving machine.
Still sparse, but 1,000x better than when I leased my LEAF 7 years ago.Welcome to the forum everyone!
What is the charging network like near all of you currently? I know Electrify America plans to roll out a lot of public charging stations along with a few other companies.
I couldn't decide between e40 (range) and M50 (awesomeness) so I have a deposit on both. I've decided I'll be forgoing the range and getting the M50.
Car history includes a string of 911/GT3 street/track cars usually paired with a 5 series for commuting. My last 2 BMWs were an M4 followed by an M550i.
My wife currently drives an Audi e-tron so we have a lot of experience with EV ownership. Charging at home really makes EV ownership delightful.
We've made a few road trips from Austin to DFW with mixed results. The first couple of trips we had absolutely no issues with EA chargers, but this last trip we ran into the typical EA problem of multiple broken/flaky chargers. The biggest issue with EV road tripping is the lack of choice/density of chargers. It's really frustrating having to detour 25-50 miles out of your way to get to a fast charger.
Having said all that - I'm hooked on EVs - love the instant torque and not having to stop for gas.
Hello @Bimmer100 , welcome to the madness, where we just shoot the breeze (and occasionally exchange valuable information) while all waiting for BMW to 1) call us into the dealership to customize our pre-order (apparently, on one of the threads I think at least 1 person did confirm his/her order), then 2) deliver the order sometimes next year. On the meantime, do look around the different threads, a lot of good information, and a lot of not-so-informative-but-entertaining stuff.Hello to those in the USA with future I4's coming.
My wife and I are in Washington State and we both have i4 M50's on preorder. I'm told the Seattle dealer received the most M50 preorders of any dealer on the west coast. Or 53 m50s.
These will be our first EV cars that will be replacing a 435i Coupe and 435i Gran Coupe.
I look forward to meeting others on the forum!
