Whether petrolheads like it or not, electric cars are the future. But BMW is taking away the fear for drivers who need to be weaned off the petrol pump.

While dedicated electric models such as the Mercedes EQS, an Audi e-tron GT or even the iX from its own ranks promise different and new driving experiences, the old values count with the i4.

The four-door ‘coupe hatchback’ promises more driving pleasure than any other electric car in this class and feels as much like a combustion engined car as it can.

BMW has not developed its own ground-up design for the i4, but has used the basic structure of the best-selling 3 and 4-Series as the foundation for this car.

With this in mind, can the i4 really take the fight to ‘bespoke’ EVs like the Tesla Model 3 and Polestar 2? Nicki Shields finds out.
