The 2022 BMW i4 Electric Sports Sedan Looks Good, Drives Great

Ignore those buck teeth for a moment and set your eyes on the future.

On Oct. 11, BMW reported that third-quarter sales were up 8.7% from a year earlier. This surpassed sales by No. 2 Lexus for the first nine months of 2021, positioning BMW to claim the title of most luxury cars sold in the U.S. this year. Audi, Mercedes-Benz, and Porsche all reported sales declines for the quarter.

So I can’t help but think that the 2022 BMW i4, an all-electric car due in showrooms early next year, is arriving at a good time for the Munich-based automaker. BMW’s first-ever electric sport sedan, I predict, will propel that wave of enthusiasm with its svelte design, exceptional interior technologies, robust driving capability, and confidence-inspiring battery life.
