Electric BMW i4 and iX3 – South African prices listed

BMW South Africa has listed the local pricing for its i4 M50 electric sedan and iX3 electric SUV.

The prices for these vehicles are as follows:

  • BMW i4 M50 – R1,600,000
  • BMW iX3 – R1,290,000

Each model is accompanied by a 5-year/100,000km BMW Motorplan and an 8-year/160,000km battery warranty.

BMW i4 M50 specifications

The new BMW i4 M50 is equipped with a twin electric motor setup driving all four wheels, generating 400kW and 795Nm.

The electric sedan sprints to 100km/h in 3.9 seconds and offers a top speed of 225km/h, while the 83.9kWh battery provides a maximum range of up to 510km.

With an 11kW wallbox charger, the BMW sees 100km of range added every one hour and 36 minutes, whereas with a 150kW fast charger it takes 21 minutes.

On a standard 2.3kW household socket, the i4 M50 then takes eight hours and seven minutes to build up 100km of range.

To provide the sporty driving characteristics that the automaker is known for, this electric car is also fitted with the adaptive M suspension system, M Sport brakes, M Aerodynamics package, M Carbon exterior package, and 19-inch light-alloy wheels.

BMW iX3 specifications

The BMW iX3 is based on the popular X3, sporting a similar look with small exterior details hinting to its electric drivetrain.

With an 80kWh battery and single electric motor, the rear-wheel-drive iX3 produces 210kW and 400Nm, resulting in a 0-100km/h time of 6.8 seconds and a top speed of 180km/h.

Maximum driving range for this vehicle is pegged at 460km at an electricity consumption rate of 18.5kWh/100km.

Additionally, a fast-charging current of 150kW will add around 100km of range in 10 minutes, said BMW.

What further sets the iX3 apart from its petrol-powered siblings are an enlarged kidney grille, slimmer lights, a redesigned front bumper, adaptive LED headlights, “three-dimensional” LED taillights, signature i-Blue accents, the M Sport styling package, and 20-inch M Aerodynamic wheels.
