Price of the BMW i4 M50 in Malaysia has been announced, starting from RM 430,800 (OTR with SST). The BMW i4 M50 is one of five M cars that BMW Malaysia has introduced today in celebration of 50 years of the M division.

The BMW i4 was launched in Malaysia in April this year in a less powerful eDrive40 guise, starting at a price of RM 364,676 (without SST) and RM 374,210 (with SST).

Combining the ‘M’ and ‘i’ badge from BMW, the BMW i4 M50 boasts 400 kW (544 PS) of maximum power output and 795 Nm of maximum torque in Sport Boost mode. Century sprint can be achieved in just 3.9 seconds, while top speed is capped at 225 km/h.

Two BMW M eDrive motors are implemented in the First-Ever BMW i4 M50 – one each for the front and rear axles.

Still based on the existing G22 BMW 3 series Gran Coupe, the BMW i4 is one of the performance-oriented choices of EVs in Malaysia.

The sporty character of the car is exemplified through standard equipment features including the M Aerodynamics package, M rear spoiler in body colour and black rear diffuser insert.

Inside, the First-Ever BMW i4 M50 is furnished with the M interior trim with Carbon Fibre trim finishers, M Anthracite Headliner, and features as such M Sport seats at the front, M seat belts, instrument panel in Sensatec, and electrical glass roof. The BMW IconicSounds Electric also provides for a particularly emotive experience by recreating the sporty “M” engine sound.

AC charging is rated at 11 kW (90-100% in 8.5 hours) and DC fast charging is rated at 200 kW (10-80% in 31 minutes), similar to that of the BMW i4 eDrive40.

The BMW i4 M50 comes with an 8-year/160,000 km battery warranty, whichever comes first.

Currently in the EV line-up for BMW in Malaysia is the BMW i4, BMW iX3, and BMW iX.
