All three are a mouthful when trying to pronounce their names out loud and as correctly as possible, but it’s more important to note the major highlights of these three zero-emission emissaries from Bavaria. All three of them are important representatives of the new generation of purely electric vehicles from the German automaker, for starters.

Thus, they all fully rely on BMW’s advanced 5th generation eDrive technology, a platform that “combines the electric motors, power electronics, charging system and high-voltage battery.” The automaker has been producing its own battery modules and high-voltage batteries since 2013, and the experience has allowed it to develop nice perks, such as the DC fast charging capability of up to 200 kW (AC charging at up to 11 kW).

As far as the 2022 i4 eDrive40 is concerned, the price might be the highest asset, with an MSRP of $55,400 (plus $995 destination for all models), 335 hp, and rear-wheel drive. BMW also estimates a range of up to 300 miles (483 km) on a single charge.

Meanwhile, the 2022 i4 M50 is labeled as M GmbH’s first-ever performance EV, and the appeal derives from the associated sporty perks, such as the two electric motors providing all-wheel-drive traction, the BMW-developed near-actuator wheel slip limitation system, or the launch control feature.

Naturally, all these won’t come cheap, as the version kicks off at $65,900. That said, it provides 536 hp through the Sport Boost function for more than ten seconds and can hit the 62 mph (100 kph) mark in 3.9 seconds on the way to a top speed of 140 mph (225 kph). In turn, the 81.5 kWh battery (net) will suffice for an EPA-estimated range of up to 245 miles (394 km).

Finally, the BMW iX xDrive50 flagship (a feisty iX M60 with over 600 hp will come later) has an MSRP of $83,200 and comes with a combined electric motor output of 516 hp, as well as AWD. The zero to 62 mph time surges to 4.6 seconds while the estimated range hits the 300-mile threshold. Of note, all three EVs aren’t expected at dealerships until sometime during the first quarter of 2022.
