BMW didn’t provide any interior design images of the BMW i4, but the company will reportedly share more details on that front in the weeks to come.

Speaking on the release, Pieter Nota, Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, said, “With its sporty looks, best in class driving dynamics, and zero local emissions, the BMW i4 is a true BMW. It makes the heart of the BMW brand now beat fully electric.

Although BMW launched the iX3 last year, the EV didn’t make its way to North American shores. However, the BMW i4 is expected to change that when it arrives later this year. Expectedly, the i4 will be BMW’s flagship vehicle across global markets this year, including the U.S.
