BMW's first "M" electric car has made its Malaysian debut
The first-ever BMW i4 M50, which is the first M-badged electric vehicle, has made its Malaysian debut in conjunction with the 50th Anniversary of BMW M with an asking price of RM430,800 on the road minus insurance.
To commemorate the occasion, the BMW i4 M50 will arrive with the BMW M 50 Years Emblems as standard. 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 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 Iconic Sounds Electric also provides for a particularly emotive experience by recreating the sporty “M” engine sound.
Two BMW M eDrive motors are implemented in the First-Ever BMW i4 M50 – one each for the front and rear axles. This configuration allows for an extremely dynamic all-wheel drive experience, with an impressive output of 544 hp and maximum torque of 795 Nm in Sport Boost mode.
Capable of sprinting from naught to 100 in just 3.9 seconds, the car's top speed is capped at 225 km/h.
