2024 BMW i4 price and specs: Entry model joins range

The all-electric BMW i4 Gran Coupe range has grown, thanks to the addition of a new base eDrive35 variant that sees the price of entry drop below $90,000 for the first time.

Priced from $85,900 before on-road costs, the base i4 comes in below the $89,332 Luxury Car Tax threshold for fuel-efficient vehicles, and eligible for the Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT) exemption if you’re a fleet or novated lease buyer.

The existing eDrive40 and M50 variants retain pricing from the most recent rise in March, listing for $102,900 and $133,900 before on-road costs respectively.

Servicing and Warranty

BMW’s local line-up is covered by a five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty. The high-voltage battery in electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids is warranted for eight years or 160,000km – whichever comes first.

The i4 is available with a six-year Service Inclusive Basic plan, which is priced at $1980.


The i4 wears a four-star ANCAP safety rating, making it the only model in BMW’s line-up without a five-star rating.

It scored 87 per cent for adult occupant protection, 89 per cent for child occupant protection and 71 per cent for vulnerable road user protection – all against 2022 ANCAP and Euro NCAP test criteria.

However, its 62 per cent safety assist score fell below the five-star threshold. It failed to pass both the ‘AEB – Junction Assist’ and ‘Lane Support Systems’ tests.

ANCAP claims to have offered BMW Australia the chance to submit a local-market i4 for further testing with a chance at five stars, because in this market the car comes with more advanced driver-assist systems as standard than it does in Europe. It claims BMW declined, hence it was stuck with a mirrored Euro NCAP score.

“A four star safety rating also carries through from European testing to battery-electric BMW i4 vehicles sold in Australia and New Zealand,” ANCAP said.

“BMW advised ANCAP that the AEB and lane support systems fitted to locally-specified vehicles is of a higher standard than the systems tested in Europe, yet BMW did not put the vehicle forward to ANCAP for verification testing to confirm performance of these systems.”

Standard safety features include:

  • Autonomous emergency braking
    • Car-to-car
    • Vulnerable road users
    • Junction assist
  • Driving Assistant Professional
    • Adaptive cruise control with stop/go
    • Steering and Lane Control Assistant
