Review

The BMW i4 M50 is very fast, has a beautifully supple ride and the best infotainment system in the class. Factor in impressive practicality and a plush interior and it's a compelling alternative to a Tesla Model 3 Performance. However, while we're yet to try the entry-level i4 eDrive40, that version's greater range and lower price could see it becoming our large electric car of choice.

The range-topping M50 benefits from 19in wheels, adaptive M suspension, M sport brakes, a ‘gurney flap’ rear spoiler, a head-up display and a plethora of driver assistance functions.

This range-topping variant combines ridiculous acceleration (0-62mph takes just 3.9sec) with a long range between charges. Well worth a look, but we suspect the cheaper eDrive40 will be fast enough and it will get you even further on a battery charge.
