The design is all that we can talk about this car now. To start with the front of the car. We have an iconic kidney grille of BMW. this grill is now tweaked and made elongated and is now vertical. The lights of the vehicle have this aggressive stance and they carry the iconic design of the BMW lineup. Below the headlights, there is the air intake. This might be a functional intake with a dual purpose. It might cool the motor and also for aerodynamic. Moving to the sides the vehicle has a design of a coupe. Although it is a Gran Coupe it gets a four-door design. The wheels have a very futuristic layout. It also gets a complete panoramic sunroof. The rear design of the vehicle is very iconically BMW. The BMW i4 Concept will translate into a very sharp looking vehicle. The car gets LED taillights.
Domagoj Dukec, Head of BMW Design, said, “The design of the BMW Concept i4 shows fantastic proportions, a powerfully expressive character and, of course, a lot of attention to detail. With the BMW Curved Display, we have redefined BMW’s signature driver focus in an extremely elegant way. At the same time, the Concept i4 transports a feeling of sustainable driving pleasure.”
