BMW i4 M50 and iX3 officially in South Africa

The electric vehicle landscape continues to expand in South Africa with two new editions from BMW. Earlier this month, the German manufacturer launched the i4 M50 and iX3 in Waterfall, Johannesburg.

The Mail & Guardian had an opportunity to drive the i4 M50, BMW’s first EV with an M badge, in France earlier this year. The i4 will not make its way to SA, with the i4 M50 all-wheel drive being the only variant available locally.

Pricing has been revealed for the 400kW four-door gran coupé M50 – R1.6-million. This includes a complimentary wallbox home charger and free charging at any BMW Group-branded charging stations, including Mini outlets.

As previously reported, it features the company’s fifth-generation eDrive technology with scalable architecture and high-voltage, high-energy-density battery packs, which reduce the number of components. It supports speeds of up to 205kW of fast DC charging, although chargers in SA are not capable of delivering that speed, yet.
