The car will have an electric range of up to 435 miles and promises to 'redefine' zero-to-60 mph benchmarks.

BMW has confirmed plans to bring the i4 to market by 2021.

The i4 is expected to be heavily inspired by the i Vision Dynamics concept (pictured) that debuted last year, akin to a 4 Series Gran Coupe. It will have a range of up to 700 km (435 miles), presumably according to a European test cycle.

"The leading factors that will set it apart are fantastic design, which is very different to anything else on the road and the fact that it is lighter and therefore more dynamic than anything we see on the market today, thanks to the materials we will use," BMW boss Harald Krüger said today in Paris, as quoted by .

The car also promises to showcase the company's latest technology and "redefine what is possible today" for zero-to-60 mph times.

The company is working on at least a dozen pure battery-powered EVs to launch by 2025. The i4 will follow behind the iX3 crossover, due in 2020.
