August 8th, 2022 by


The BMW Group continues to broaden its portfolio of electrically powered vehicles with its latest addition: the new BMW i4 eDrive35. The BMW i4 eDrive 35 further expands the BMW i4 family, joining the highly successful BMW i4 M50 xDrive and BMW i4 eDrive40. The i4 eDrive35 is available for order in Canada as of today, starting at $54,990 CAD.

The BMW i4 eDrive35 comes with all the latest BMW Gen5 eDrive powertrain technology already found in its BMW i4 siblings and BMW iX. It also features the same BMW Curved Display with BMW iDrive8 operating system found in these models.

The BMW i4 eDrive35 will begin production in November at the BMW Group Munich plant. First units are expected to arrive in Canada in the first quarter of 2023.

The i4 eDrive35 is equipped with a single, electrically excited synchronous motor, in a rear-drive configuration, producing an estimated 281 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. This motor propels the i4 eDrive35 from 0 to 100 km/h in an estimated 6 seconds and to a top speed of 190 km/h.

The new battery in the i4 eDrive35 has a net capacity of 66 kWh, with a total gross capacity of 70.2 kWh. The i4 eDrive35 can charge at a maximum of 180 kW on DC current and 11 kW on AC current. Based on early testing on DC current, owners can expect to charge the HV battery from 10% to 80% in as little as 32 minutes. All versions of the i4 operate on the same 400V architecture.

The i4 eDrive35 will launch in Canada with a starting price of $54,990 CAD. Consequently, it is anticipated the vehicle will qualify for the $5,000 purchase incentive as part of the Federal iZEV Program, as well as all current provincial government incentives, namely in British Columbia and Quebec. These incentives range from $3,000 in BC to $7,000 in Quebec.

“We are happy to be so quickly expanding the offering for one of our most important products of the year, the i4,” said Andrew Scott, Director of Brand Management with BMW Group Canada. “We strive to offer Canadians more choice and doing so in one of the fastest-growing areas of the business is crucial.”

With the BMW i4 eDrive35, the BMW Group’s global portfolio of fully electric cars covers six model lines with 10 powertrain derivatives in total. The BMW Group is aiming for fully electric vehicles to account for 50% of its global sales by 2030.
