With a length of 4.78 meters, the BMW i4 is not exactly a small car, but still pretty much in the dimensions of the middle class. The current 3 Series sedan, for example, is only seven centimeters shorter, the Audi A4 measures 4.76 meters. Both competitors are models with conventional engines. When it comes to sedans and coupés under Stromern, it should be clear who BMW is aiming for.
This superiority of the BMW i4, which is almost ten centimeters longer than the Tesla Model 3 and Polestar 2, becomes a disadvantage when maneuvering. The BMW i4 has a turning circle of 12.5 meters, the Polestar 2 only needs 11.5 meters, the Tesla Model 3 12.1 meters.
