BMW has cut the price of entry to its i4 electric car range with the addition of a new eDrive35 model.

    The 2024 i4 eDrive35 will hit Australian showrooms before the end of 2023, with a sticker price of $85,900 before on-road costs.

    That means the i4 is now below the $89,332 fuel efficient vehicles cutoff for the Luxury Car Tax – and is eligible for the Fringe Benefits Tax exemption if you’re a fleet or novated lease buyer.

    Under the skin, the i4 eDrive35 features a 67kWh lithium-ion battery pack good for a claimed 430km of range.

    11kW AC and 180kW DC charging is standard. With 210kW of power and 400Nm of torque, the eDrive 35 hits 100km/h in six seconds from standstill.

    More expensive i4 models feature a larger 84kWh battery pack, and more power from their electric motors.

    Standard equipment in the i4 eDrive35 includes:

    • 18-inch alloy wheels
    • Tyre repair kit
    • LED headlights with auto high-beam
    • Adaptive cruise control with stop/go
    • Parking assistant
    • 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster
    • 14.9-inch touchscreen infotainment system
      • Wireless smartphone mirroring
      • DAB+ digital radio
    • Head-up display
    • Tri-zone climate control
    • Power front seats
    • Sensatec faux leather trim
    • Keyless entry and start
    • Ambient interior lighting
    • Wireless phone charger
    • 12-month Chargefox subscription
