Putting the BMW i4's M50 range to the test over a two-day road trip

Luke 'Perry' Pereira

Is the i4 M50 actually quicker than an M3 Competition?

We shipped off Luke and his kitchen sink to Melbourne to check out BMW’s first M-branded EV – the i4 M50. We already reviewed the eDrive40 and it certainly impressed, but how will the M50 fare? Will it run out of range during the two-day road trip? How much faster is the M50 compared to the eDrive40? Watch on and find out!

Check out our written review of the BMW i4 M50 here.
