BMW iNext and i4 Boast a 373-Mile Electric Range

The BMW iNext and i4 are due to arrive in 2021. However, based on spy shots and updates of BMW, the electric vehicles are nearly ready and are already undergoing winter testing. It was revealed that each car will get at least 600 km or 373 miles driving range on full charge.

The figures of BMW came from the Europeran WLTP test cycle. We are yet to get the official EPA ratings of the iNext and i4 which are bound for the US market though.

According to reports, the EVs were recently spotted while being tested near the Arctic Circle. The tests aim to evaluate how the batteries, motors and other components will react to extreme cold weather conditions.

The iNext is a crossover that will have a Level 3 autonomous driving capability. It is poised to become the German luxury car maker’s “technology flagship.” The unit is based on the Vision iNext concept vehicle introduced at the Los Angeles Auto Show in 2018. The plant tasked with the assembly of the product is located in Dingolfing, Germany. The production is slated to begin in 2021.

Meanwhile, the i4 is a four-door car that will be positioned in the “premium midrange segment” of the company. The highlights of the auto include a 0-62 mph sprint in under 4 seconds while offering a luxurious ride. The vehicle will be produced in Munich in 2021.

The iNext and i4 were seen together with the iX3. The iX3 EV will be assembled in China and is expected to be launched in 2020.

The new models are parts of BMW’s electrification efforts going to 2025. The company aims to offer at least 12 electric models in its dealerships by that period.

Top 4 Features 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

The all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 features a lot of new upgrades compared to the 2018 model. Among the updates include a new engine, larger space on the rear bed, changes on the dimensions and new trims.

Appearance

There’s no noticeable change in the design of the pickup truck. However, it gains a few chunks of metal that increases its length by 1.6 inches and wheelbase by 3.9 inches. The extra size translates to a roomier interior and a total bed space of 63 cu ft.

Despite its added measurements, the vehicle is 450 pounds lighter than its predecessor. Meanwhile, the V8 version of the auto can now tow as much as 13,200 pounds and haul up to 3,270 pounds.

Engine

At present, the Silverado has two new engines to choose from. The additional engines are the new 5.3-liter V8 with Dynamic Fuel Management and 2.7-liter inline-four units. The 2.7-liter engine replaces Chevy’s old 4.3-liter V6. A 3.0-liter “Duramax” inline-six version will arrive soon. Six-speed and eight-speed automatic transmission systems are available for the pickup truck.

The most fuel-efficient variant is the 2.7-liter-equipped Silverado 1500. The EPA figures of the vehicle are 20 mpg in city and 23 mpg in highway.

Pricing

The base trim of the 2019 Silverado pickup costs $31,290. The most expensive variant is the High Country trim with a starting price of $55,990. The amount can go up depending on the extra-packages and customization options installed by the owner though.

Tech

The new Silverado does not offer the same level of fancy equipment offered by its competitors but going for the LT will at least get you an eight-inch touchscreen that comes with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity plus a 4G LTE wireless integration for up to seven smart devices.
