BMW's 2020 i6 Is Rumored To Be All Electric
The BMW i6 is rumored to be an all-electric sedan that will be released in 2020. This is following the carmaker's i5 all-electric crossover that will be making its way in 2018.
Rumors have it that BMW is making an all-electric sedan-type car that would be similar in size to its 3-series offerings, which would be known as the i6. It is said to be released in 2020 as a 2021 model right after the BMW i5's debut in 2017 as a 2018 model. These rumors seem to have come from a magazine article in Automobile saying that the BMW 2016 i5 will be followed by an all-electric sedan-type car that is expected to debut in 2017 as a 2018 model. If the rumors are indeed true, this would resolve the conflicting information about the company making a small all-electric vehicle.
BMW states that there is indeed a small all-electric car under the works that would be known as the i6. The car will debut in 2021 after the i5 all-electric crossover's debut in 2017 as a 2018 model.
The BMW i6 will be built on an all-new flat-four component set specifically made for electric vehicles. Automobile magazine states that the car will have lots of bits and pieces of carbon fiber materials embedded on the car to make it as lightweight as possible.
The all-electric i6 is rumored to have at least two electric motors and perhaps as many as four, one on each wheel, and will be using a high-capacity battery pack made up of lithium-polymer battery cells. The rumored vehicle, as said by Automobile magazine, will be making its way sometime in the middle of 2020 as a 2021 model, most likely.
This is the part where it gets tricky and very interesting. By this time, BMW will be updating its hybrid plug-in lineups. From a 15- to 20-mile EV range, there are rumors that the company is going to double or triple the range capacity of its electric vehicles. Although these are very interesting stories and ideas, 2020 is still four years off and reality comes until there is something solid that is seen and experienced.
