Will join the i3, i8 and upcoming i5 in the company’s electric range.
With German media reporting that BMW could roll out afour-door sportscar named the i9 as early as 2016, it’s time for the renderingsto begin. According to reports, the company will start to act on itstrademarking of the full i1 to i9 range of nameplates with an upcoming sports sedanwhich could be a larger 4-door version of the i8. It's expected to employ asimilar hybrid approach, while improving technology to offer better performance and lower emissions.
However, while this render looks good, we expect the production i9 toadd more than just a couple of rear doors to the already-sold out i8. As asedan or four-door coupe, it will add larger dimensions and more interiorspace, setting it apart from the i5, which has yet to be detailed.
