BMW has revealed the 2021 BMW i1, an electric hatchback based on the latest 1 Series. The i1 is part of an electrification strategy that will see 12 electric models added to the BMW line-up by 2023.

Robert Irlinger, head of BMW’s i Division, has suggested that the move towards front wheel drive models, as has already happened with the third-generation 1 Series, allows for more flexibility in the design of less expensive, smaller electric vehicles and more choice for the customer.

Irlinger said BMW intend to offer the i1 hatchback with a choice of one or two electric motors. A more affordable model with a single motor driving the front wheels would be offered alongside a twin motor setup for higher performance and four-wheel drive.
