High i4 demand: BMW introduces Saturday shifts

BMW plans to introduce Saturday shifts at its Munich plant in Q1 2022 to keep up with high demand for its new i4 electric model. The wait for the electric sedan is currently said to be around nine months, but could climb to a year soon.

Just over a week ago, BMW reported that it had handed over the first examples of the all-electric i4 to customers. The electric sedan has been in production at BMW's Munich plant since the end of October. As we all know, the model is an electric sedan the size of a BMW 3 Series, which is intended to electrify the core of BMW's model range. The i4 was launched in November alongside the flagship iX SUV. We were recently able to test the new electric sedan.
