The BMW i4 does not exploit the space under its long bonnet. It’s (almost) done with this company’s adaptable frunk.

The advantage of the electric car is also to rid the engine bay of cumbersome mechanics. At least if the platform allows it, which is not always the case. By abandoning its thermal engines, the 4 Series which serves as the basis for the BMW i4 could offer a trunk in the front. But she does not, and prefers to hide the gap between the wheels with a plastic cover.

This is what undoubtedly gave ideas to the German company Wokeby who imagined an adaptable frunk under the hood of the BMW i4. Still in the development stage, this solution will consist of a large plastic container with a volume close to 40 l, to be fixed to the reinforcements of the chassis.

A price close to 270 € for this frunk BMW i4

If its integration cannot reach the level of finish of an original frunk, as is the case on the Tesla Model 3 or the Ford Mustang Mach-e, among others, this equipment will necessarily be useful in addition to the rear trunk of 490 l. The owners of the sedan will be able to store cables or a few other things there.

The frunk for the BMW i4 will soon be added to the catalog of the German manufacturer. No price has yet been indicated, but it could be displayed at around €270, like the frunk for the iX3 already available. Note that it will only be compatible with versions eDrive35 and eDrive40, which do not have a front engine.
