BMW 4 Series LCI Update: What to Expect in 2024

BMW fans are eager to know when the 4 Series will receive a Life Cycle Impulse (LCI) update but it’s not happening anytime soon. Production of LCI models is reportedly scheduled to begin in March 2024. This update is expected to include styling changes for the G22 Coupe and G23 Convertible. It could also preview the rumored LCI updates for the M3 and M4 models.

The 4 Series Gran Coupe, G26, will also receive a similar update later in the same year and production is set to begin in July. It is uncertain if the changes will also affect the fully electric i4, but it is likely given BMW’s tendency to keep the design of ICE and EV versions similar. Examples of this can be seen in the X1/iX1 and 7 Series/i7 pairs.

BMW plans to give the 3 Series one more generation with combustion engines. They will be built on an evolution of the CLAR platform, and should be available for purchase in 2034 in some regions. The Sedan will be codenamed G50, and the Touring will be G51.

It’s also important to note that while Rolls-Royce will sell only EVs from 2030 and MINI shortly after that, BMW intends to keep combustion engines in its portfolio well into the next decade. This means that buyers will have the choice to continue buying ICE-powered vehicles in addition to electric vehicles.
