We now know a lot more about BMW’s efforts at an all-electric sedan. The i4 Concept is bold, futuristic, and efficient, but it won’t get the once-purported 400-mile range. Instead, it will deliver an EPA-estimated range of 270 miles from an 80kWh battery pack. While that’s no Tesla-fighter in terms of single-charge range, it’s still very impressive and should eliminate most folks’ range anxiety for daily use. The i4 Concept is potent, for sure, with 390kW/530 horsepower that will allow it to rocket to 60 mph in about four seconds, or faster than most sports cars. The performance and range are more than palatable, but the enormous kidney grille is polarizing (“I like big teeth, and I cannot lie!”). The rest of the body is very BMW including the sloping greenhouse, the profile, and the Hofmeister kink at the rear side glass frame. The cabin is truly futuristic with a BMW i8-inspired cockpit, an all-glass roof, a huge curved screen, beautiful mixed materials, and massive amounts of airiness. The i4 is getting closer to actual production, and this is the closest example we’ve seen to a workable product, and it’s pretty exciting.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
