The i4’s primary competitor is the Tesla Model 3, the only other premium electric sedan in the price range and the two vehicles are roughly the same size with similar technology.

It also goes up against the Kia EV6, which some say is a crossover but drives and feels more like a hatchback.

The Genesis GV60 rides a bit higher, but offers a luxurious cabin as well.

And the Audi E-Tron GT represents the next step up in performance and style.

The Ford Mustang Mach-E also offers an all-wheel drive performance variant, named the GT.
