BMW is adding an all-electric model to its flagship 7-Series sedan lineup as it pivots the German luxury brand EV to better compete against industry leader Tesla.

This is the BMW i7, an electric version of the firm’s luxury flagship saloon, and a car that underlines the German carmaker’s promise to switch to electrification.

The BMW 7-Series is a key part of the brand’s luxurious sedan lineup and the new seventh-generation model has embraced modern technology. Enter the i7, the first electric 7-Series, with two electric motors, 536 horsepower and a driving range of about 300 miles per charge.

The only powertrain is dubbed the xDrive60 and is similar to what you would find in a BMW iX SUV, except that it is a bit more powerful and the 101.7-kWh battery pack is a bit smaller. We drove a prototype of the i7 near BMW’s headquarters in Munich, Germany and can report that the i7’s acceleration is strong and its cabin is extremely quiet during cruising.

After nearly a decade of not releasing new electric vehicles, BMW has recently clashed with the iX, iX3, i4 and now the i7. The German automaker today unveiled the next generation 7 Series, but the electric version – known as the BMW i7 – is really stealing the show.

So much so that in Europe, BMW initially planned to offer only the electric version while versions equipped with each petrol engine and 48V soft-hybrid technology would be available with the i7 in the United States and China. BMW plans to follow the plug-in hybrid version in 2023.

The BMW i7 enables a large 101.7 kWh battery pack equipped with the latest electric powertrain technology from the German automaker that will suffice for the approximate EPA range of 625 km WLTP range and “up to 310 miles”.

BMW i7 Electric Design :

Speaking of size, the i7 is a seriously big car – far bigger even than the sixth generation BMW 7 series before it. At 5391mm long, 1950mm wide and 1544mm tall, the new i7 is 175mm longer than the Mercedes EQS and 32mm taller, although the EQS wins out when it comes to width by a mere 12mm. To put its size further into context, it’s the biggest BMW to date.

At the front, the design features a stylish new headlight design and kidney grille, synonymous with the BMW brand. The grille dominates the front end and is flanked by the main LED adaptive headlights, while a pair of slimmer LED lights, which are for day running, sit at the upper part of the front end.

The German car firm has also added an optional headlight called BMW Crystal Iconic Glow. It features Swarovski crystals to create an all-new light effect which BMW says – somewhat boastfully – is “unmatched by any other”.

At night 22 LED units light up the Swarovski crystals from behind and combine with the kidney grille’s contour lighting to create a special light graphic.

BMW says the i7 “features distinctive design accents” to highlight its all-electric character, with the front grille sporting the BMW i sub-brand logo, while elements of the car such as the front air intake and rear apron are finished in BMW i Blue.

BMW i7 Electric Interior and Features :

Step inside the i7 and you’re greeted with upmarket, premium materials and an array of tech features that will have you questioning if you’ve stepped into a local electrical goods retailer.

One of the main highlights of the i7’s interior is the incredible 31.3 inch, 8K touchscreen display that comes with a Bowers and Wilkins surround sound system and built-in touchscreen remotes in the door panels.

The BMW Theatre Screen – as it has been named – has Amazon Fire TV built-in, which allows passengers to access a number of different apps, as well as stream videos, play games, listen to music and watch downloaded programmes – all from the comfort of the rear cabin.

When the screen is unfolded from the roof for use, BMW has added an extra bit of, ahem, theatre by implementing an accompaniment composed by award-winning musician Hans Zimmer. As the screen is revealed, the sunblinds for the side windows and panoramic roof are closed and the rear cabin lighting is dimmed. No more need to go to the cinema, then.

5G connectivity via Personal eSim, up to 8K resolution, Amazon Fire TV compatibility, and integrated with the Sedan’s high-end sound system. Indulge in the available Luxury rear seating package with ventilated, heated, and massage comfort seats – perfect for revitalizing during long trips.

The BMW 7-series is a key part of the brand’s luxury sedan lineup and the new seventh-generation model has embraced modern technology in a big way. Enter the i7, the first electric 7-series, which features two electric motors, 536 horsepower, and around 300 miles of driving range per charge.

BMW i7 Electric Battery :

The only powertrain is dubbed the xDrive60 and is similar to what you would find in a BMW iX SUV, except that it is a bit more powerful and the 101.7-kWh battery pack is a bit smaller. We drove a prototype of the i7 near BMW’s headquarters in Munich, Germany and can report that the i7’s acceleration is strong and its cabin is extremely quiet during cruising.

The i7’s battery can be recharged at a DC fast charging station at a rate of up to 195 kilowatts, and BMW says that such a connection would net a driving range of about 80 miles in just 10 minutes of charging time. Buyers of the i7 will also receive complimentary charging sessions at Electrify America stations – many of which offer DC fast charging for the first three years of ownership.

BMW i7 Electric Price :

Look for the i7 to go on sale in fall 2022, but you might want to call your money guy now because the entry price for all this luxury and gadgetry is a staggering $119,300.
