Introducing the very first BMW i7
Another first in the world of BMW. The fully electric BMW i7 combines effortless electric performance and multisensory state-of-the-art entertainment to produce an unforgettable motoring experience.
A cutting-edge edition to the flagship BMW 7 Series, the BMW i7 looks to create new ways for driver and passengers to experience unsurpassed long-distance comfort, and the very best in electric technology for a truly luxurious drive filled with pleasure.
With multiple charging options, innovative technology, characterful driving dynamics and performance only a BMW can give, the i7 pushes the envelope for BMW i yet again.
Design and Practicality
A unique exterior design is present with the i7, possessing a distinct style which adheres to a new era of BMW.
The iconic kidney grille design has a new presentation, using illumination along with Iconic Glow crystal headlights which use Swarovski crystal elements to further radiate individuality and style.
Sweeping side lines help transform the BMW i7's large proportions into an aesthetically pleasing design, with the iconic Hofmeister kink full of heritage encapsulated via a chrome element, like that of a precious jewel.
Concluding with the rear of the i7, L-shaped lights give the cutting-edge look a touch of extra sleekness. Subtle blue detailing around the i7 signifies the car's unmistakable BMW i nature and character.
Technology and Safety
With My Modes, the interior allows you to enjoy an interplay of light, sound and climate optimised to match your mood with the i7.
BMW IconicSounds Electric lets you experience a driving sound composed by Hans Zimmer for every drive mode, ensuring that every drive becomes a proper event.
This is joined by the multi-sensory vehicle experience of BMW iDrive with the latest BMW Operating System 8 and with BMW Remote Software Upgrade, meaning your i7 will always be right up-to-date.
These are further complemented by the BMW Curved Display to fully ensure the interior is a digital feast, whilst rear passengers can enjoy 5.5-inch touch controlled displays in the doors, whilst an optional BMW Theatre Screen ensures they are also treated to a state-of-the-art viewing experience.
Safety is perfectly taken care of too. Manoeuvre Assistant, which allows automated parking, is joined by emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist, along with adaptive cruise control with semi-autonomous driving.
Range and Performance
There are a trio of models in the i7 range to choose from. These are the BMW i7 xDrive60 Excellence, BMW i7 xDrive60 M Sport and BMW i7 M70 xDrive.
With any specification, you will be able to enjoy and take advantage of the security of all-wheel drive, deployed by the use of an ultra-clever 1-speed automatic transmission.
This ensures unbelievable acceleration of 0 to 62mph in just 4.7 seconds for the Excellence and M Sport, whilst the M70 version is even faster, taking just 3.7 seconds to go from 0 to 62mph - giving the i7 sports car realms of pace in any guise.
This electrifying performance is perfectly complemented with the ability to travel between 348 and 387 pure electric miles from a single charge, dependent on specification and conditions.
You can top up your BMW i7 from 10 percent to 80 percent in only 34 minutes via the use of a 195kW high-power charging point.
A Mode 3 charging cable and BMW Charging card allows you to charge throughout Europe at over 270,000 charging points, too.
Home charging from a wallbox takes 2 hours 27 minutes to give 62 miles (100km). A standard charge from a household socket will take a little over 8 hours.
