2023 BMW i7 Overview
If you are planning to purchase an electric car, then knowing how well its performance is will be one of the most important aspects you need to consider—no matter how big the name of the carmaker is. This is important since EVs tend to be highly priced; and if you don’t know their features, who knows that the car would be the one not suitable for you.
As mentioned earlier, the 2023 BMW i7 is part of the BMW 7 Series. This is one of the most luxurious sedans out there with amazing features to offer.
The outer looks of this car may not be that different compared to the cars within the same series. That’s true—the only difference compared to the gas-powered 7 Series will be the powertrain. The luxury features, exterior, and interior design will be mostly the same.
Release Date and Price
As this is a luxury sedan with an electric powertrain, don’t be shocked if you find the price is high. According to sources, the car’s price will reach around $120,000.
Compared to competitors, this price can be considered equal and competitive enough. Moreover, the car has loads of outstanding features not only for the drivers and front-seaters. Even rear-seaters can have the 2023 BMW i7 to be just like a moving theater.
For the year production 2023, the xDrive60 is the only version of i7 that is soon to be released… at least for now. Sources mentioned that the car is expected to be released in fall 2022.
The Powertrain Aspect
The electric version of the 7 Series, called as i7, has two electric motors and one battery pack which can compete with the battery from Mercedes-Benz EQs, Porsche Taycan, and Tesla Model S. Despite the lack of design differences from the gas-powered cars, the i7 can be one of the most powerful electric that the carmaker releases.
With two motors and one large battery pack of 101.7 kWh, this combo will make a powerful combination of 536 HP. The 2023 BMW i7 xDrive60 is equipped with an all-wheel-drive drivetrain which will help you a lot in making a powerful move.
Sources mentioned that using the powertrain and drivetrain, you will be able to attain a 60-mph speed in less than 5 seconds (4.5 seconds to be exact, or less). Interestingly, despite the roaring acceleration, the car doesn’t sound to make a huge effort. Even from the inside, it is pretty quiet compared to sports cars.
What About the Exterior and Interior?
Regarding the outer looks, you can get some insights from the gas-powered cars from the BMW 7 Series. This means that overall modernism and luxury are things you will see from the outside.
The lineup is offering you various colors, mostly in metallic finish. This alone will help you to make the car look elegant already. Combine it with the modernish body of the car, cool wheels, and excellent headlights—you got the BMW i7 to be the car everyone wants.
The car’s exterior may not be striking different. Inside, the car is not that different from what you can see on other 7 Series cars. However, that doesn’t mean you got bad things in this luxury car.
As you enter the car, you will see that the seats, dashboard, as well as steering wheel, are covered in leather upholstery. If you plan to customize the color of the upholstery, well—you can do it with some bucks to spend. Aside from the seats, the techs are what you should consider as outstanding from this car.
A spacious cabin, combined with the Executive Lounge package (recommended to have) will ensure you maximum comfort while driving in this car.
