The all-electric 2023 BMW i7 and 2023 BMW 7 Series have only recently made their global debuts. Internal combustion is used in the first vehicle; the 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six or the 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 both produce 375 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. The i7 has two electric motors that work together to produce 536 horsepower and 549 pound-feet of torque. It also has a 101.7 kWh battery that provides a 300-mile driving range.

The BMW i7 configurator, which can cost over $160,000 when fully optioned, recently went live. The BMW Group Plant Dingolfing in Bavaria, Germany, has now officially completed the production of the i7 and its gas-powered counterpart. This factory also assembles the 4 Series, 5 Series, 6 Series, 8 Series, the all-electric iX, and bodies for Rolls-Royce.

“Our new BMW 7 Series is the first luxury sedan in the world to offer customers a choice between three types of drive. Whether combustion-powered, fully electric, or soon plug-in hybrid, we have the adaptable production structures and exceptional integration skills we need to produce such a wide variety of drives effectively “said Milan Nedeljkovic, a production board member for BMW AG.

Apart from the fact that it will have 483 horsepower, bridging the gap between the 740i and 760i, BMW hasn’t provided many details about the 750e PHEV model. Though their drivetrains are vastly different, the 7 Series and i7 share a platform and even similar styling. Mercedes-Benz did not do this, as they divided the S-Class and EQS into two separate models.

For the Dingolfing to be ready for 7 Series and i7 production, BMW invested more than €300 million (roughly $312 million). According to Plant Director Christoph Schroder, “We are completely flexible and able to switch between drive variants for the BMW 7 Series.” This means we can use our plant capacity to the fullest extent and produce everything in accordance with the demand for the different drives.

By the end of this year, approximately 50% of Dingolfing’s production will be powered in some way. The i5, an all-electric 5 Series variant that will be manufactured alongside the i7, will be introduced by BMW the following year.
