2023 BMW i7 To Debut In April: Official

It will be the most powerful member of the new 7 Series family.

For the past few months, BMW has been aggressively testing the i7, and it appears that a formal premiere is on the way very soon. The electric vehicle will arrive in April this year, according to a new and extensive press statement (353 pages) summarising the company’s financial results for 2021. There is no specific date given, but we do know that the premiere will be held in New York, Munich, and Beijing.

“All of us at BMW are looking forward to the market introduction of the new BMW 7 Series this year: progressive, digital, and innovative, it is also the only luxury sedan to offer customers a choice of drivetrain variations,” reads the official release from BMW. The most powerful option, the BMW i7, is, by the way, totally electric. We’ll present it in April in New York, Munich, and Beijing, representing the world’s largest regions.”

This car already sounds quite intriguing, and prior teases have revealed that the i7 will be powered by a dual-motor electric system with all-wheel drive. If our preliminary information is true, the i7’s powertrain will be shared with the iX M60, which means two electric motors with a peak output (in Sport mode) of 610 horsepower (449 kilowatts) and immediate torque of 811 pound-feet (1,100 Newton-meters). BMW has only stated that the electric 7 Series will have “greater over 600 horsepower” at this time.

Given that the i7 will be the most powerful of the family, it will be interesting to see how powerful the combustion-powered versions of the new 7 Series will be. Various sources claim that the top-of-the-line 760i would be powered by an electric V8 engine producing more than 600 horsepower (447 kW), but nothing has been proven as of yet.

The front end design of the i7 will be quite similar to the BMW iX, with two very massive kidney grilles, according to a few new teaser photographs. BMW claims that the electric vehicle “offers the best driving experience in the segment” in a video presentation. The i7 will be outfitted with Level 3 autonomous driving hardware, according to the Bavarian business, for individuals who do not want to spend time behind the wheel.

The i7 is expected to offer up to 305 miles of EPA electric range (580–610 km according to WLTP) on a single charge, according to BMW. These are forecasts based on the vehicle’s current development phase, not confirmed figures.

The first-ever BMW i7 is currently undergoing final testing, and its full and official premiere is just a few weeks away. The iX1 will be released later this year, according to BMW’s financial results presentation, expanding the company’s BEV model lineup. In a related point, BMW delivered 103,854 fully electric vehicles worldwide last year, increasing 133.2 percent from 2020.
