BMW M750Le will be the first hybrid M Performance modelSeptember 17, 2019
BMW is committed to electrification – its new products almost speak for themselves. So, the iNext model will be the first full electric car of the brand, and soon everything (yes, even a modest X2) will have an electrification element.
But the first hybrid model in the M Performance portfolio may not meet expectations. Reports say the 7-Series could be the pioneer of the M Sport PHEV.
BMWBlog says BMW will offer a performance-oriented version of the M750Le when the next-generation model with the G20 index appears. Using a traditional ICE and electric motor, the M750Le can develop power up to 550 hp. and a torque of 800 Nm.
When using fifth-generation BMW batteries, which will first be available on the electric X3, the M750Le must have a much greater range than its predecessor. The current Plug-In Hybrid 7-Series gets a range of just 26 km exclusively on electric traction. The M750Le will be available with both an extended and a standard wheelbase.
It also became known that the electric BMW 7-Series, dubbed the i7, should appear in 2021. The battery capacity can vary from 80 to 120 kW / h with an estimated range of 700 km.
