The network has a render on the electric BMW i7 sedanApril 14, 2020
Artists have presented what will be the all-electric version of the flagship sedan BMW 7-Series. The car will compete with the Mercedes-Benz EQS – an analogue of the usual S-class.
The Bavarian company is going all-in when it comes to electric cars – the automaker plans to offer fully electric versions of its main models over the next few years. And obviously, he also plans to make an all-electric version of his flagship 7-Series sedan, a model that is likely to be called the i7 and will be different from the regular “seven”, just like the iX3 crossover is different from the regular X3, which uses traditional internal combustion engines.
The authoritative edition of BMW Blog reports that the Bavarian manufacturer has officially confirmed plans for the i7 during a press conference held in his hometown of Munich.
The novelty will not be based on the current version of the BMW 7-Series, but on the next generation of a large luxury sedan.
The machine will be offered in at least two versions. If in one version a battery with a capacity of 80 kWh is installed, then the other will receive a battery of 120 kWh, which should be enough to overcome up to 600 km on a single charge. Electric sedan will be offered only in the version with a long wheelbase.
Most likely, the upcoming i7 sedan will be much like the version of a luxury car that is currently on the market. The electric novelty will compete for the buyer with the German Mercedes EQS, as well as the electric version of the new generation British Jaguar XJ sedan.
