It is reported that an environmentally friendly German novelty will be able to boast 670 hp. power, as well as a range of 579 km. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h will be about three seconds. A new generation of executive sedan will be shown either at the end of 2021, or at the beginning of 2022.

Less than two months ago, there was evidence that the next generation of the BMW 7 Series executive sedan could have an all-electric version. The information came from verified sources, and now it is reported that the car will be offered in two versions, which will differ from each other in engine power.

 It is reported that in its basic version, the Bavarian novelty will receive the designation i7, as well as a 100 kWh battery, due to which, the power reserve can be about 600 kilometers. The maximum power of this model should be about 550 horsepower (410 kilowatts).

A more productive modification (BMW i7S) should become the 7th most powerful production sedan in the history of the model – the electric motor will have an estimated power of 670 hp. (500 kW). An all-wheel drive system will also be available. The battery with a capacity of 120 kW * h should provide a range of the same 600 km. We expect that the acceleration of such a sedan to 100 km \ h will be less than 3.91 seconds.

A new generation of the executive sedan of the 7th series will be offered with traditional ICEs, as well as hybrid engines. The presentation of the model should take place at the end of 2021 or at the beginning of 2022. It is possible that the Bavarian brand decide to introduce a new product in the form of a concept at one of the upcoming motor shows.
