Once Mercedes revealed the electric EQS Sedan, it was inevitable that BMW would follow with its own flagship electric sedan. Essentially an electric 7 Series, the i7 will be a technological powerhouse. It'll be incredibly powerful, too, with the range-topping i7 M60 expected to use two electric motors to produce a combined 650 horsepower. Together with all that power, the M60 should be good for a range of over 400 miles.
Less powerful eDrive40 and eDrive50 derivatives are expected to have a range of closer to 300 miles, but they'll be far from slow. All of these i7 models are expected to make use of the brand's xDrive all-wheel-drive system.
Although the i7 hasn't been officially revealed yet, spy shots indicate that it'll be another head-turner from BMW - whether that's a good or bad thing remains to be seen. Considering that the EQS starts at just over six figures, expect the new i7 to come in at a similarly lofty price point. The i7 should be revealed sometime next year as a 2023 model.
