BMW hasn’t formally unveiled the i7 still. So significantly, it’s been teased and mentioned BMW certainly isn’t hiding its existence. But no official expose usually means no formal specs, names, or prices. However, BMW just revealed a single these detail on its BMWUSA website. As of appropriate now, there’s at least one particular design variant confirmed — the BMW i7 xDrive60.
On BMW’s website, it reveals a couple of intriguing specifics about the BMW i7 xDrive60, more than enough that we can start to make some possible correct assumptions. For starters, it is going to have a BMW-claimed utmost vary of 324 miles. That vary figure tells us it could possibly have the similar 105.2 kWh usable battery pack as the BMW iX xDrive50, as that automobile also has a max array of 324 miles.
If it has the identical battery pack and the exact array, we’re assuming — alternatively safely — that it will have the identical powertrain, also. Anticipate at 516 horsepower and 564 lb-ft of torque from dual electrical motors, just like in the iX. Nevertheless, we wouldn’t be fully shocked if BMW gave it a couple excess ponies, just for seniority.
Wherever the BMW i7 xDrive60 will vary is in its style and design. When the i7 will also get huge kidney grills, they are likely to be illuminated, considerably like numerous of its regular ICE (Internal Combustion Motor) motor vehicles. In addition to the illuminated grille, the BMW i7 will also get what BMW phone calls crystal headlights, which will be built-in into its new break up headlight layout. I’m not completely confident how those people function but, in accordance to BMW, “Crafted with the most unique crystal glass, obtainable Crystal Headlights make a boldly high-class statement.”

Two other attention-grabbing bits about the interior. 1 is anything we now realized — it will be having the substantial theater monitor selection we saw at CES. The 31″, 8K resolution, 5G connected monitor will deliver epic rear seat entertainment to passengers, all though immersing them in the car’s wonderful Bowers & Wilkins encompass seem program. The monitor itself appears to fold up flat with the headliner when not in use and fold back again down when required.
The other fascinating bit is the all-new “BMW Interaction Bar”. In essence, it’s a wonderful on the lookout illuminated glass bar that operates horizontal throughout the dashboard. The bar features touch-sensitive panels that management the entrance air vents.
There will be supplemental types a bigger-performance product and a potential entry-degree model. The larger efficiency product was already teased to us in the course of an interview by BMW CTO Frank Weber. He claimed that the most impressive 7 Collection design will be all-electrical which prospects us to believe that we were being suitable about the BMW i7 M70 (or simply just BMW i7 xDrive70). Additional on that before long! However, for now the BMW i7 xDrive60 is all which is verified and these selections are all that BMW has launched. We’ll see the rest on April 14.
