To drive or to be driven – 2023 BMW i7 Review

Like its competitors, BMW has recently introduced a new lineup of electric vehicles. BMW’s new and improved flagship sedan is now offered in multiple powertrains, including the all-new pure electric i7. When BMW first announced the i7, we weren’t sure what to think. However, what really matters is invisible to the eyes. The i7 introduces a new distinctive front end like its gas-powered sibling, and a cabin full of new features including the available Rear Executive Lounge Seating Package featuring the unique Theater Screen.

Not surprising at this point that new BMW’s are far from pretty, but the i7 still manages to stand out from the crowd. Of course, we expected the large kidney grilles, the face receives new LED headlights similar to the new X7, but the biggest addition is purely on the inside.

Interior

Behind closed doors, indulge your senses in the soft Tartufo Merino Leather. Seating is extremely comfortable and supportive, with ample legroom for every front and rear passenger. The i7 interior is a stunning example of luxury and innovation.

Passengers in the rear get a whole new first class experience with the electric reclining seats, footrests and the BMW Theater Screen. Providing your passengers with this experience does have a price. When you’re looking at a car in this bracket, the available Rear Executive Lounge Seating package carries a hefty price tag of $7250 but its worth every penny.

Electric Reclining Seats & Footrests

For the first time ever, BMW introduced a feature that blows its competitors out the door with the new BMW Theater Screen. It revolutionized the way passengers could entertain themselves over short or long drives. A 31″ ultra wide display with resolution up to 8K gives you a sharp and crystal clear quality, making it an immersive viewing experience.

The most important seat gets the latest version of BMW’s Idrive 8 Infotainment system. Designed to offer a more intuitive and personalized experience for the driver. This new system features a modern curved display that extends across the dashboard, also featuring glass controls that exhibits premium and elegant craftsmanship from every angle.

The most notable feature of the i7 starts on the rear end. It’s sleek and aerodynamic, with a distinctive shape that sets it apart from other luxury sedans on the market. The taillights are positioned at the outer edges, creating a wider and more imposing appearance. In addition to the striking design, the rear end also boasts new advanced technological features like rear wheel steering. Rear wheel steering has been introduced to enhance the driving experience, allowing the rear wheels to turn in the opposite direction to the front wheels. Which results in better handling and stability at high speeds, something we all want when it comes to driving a large vehicle. We had the chance to take the i7 for a short drive and we are quite impressed on how well the 5900lb sedan handled itself. The powerful 536hp electric motors delivers instant torque and acceleration when needed at 0-60 in just about 4.5 seconds. The turns felt tight and of course, noise was minimal as to be expected in an electric vehicle.

Now it’s time for us to go over the most important part of the i7. The flagship eco-friendly sedan has shockingly fast charging capability. The ability to charge up to 80% in just 40 minutes using a DC fast charger, meaning drivers can quickly top up their battery while on the go without waiting hours at a charging station. The total range of 318 miles is more than enough for your average driver. In case you’re looking to take the i7 on a long trip, not to worry because the i7 can get up to 90 miles on a 10 minute fast charge!

Don’t forget the perks of going green! BMW offers 3 years complimentary on-the-go charging with Electrify America.

Pricing

The pricing of this car is a topic of interest for many people who are considering the changeover to EV vehicles. With the base price of around $120,000, this model has a few packages equipped, giving the final total of $145,000. While the pricing may be higher than some of its competitors, but it is well worth it especially with its high potential fuel savings, advanced technology, long-range capability, and comfortable interior, making it one of the best electric cars available today.

Overview And Conclusion

Overall, we think the i7 is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a luxurious electric car that offers both performance and sustainability. The i7 is for sure one of the more unique vehicles that BMW has to offer! For more information on the 2023 BMW i7, contact our automotive experts now!
