The i7 initially arrived in India last year in a single xDrive60 variant. It is powered by two electric motors and has a 101.7kWh lithium-ion battery. With 536bhp of maximum power and 745Nm of peak torque, the vehicle can reach from 0 to 100km/h in 4.5 seconds. Furthermore, the electric 7 series can be charged with up to 11kW on an AC system and up to 195kW on a DC system.

BMW i7: Styling Cues

The BMW i7 and the ICE 7 Series have similar design elements. This is especially evident in the larger kidney grille illuminated surrounds and the smaller, sharper two-element crystal LED headlamps. Its bold appearance is attributed to its long bonnet, erect face, and sharper lines. The i7 receives the blue highlights, while the 7 Series gets an M Sport look. BMW offers a range of wheel sizes for the "7" series, from 20-inch alloys to 21-inch M Sport wheels, with darker exterior elements.

Some of the distinctive styling cues of the i7 M70 xDrive are the flush-fitting door handles, slim LED tail lamps, and a dual-tone exterior paint finish. Along with other M-specific elements like side skirts, front side panels, ORVMs, and a rear spoiler, the M emblem is visible on the grille. The M70 variant also features 21-inch M light alloy wheels.

The all-electric model's safety suite includes seven airbags, cornering brake control, ABS with EBD, 3-point seatbelts for each passenger, dynamic stability control, a tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS), and advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) features like lane change warning, blind spot assistance, and rear crossing traffic warning.
