The BMW i7, the Bavarian automaker’s new flagship luxury sedan, was launched earlier this year with prices starting at ¥19.5 million (ex-showroom). The i7 shares its underpinnings with the new-generation BMW 7 Series, and both models are based on the CLAR platform. The i7 marks a major design change from the previous-generation 7 Series, with a bold front end including split headlights and a new large kidney grille design.

The big update this time comes in the cabin, which is more luxurious this time around, with an optional 31.3-inch 8K Cinema Screen display for rear passengers. The feature list also includes a 14.9-inch touchscreen infotainment display and a 12.3-inch digital instrument console, both of which are part of a larger curved display on the dash.

The seats in the BMW i7 are upholstered in the finest leather and the sedan is equipped with a 1965 watt Bowers & Wilkins sound system for an excellent audio experience. The rear doors feature 5.5-inch touchscreens to operate the infotainment system, while the rear seats feature reclining and massaging functions as well as self-closing doors, a panoramic glass roof, cloud-based navigation, and more.

Power for the BMW i7 comes from a 101.7 kWh battery pack with a range of 625 kilometers (WLTP cycle) on a single charge. The electric motor in the BMW i7 xDrive60 delivers 536 bhp and 745 Nm of peak torque. The car can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 240 km/h. The i7 primarily competes with the Mercedes-Benz EQS in this segment.
