2024 BMW i7 Review, Pricing, and Specs

The BMW i7 starts at $119,300, plus a $995 destination fee. That pricing is similar to the dual-motor Mercedes-Benz EQS 580 4Matic, but the EQS has a more affordable single-motor option. The i7 is a bit more expensive than smaller electric luxury sedans like the Porsche Taycan and Tesla Model S

Is the BMW i7 a good car?

The BMW i7 is an all-electric saloon that has some controversial looks and joins the iX as the electric flagship of the BMW line-up. It’s the EV alternative to the 7 Series and features the latest battery technology from the German firm. It’s a lot like buying a nice faux leather jacket instead of one made from a cow, and it’s good enough to have secured a 2023 carwow Buy It Award.

Looks-wise, the i7 will definitely split opinions. But once you’re used to it, the large kidney grilles and split headlights look pretty smart, while the long bonnet exudes class. The limousine styling continues down the side, so it can look a bit slab-sided, but the optional two-tone paint option could be a master stroke if you like that sort of thing.

What’s New for 2024?

BMW has added the 650-hp M70 model to the i7’s lineup for 2024. The more powerful electric powertrain is said to power the big sedan to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds and still offers an estimated 295-mile driving range per charge. Otherwise, we’re expecting that the i7 will carry over to the new year with no other major changes.

How fast is BMW i7?

However, individual testing has shown that the i7 can accelerate to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds. The i7 can also gallop to the quarter-mile in 12.5 seconds and will cease speeding when it hits the limiter at 149 mph.

Is BMW i7 same as 7 Series?

The i7 is basically the electric version of the 7 Series, and, as BMW explains, “the electric i7 is a 7 Series regardless of drivetrain.” This is unlike Merc’s EQS, which is clearly a four-door coupe and not an electric S-Class
