Default Rumour: BMW working on electric 7-Series

According to a media report, BMW is working on an electric version of the next-generation 7-Series. The 7-Series could also get a new design language on the inside and the outside.

The electric version of the 7-Series is expected to be called the i7. It could get at least three different battery packs and different power outputs. The battery packs could start at 80 kWh and could go to more than 120 kWh. The report also suggests that the car could have a range of around 700 km and the power output could be around 650 BHP for the most powerful variant.

The BMW i7 could be launched by the end of 2021 or in 2022. It is expected to compete with electric variants of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and the Jaguar XJ.

Those are stupendous numbers. It will of course come with a massive premium.
Maybe they could also add solar panels to that front grill considering the amount of real estate it will cover in the next Gen 7.

Allegedly, the car’s battery pack could offer up to 400 miles (644 kilometers of range). BMW likely won’t confirm these details anytime soon and don’t expect the i7 to arrive until 2022
