2022 BMW i7 electric sedan winter test images revealed

The BMW i7 once launched will take on the Mercedes-Benz EQS.

BMW has unveiled the first set of official images of the upcoming electric 7 Series undergoing winter testing. The official images showcase the BMW i7 completely covered in camouflage, revealing little to no design details.

BMW has, however, confirmed that the new i7 will use the brand's latest eDrive system, currently used on its iX luxury SUV. The BMW i7 will also make use of its CLAR platform, which also underpins the iX SUV, the i4 electric sedan and the ICE-powered 2 Series Coupe.

While BMW is yet to announce the powertrain of the i7, it is expected to borrow the battery and electric motor configuration from its iX SUV sibling. The BMW iX model is powered by a dual-electric motor setup producing 516 BHP. It uses a 105.2 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, offering 390 miles of range on a single charge.

The new BMW i7 is said to be globally unveiled sometime in 2022. Once launched, it will take on the Mercedes-Benz EQS.
