For many years, the BMW 7 Series has served as the pinnacle of the automaker’s sedan lineup. The present iteration of this extremely-luxe flagship features a various array of powertrains. The most fuel-efficient is the 745e xDrive, which pairs a turbocharged inline-6 with a plug-in hybrid component. Nevertheless, to date, there have been no completely electric versions to contend with the Mercedes-Benz EQS, Porsche Taycan or Tesla Model S.

That will adjust soon, as evidenced by a new vehicle known as the i7 that BMW is teasing on its site. Here is anything we know about the upcoming electric equal of the 7 Series.

Shadowy shots and the iX hint at i7’s style

Appreciate it or dislike it the enormous “dual kidney” front grille is hard to slip-up for nearly anything but a BMW. The teaser visuals and video the automaker have revealed all highlight (pretty much) the pair of substantial grilles — which are probably ornamental, as EVs have no want for these types of significant air intakes (maw). Flanking the maw are some definitely swanky-hunting headlights. BMW suggests the offered Crystal Headlights are manufactured out of real crystal. They are thinner than the lights found on the current 7 Collection and appear to resemble the ones we have observed on the iX SUV.
