BMW Looking To The Future With i7 M70 xDrive

With the BMW i7 M70 xDrive, BMW M puts an all-electric performance model at the top end of the new BMW 7 Series model range. It is the most powerful model with an all-electric drive in the overall BMW Group portfolio.

With an electric motor on both the front and rear axles, which together generate a maximum system output of 485kW/660bhp, and an M suspension, the new BMW i7 M70 xDrive offers the perfect combination of electric mobility and performance, providing a driving experience that is unique in the luxury segment. 

The top model of the new BMW 7 Series accelerates from zero to 100kmph in 3.7 seconds, making it the fastest all-electric BMW model. The top speed is electronically limited to 250kmph.

This new performance record is achieved thanks to an innovation patented by the BMW Group, which uses six excitation coils in the stator of the electric motor instead of the usual three. This allows the electric machine to generate extremely high power in a light and compact design and to provide it continuously up into high speed ranges. 

The standard suspension technology of the new BMW i7 M70 xDrive includes M specific adaptive two-axle air suspension with automatic self-levelling and electronically controlled shock absorbers whose response is optimised thanks to M specific hydraulics. Integral Active Steering and the Executive Drive Pro suspension package including Active Roll Stabilisation with Active Roll Comfort also feature as standard equipment. The package also offers an M sports brake system and 21-inch M light alloy wheels.
