The next-generation 2023 BMW 7 Series will soon make its debut on April 20. As such, the German luxury automaker has begun teasing its upcoming full-size flagship luxury sedan, and this includes its fully-electric variant called the i7.
Immediately prominent from BMW’s set of teaser photos is its ginormous kidney grille. Now larger than ever, the kidney grilles now resemble lungs to our eyes, and it features LED accent illumination just like in the upcoming BMW XM that was previewed in concept form.
Also being confirmed by this teaser is its split-type headlights, with the upper LED daytime running lights housed in crystal glass.
BMW also teased the interior of the upcoming 7 Series, and it showcases the brand’s first-ever implementation of a 31-inch Theater Screen. The giant screen is mounted at the roofline, and it moves down when the screen is activated. This is a different take compared to what Mercedes-Benz did with the EQS and its 56-inch Hyperscreen that encompasses its entire dash.
Anyhow, the all-new 7 Series will also come with the latest iDrive 8 that made its debut in the iX electric SUV, which means that infotainment duties are done through the curved screen. The all-new 7 Series will also debut the BMW Interaction Bar, which is a new strip on the dashboard and doors that occupants can interact with for various functions. Lastly, the 2023 BMW 7 Series will also come with the Sky Lounge panoramic sunroof with LED light threads embedded into the glass itself.
Engine choices have not yet been confirmed as of the moment, though BMW has already released a couple of information regarding the i7. The i7 is expected to have a range of 580-610 kilometers under the WLTP cycle and 491 kilometers as rated by the EPA when fully charged. The BMW i7 will also be the flagship powertrain choice for the 7 Series, and it’s also the “world’s first all-electric luxury sedan”, which has some truth to it since its key rival, the Mercedes-Benz EQS, is a fastback with a rear hatch instead of a trunk lid.
Expect more teasers and information to be released by BMW as we approach the vehicle’s April 20 launch date.
