A BMW i7 chargingIn recent years, venerable German luxury carmaker BMW has made a splash in the growing luxury electric vehicle market with several innovative models. The iX is ranked among the very best electric SUVs on the road, while the i3 and i4 have also left their marks. For the 2023 model year, BMW introduced a new luxury electric sedan to compete for the top of its class. The 2023 BMW i7 is one of the most exciting LEV models to debut this year. It offers unmatched prestige and luxury, combined with the unbeatable efficiency of all-electric driving. That said, here’s our review of the 2023 BMW i7.

Refined Luxury

The 2023 BMW i7 is a modified version of BMW’s gas-powered 7-series. That means it has a large frame for a sedan and an extremely spacious cabin. BMW has filled that cabin with all of the elegance and luxury features that consumers expect from the brand. Buyers can choose between a number of upholstery materials and trim packages. Other luxury features include available reclining rear seats, a digital touchscreen infotainment display, and ample wireless connectivity features.

From the outside, the i7’s large front grille and powerful frame create an unmistakable image that is sure to turn heads. Meanwhile, passengers inside the i7 can enjoy ample legroom and all the luxury comforts they could want.

Exhilarating Driving Experience

As one would expect from BMW, the i7 offers a remarkably smooth and powerful driving experience. The 2023 BMW i7 is powered by dual synchronous motors and a 101.7 kWh electric battery. The combined output is 536 horsepower and 549 lb.-ft. of torque. Those figures alone are enough to put the 2023 i7 in elite company when compared to other luxury electric vehicles. The i7 accelerates from 0 to 60 MPH in just 4.1 seconds, which is surprisingly quick for a sedan of its size. The i7 tops out at 150 MPH, gliding silently at all speeds thanks to its electric motor.

More than just a powerful sedan, the i7 is also remarkable for how smoothly it handles. Bumps and turns are no trouble at all, as the i7 handles every road with complete ease. The smooth ride it offers is just another reason why the i7 ranks as one of the most comfortable electric vehicles this year.

High Mileage Charging Efficiency

One of the top questions consumers have for every new LEV model has to do with range. How far an EV can travel before needing to be recharged is a practical concern for anyone thinking about electric driving. For i7 drivers, “range anxiety” never needs to be a concern at all. The 2023 BMW i7 can travel up to 308 miles on a single charge. That’s an impressive figure for a debut model, especially when as powerful as the i7. Of course, BMW has had plenty of practice crafting efficient batteries on their previous LEV models.

Charging times for the 2023 BMW i7 are fairly standard. Using a Level 3 DC fast charger, the i7 charges at a rate of about 80 miles for every 10 minutes of charging. With a 220-volt Level 2 AC charger, the i7 can reach a full charge in 12 hours. With access to an in-home charger for overnight charging, this is a highly convenient option for most BMW owners.

Cost of Ownership

The 2023 BMW i7 is available now at a starting price of $119,300. The i7 represents high-end luxury electric driving thanks to its range of exciting features and incredible performance. But LEV ownership also comes with its own cost-saving incentives. Most states offer tax incentives for electric vehicle ownership. On top of that, the long-term savings of never needing to pay for gas again can quickly add up for EV owners.
