BMW Releases Its Fastest Fully Electric Vehicle Yet

BMW’s i7 electric sedan is getting a performance upgrade from the masterminds at BMW M. The up- to-660-horsepower BMW i7 M70 xDrive is setting new internal records as its fastest, most powerful EV model yet.

Last April, the German luxury automaker released its first fully electric 7 series, the i7, with over 300 miles range and top-of-the-line luxury features, including an impressive 31-inch “theatre screen,” massaging seats, a panoramic sunroof, and more.After rolling out in Europe and China, BMW’s electric sedan landed at US dealerships in the fourth quarter last year.After delivering nearly 65,000 fully electric vehicles in the first three months of 2023, the BMW Group (including MINI) doubled EV sales (+112.4%) again while many EV makers have struggled.

The i7 has been a hot seller in China and is expected to be a “main growth driver” alongside its other premium models. Although BMW’s CEO has confirmed there will be lower-priced electric models in the automaker’s lineup, the i70 M70 performance EV will not be one of them, being the automaker’s most powerful electric vehicle with up to 660 hp.

It’s official. The BMW i7 is getting an M performance upgrade. The i7 M70 xDrive will be the third and most powerful EV from BMW M. With a dual electric motor, all-wheel-drive (AWD) system delivering up to 811 lb-ft (1,100 Nm) of torque and 660 horsepower, the BMW i7 M70 is the fastest, most powerful EV ever produced.

The big-body BMW can pick up quickly, with 0 to 62 mph (0 to 100km/h) capabilities in as little as 3.7 seconds when M launch mode or M sport boost function is enabled.

M sport mode enables performance-specific graphics and BMW Iconic Sounds Electric, an “M Performance specific note.” Sport mode further intensifies the experience with additional sounds.
