2023 BMW 7 Series now in Malaysia – 750e xDrive PHEV, M Sport and Pure Excellence variants, from RM650k

BMW Malaysia has officially unveiled the all-new seventh-generation 7 Series here on our shores, with the launch of the BMW 750e xDrive today. The plug-in hybrid luxury sedan arrives in local assembly (CKD) form, and is offered in two trim levels – Pure Excellence and M Sport, with prices starting at RM649,800 on the road, without insurance for the former.

If the luxury-oriented (and cheaper) Pure Excellence is more your style, though, you’ll have to hurry up, as there are only 48 units available throughout Malaysia.

Both variants share the same powertrain underneath the bonnet – a 3.0-litre turbocharged inline-six engine mated to an electric motor, making a combined 489 hp and 700 Nm of torque. Power is channelled to the roads via the xDrive all-wheel drive system and an eight-speed Steptronic automatic gearbox, delivering a century sprint time of 4.8 seconds, onward to a top speed of 250 km/h.

The electric motor is supplied by a 22.1 kWh battery pack, which is good for a full electric range of up to 87 km, at speeds of up to 140 km/h. For charging, an on-board 7.4 kW AC charger enables a full charge in under three hours.

As for kit, both variants of the new BMW 750e xDrive share the same Iconic Glow crystal headlights with embedded Swarovski crystals, paired to the Iconic Glow grille frame that further highlights the large kidney grille, especially at night.

The Pure Excellence variant comes with 19-inch Style 903 double spoke alloy wheels, while the more expensive 750e xDrive M Sport variant gets a sportier 20-inch Style 907 bicolour M aerodynamic wheels to match its more aggressive blacked-out Shadowline exterior.

The main highlight on the inside, however, is the BMW Interaction Bar, which nests most of the centre stack buttons into a touch-sensitive bar across the dashboard, while also doubling as the cabin’s ambient lighting system.

Other interior equipment include the automatic doors, Sky Lounge panoramic glass roof, Crafted Clarity crystal glass trims on the centre console and seat adjustment rockers on the doors, a four-zone climate control system, head-up display, and a Bowers & Wilkins sound system.
