2023 BMW i7 xDrive60 finally makes official debut in Malaysia – 625km range, from RM730k

After the price announcement of the all-electric BMW i7 in Malaysia just over two months ago, the luxury sedan has finally made its official debut here at the unveiling of the brand’s House of Forwardism, in conjunction with BMW Group Malaysia’s 20th Anniversary. Available in the xDrive60 M Sport variant only, the all-electric luxury sedan is priced at RM729,800.

As its name suggests, the BMW i7 is essentially the all-electric variant of the BMW 7 Series. On the outside, differences between the 2023 BMW i7 and the “regular” 7 Series are rather subtle, and this includes the location of the charging port and the lack of a fuel filler cap.

Besides that, the BMW i7 xDrive60 M Sport in Malaysia comes with the M Sport kit as standard, the Iconic Glow crystal headlights with embedded Swarovski crystals, as well as the Iconic Glow girl frame that highlights the large kidney grille, especially at night. Also included with the BMW i7 are the 21-inch M aerodynamic wheels. Exterior colour options include Black Sapphire, Mineral White, BMW Individual Dravit Grey, BMW Individual Tanzanite Blue, Oxide Grey, M Brooklyn Grey, and Aventurine Red.

Powering the BMW i7 xDrive60 is a dual-motor setup that churns out a total of 544 hp and 745 Nm to all four wheels. This allows the luxury sedan to sprint from a standstill to 100 km/h in 4.7 seconds, and achieve an electronically limited top speed of 240 km/h.

Thanks to a 101.7-kWh battery pack, the BMW i7 is able to carry you as far as 625 km (WLTP). When it runs out of battery, the BMW i7 xDrive60 can be charged at a maximum rate of 11 kW with AC charging and 195 kW with DC charging. The former charges the car to full in 9.5 hours while the latter juices the car up from 10% to 80% in around 34 minutes.

Moving inside the Malaysian-spec BMW i7 xDrive60 M Sport, you get a dashboard that features a non-symmetrical tabletop design. The dashboard also comes with a scalloped wooden section that houses BMW’s new floating iDrive 8 curved display panels.

Also available here with the BMW i7 is an interaction Bar, which is a touch-sensitive transparent surface that spans across the entire front half of the cabin, allowing occupants to control the car’s climate control system and lights, alongside opening the powered door on the passenger side. Interior upholstery options that come with the BMW i7 in Malaysia include BMW Individual leather ‘Merino’ in Black, Tartufo, Smoke White, and Amarone.

In the safety department, the BMW i7 in Malaysia is equipped with the marque’s Driving Assistant Plus Professional package which comes together with semi-autonomous driving capabilities during traffic jams. Parking Assistant Plus is also fitted with the luxury sedan as standard.

Included with the price tag of the BMW i7 xDrive60 M Sport in Malaysia is a 5-year/unlimited mileage warranty with a free scheduled service programme, along with BMW roadside assistance and accident hotline.
