BMW has recently announced its all-new i7 M70, which is the automaker’s quickest and most powerful electric vehicle to date. Another debut at the Shanghai auto show, the BMW i7 M70 reveal shows us just what the automaker has in store for this super sedan: With 650 horsepower and a 3.5-second 0-60 time, the 2023 i7 M70 will be a beast.
BMW i7 M70 Specs
Not only can the i7 M70 go from 0-60 mph in just 3.5 seconds, but it’ll have a top speed of 155 mph. Despite the immense performance, BMW still claims that the 101.7 kWh battery will be capable of providing up to 295 miles of range. A charging capacity of up to 194 kW means that charging 10-80% using a DC fast charger can be done in a little over 30 minutes.
This flagship model comes loaded with all the latest technology, including BMW Operating System 8.5 – incorporating the latest generation of the infotainment head unit – and BMW Curved Display, a Panoramic Sky Lounge LED Roof, and AR-assisted navigation.
How Will It Drive?
The i7 M70 has been tuned by the BMW M division, and its engineers have dialed up the chassis of the 7-Series for improved performance. The M-specific air suspension has adjustable damping and automatic leveling, with active anti-roll bars to counteract body lean. The brake package and wheels are also M-specific units.
The M70’s peak torque output of 811 lb-ft is available only in the launch control setting or when using the M Sport Boost function.
When Will We Get It?
The BMW i7 M70 reveal in Shanghai got us a bit hot and bothered, but we’ll have to wait a bit before we can get our hands on this one. The market launch is currently scheduled for the second half of 2023, which is also when we should learn the pricing.
