The Design

BMW i7 electric has a design that closely resembles the G70 generation of the 7-Series. Moreover, it shares its platform with several other EVs in BMW’s lineup. Due to its electric nature, the car features blue accents in various parts, distinguishing it from the traditional ICE version.

If we talk about the front of the car, it has a large kidney grille that lights up. Also, there is an ‘i’ badge on the grille, which would obviously be missing in the regular version. Enhancing the side profile are the 21-inch alloy wheels with disc brakes on all four wheels. It comes with ADAS features, and the video shows where sensors, radars, and cameras are located.

Interestingly, you can open and close the sedan’s doors automatically with the touch of a button.
