A Fully Electric BMW 7 Series In The Works For 2022

As BMW rolls out its considerable electrification plan, we learn that a fully-electric BMW 7-Series in on the way.

  • The EV version of the 7 Series will be one of four available powertrains.
  • Its EV technology will be shared with the BMW iX3, i4 and iNext.
  • Market launch expected for 2022.

BMW announced a few years ago that they had big plans to electrify all brands and models with to goal of dramatically increasing the take rate. In fact, BMW expects that between 15% and 25% of all their new deliveries will be electrified by 2025. This includes plug-in hybrid and fully-electric iterations for nearly all nameplates. The latest news revolves around an EV version of BMW’s flagship sedan, the 7 Series.

As such, the top-line 7 Series will be offered with four different drive types, including diesel, petrol, plug-in hybrid and battery electric. The powertrain in the electric-7 will be that of the 5th generation of BMW’s electric drive, or the same one that will come with the BMW iX3, i4 and iNext.

In the process of doing this, BMW Group will phase out nearly half of its internal combustion engines starting as early as next year. This transition will be most evident in 2022 with the addition or more electrified variants and by 2023, BMW will have 25 electrified products on the road.

BMW is on track to meet future CO2 targets. It won’t be an inexpensive journey as they plan on investing 30 billion euros in the process, but BMW is convinced it will pay off.
