It more or less replaces the lauded M760Li and its boosted V12 engine.
The M760e xDrive is the ICE 7 Series flagship.
The BMW brand is evolving, as are most others, however few if any seem to be able to match the German automaker’s pace. It seems as though every other day, BMW introduces a new model or technology and here we are again. Seemingly minutes after revealing the XM, we have the BMW M760e xDrive.
This version of the freshly overhauled flagship 7 Series will sit at the very top as the ultimate super-luxury-sedan. Many remember the wonderful M760Li, with its twin-turbocharged V12 engine, and this is its replacement. If you know BMW, the “e” stands for electrification meaning that the M760e gets electron power.
Powering the M760e is a TwinPower Turbo 3.0L straight six-cylinder engine that, on its own, puts out 380hp and 383 lb.- ft. of torque. The PHEV part consists in an electric motor that gets its mojo from an 18.7kWh lithium-ion battery. Total system output is a serious 571hp (in the temporary overboost function) and 590 lb.- ft.
Thanks to the power, the 2023 BMW M760e xDrive accelerates from 0-100km/h in 4.8 seconds. Fuel consumption is rated at a combined: 1.3 – 1.0L/100 km, which will not reflect real-world numbers. They are however calculated using the car’s projected electric range of 77 – 85 kilometres.
It’s unclear as of now if the car will be offered for sale in North America. Pricing is set at €144,000 (including 19% VAT).
