EVx 2023: BMW i7 xDrive60 on display at SCCC – 625 km EV range, 544 PS, 31.3-inch rear theatre screen


The new BMW i7 is currently on display at the paultan.org Electric Vehicle Expo (EVx) 2023, which is currently ongoing at the Setia City Convention Centre from July 22-23. Launched in Malaysia just last month, the all-electric version of the seventh-generation G70 7 Series is available in a sole xDrive60 M Sport variant priced at RM707,250 on-the-road without insurance.

This figure is with the standard two-year warranty, but if you want the optional extended warranty (five years) and service (six years) package, the asking price goes up to RM729,800. For the money, you’re getting an EV that provides up to 625 km of range following the WLTP standard, courtesy of a sizeable lithium-ion battery with a gross energy capacity of 105.7 kWh (101.7 kWh net).

The battery powers a pair of electric motors that provides all-wheel drive as well as a total system output of 544 PS (536 hp or 400 kW) and 745 Nm of torque. In terms of acceleration, the i7 will get from 0-100 km/h in just 4.7 seconds on its way to an electronically limited top speed of 240 km/h.
