As with the previous BMW 7 Series, the model is considered as BMW’s flagship car. Naturally, any new technology or innovation will naturally be introduced with the 7 Series. Although further details were not mentioned, expect the electric powertrain is to have in excess of 600 hp with 850 Nm.

Zipse further adds that local mobility needs and legislation are so varied worldwide, hence ‘one model for the world’ method no longer works, so ‘different drive technologies will coexist alongside one another into the long term’ for better sustainability.
