2023 BMW 7-Series And i7 Land In Australia From AU$268,900


BMW has announced pricing and specification details for the 2023 7-Series and i7 that have just landed in Australia.

Just a single variant of the 7-Series and i7 will be offered. On the ICE front is the 740i, priced from AU$268,900 ($185,720) locally while the i7 takes the form of the xDrive60, starting from AU$297,900 ($205,774).

Slotted under the hood of the BMW 740i is a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six petrol engine with 48-volt mild-hybrid technology that pumps out a total of 280 kW (375 hp) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque, all of which is funneled to the rear wheels courtesy of an eight-speed Steptronic transmission. The powertrain includes a 48-volt electric motor/generator that delivers a boost of up to 9 kW (12 hp) and 200 Nm (147 hp) and also serves as the starter motor.

This 48-volt system then recuperates kinetic energy during coasting and braking and converts it into electrical energy when the car is in generator or motor reverse cycle modes.
