The 2017 BMW 740e xDrive is ready and will be available for purchase this month. It is the next gen model to join the 7 series lineup.
The model powered by a petrol engine is priced at $85,495 while the upcoming plug-in hybrid version is priced higher at $90,095. The pricing of the car is bit higher when compared to the cost an average buyer pays for his or her car. Being the 7 series model from BMW, the car offers a range of new features and has an impressive performance making it the best all-rounder model.
On the inside, the 2017 BMW 740e xDrive is powered by a highly tweaked version of a four-cylinder engine. It can produce up to 322 horsepower which when coupled with 369 lb feet of torque makes it an amazingly fast car on the road. BMW claimed that they have used the most powerful version of the engine the series has ever witnessed. The claim is justified by pure performance as the car can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 5.1 seconds.
According to EPA reports, the electric range of the new 7 series model is said to offer up to 14 miles on a single charge. The range is extremely less when compared to many other cars heading to stores next year. Nissan already promises over 200 miles with their Leaf, Chevrolet does it with Bolt and Tesla has its Model 3. BMW is obviously not trying to compete with any of these brands because an all-electric car with great mile range is not something they are aiming at the moment.
The plugin hybrid version of the 2017 BMW 740e xDriveiPerformance can be charged within three hours if you have an authorized BMW charging station installed in your home. Standard equipment available in the car includes BMW Display key, LED headlights and ambiance exterior lighting package. It allows you to easily find the car when there is minimal light in the environment.
The car is equipped with iDrive infotainment system, supports gesture controls and has Connected Drive navigation package. It works with all smartphones including iOS and Android devices. Heating, air conditioning systems are part of the base model. Additionally, buyers could choose to equip the model with seat ventilation, massaging seats, panoramic sky lounge LED roof and Bowers & Wilkins Diamond surround system. The interior always smells great if you opt for the ambience air package.
