The BMW i7 xDrive60 M Sport sits in the middle of the 7 Series range with a list price of $306,900. That places it above the $273K 740i which is the only combustion engine variant in the line-up and below the $345K i7 M70 xDrive.
Whatever you do, don't dismiss the i7 xDrive60 M Sport as an overpriced electric version of the 740i because it has many more standard features that enhance the luxury and chauffeuring experience.
We're talking automatically opening doors, a 31.3-inch media display in the second row and control tablets for it in the rear doors.
There's a 35-speaker Bowers & Wilkins surround sound system (not the 740i's 18-speaker stereo), power adjustable and heated rear seats plus an 'Executive Lounge' console, and a BMW Individual Gran Lusso interior with a choice of Merino or Cashmere upholstery.
Our car had the Merino Tartufo brown leather upholstery and carbon-fibre M interior trim.
The i7 also rolls on larger 21-inch wheels which fill the giant wheel arches perfectly.
The rest of the standard features list is almost identical to the 740i's and includes the imposing LED-outlined grille, the Swarovski crystal headlights and the panoramic glass roof.
Inside, the double screens for media and driver instruments are also standard, there's sat nav, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a head-up display for the driver, front row seats are heated, massaging and power adjustable, there are also electric sun-blinds for the rear.
Our car wore the 'Oxide Grey Metallic' paint which made my videographer very happy because apparently it shows contours better than any other colour even on a bright, sunny day.
At the time we published this review BMW was also supplying as standard a charging wall box and a five-year Chargefox subscription.
