While the numbers seem to be tiny by car industry standards, the i7 comes with an eye-watering starting price of 139,000EUR in Germany and $119,000 in the United States, the 73 BMW i7s sold in Germany during last month constitute 43% of overall 7 Series sales
For years, BMW has dominated the global luxury car market. And now, with the introduction of fully electrified options, it looks like it will do the same in the EV field as well. According to BimmerToday, the recently revealed BMW i7 already constituted 43% of the 7 series sales in Germany last month, making the electric version the most popular despite being the most expensive. According to data collected by the German news site, 73 BMW i7s were sold during January.
While the numbers seem to be tiny by car industry standards, the vehicle comes with an eye-watering starting price of 139,000EUR in Germany and $119,000 in the United States. In turn, it’s no wonder it’s not selling like a Tesla Model 3, for example, but it still follows a trend in BMW Group’s ultra-luxury EVs, dominating gas-powered alternatives. Sure, the ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) variants will still be one of the best-selling vehicles in the segment, but the EV version of the 7 Series is slowly becoming the best-selling in the model’s entire lineup.
