Next year, BMW will introduce its flagship i7 electric sedan. However, he is already struggling in the most difficult conditions.
Let’s see the Munich automaker under the hood of the testing procedure with an official video and series of photos. They pick up electricity BMW i7 At the BMW Group winter test center in Arjeplog, Sweden, thanks to which we can see the planned electric car in motion for the first time.
Only a few kilometers from the Arctic Circle, engineers on icy surfaces and snowy roads have ideal conditions to check the operation and alignment of all drive and chassis systems. BMW says that for the first time ever, it will be possible to experience maximum dynamism, comfort and supremacy in the luxury class with absolutely no domestic emissions.
Following the example of its combustion sibling, the electric branch of the BMW 7 Series offers the perfect blend of sporty and comfortable driving characteristics. For example, they use frozen lakes with a low coefficient of friction, with which they can sensitively adjust the control systems of the hull and the functions of the stabilization system.
Of course, the winter testing program also focuses on purely electric motor components, for which temperatures below freezing are critical. BMW collects data on the high-voltage battery, as well as the electronics and the charging system itself. All these components are based on the fifth generation of BMW eDrive technology, which we already know from the large BMW iX SUV. But we will have to wait some time for the official unveiling of the new generation of the flagship, and the premiere is not expected until next year.
