The Ultimate High Tech Luxury Electric Car!

Published 2023-05-23
BMW i7 is absolutely loaded, and I'd take it over any other ultra luxury electric sedan.

    Drove one at CES and looked again recently. Incredible car, but I just don’t like the front grill.
  • I have a new BMW with the gesture controls like you demonstrated for volume control. It sounds gimmicky, but it is a feature I actually really like. There is a learning curve, but once you learn it, it is actually really easy way to control the radio without ever looking off the road. Most people try to put their fingers too close to the screen (like MKBHD did), but the "sweet spot" is actually just above the center console (where your hand would naturally be). If you are resting on the armrest, you barely need to lift a finger to control the volume or skip tracks and stuff.
    It is something I find myself doing in our other car and it always takes a few seconds of it not working to remind me that I can't do that. That's how much you grow to rely on it. I feel like everyone always laughs about it, but its actually a really cool feature.

    The i7 seems like a great car despite it being heinously ugly.
  • @Gteyuhg
    Going by BMW'S reliability especially with electricals', I'm sure this car will be completely trouble free for many years to come !!
  • @joelsnake8
    I wonder how will these kind of cars behave in terms of repairability in the future when stuff begins to break apart
  • @nitesh-maharaj
    I think most people's biggest gripes with almost all new cars are the capacitive buttons, which are prone to accidental touches and having to look at it, instead of just feeling. The UX is always compromised, and I think the removable tablet would work better as a remote control device.

    Designers: How many parts of this car do you want to electrically fail?
    BMW: YES
  • @taseenhossain
    Imagine trying to adjust the AC and opening the door on the highway 😅
  • @JWSpradlin
    I still think Cadilac dropped the ball by not starting their EV path with the Escalade. This looks incredible inside, but I agree, that front grill is hideous.

    We would love if you could also do a personal drive-on test for each and every car you review, Marques.. A personal drive experience who has already driven many electric cars adds to the video..face-red-heart-shape
  • @drabbster
    yeah, it's really hard not getting amazed by all the crazy interior of this car but BMW really has to get a new design-language cuz the beaver is strong with these.
  • @nagashreemn3661
    I have two questions:
    1. What about rear mirror/ inside mirror view for the driver when TV is being used?
    2. What if the back seat person accidentally press leaning back mode and how does it react when a person is already sitting in the front?
  • @misccarvids7261
    I really like the i7. I like that BMW just made it a 7 series that happens to be electric instead of a completely different like S class and EQS and having the EV version be the arguably worse car. It's still ugly but not as ugly as the EQS and is a better overall car, no brainer imo.
  • @batterieman3001
    really love this car and the design grew on me over time. Different colors make a huge difference in the appearance
  • @phakyou
    Surprisingly, I don't find it ugly. The only bad thing though is the capacitive touch controls. I'd much much prefer physical knobs and buttons
  • I'd say I'm impressed by the design. Those grills are the exact way I love car vents to be designed. Not really a fan of the tech. Rather, I'm interested in how light weight it'll be on the steering and also the chasis. The two biggest downsides for me are the tech - unsurprisingly. 1. The microphones just give me wiretap vibes; 2. The touch screens. I still believe cars should have haptic touches and feeback. That's a different discussion. If I had to pick any car just from the outside. I'd pick this with no hesitation. Also, I really like the placements of speakers all across car seats, dash, etc. Too bad the audio is said to be sub-par.
  • @jakob9660
    I actually like this car quite a lot and with the right specs and color, it actually can look quite nice.
  • @gordonmao9147
    Definitely agree with voice assistant review: it is by far the best most accurate voice recognition I have ever used, arguably better than Google. I have the X7 which has a similar system. Only time it makes mistakes is when the windows are open due to back ground noise. Itrecognized weird street names and even ethnic names from my phone list. Miles better than my wife's XC90 which has a voice system that is incredibly frustrating to use
  • @jeffs6090
    Not sure why BMW doesn't do a digital rear view mirror. With that back seat screen, it's absolutely needed! Plus, it would make more sense for that screen to be in the X7 since more people can watch it.
  • @CrankyOldNerd
    anyone else remember the 7 series in 2000s Windows CE car that had a ton of issues? lol, i'd be worried about this one being similar, not sure they learned their lesson from that. The BMW owner forums were full of 'normal operation' bugs. My favorite was the one that moved the dash to the tiny radio screen, cranked volume to max, and turned on the heater full blast.
