2017 BMW 740e xDrive iPerformance Arrives at Dealerships in August

WOODCLIFF LAKE, New Jersey — The 2017 BMW 740e xDrive iPerformance plug-in hybrid luxury sedan, a new addition to the BMW 7 Series lineup, is in production and bound for BMW dealerships in August.

The all-wheel-drive BMW 740e xDrive iPerformance is priced at $90,095, including a $995 destination charge. It targets the Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid and Tesla Model S.

In comparison, the base 2017 BMW 740i gasoline model starts at $82,495, while the 2017 BMW 740e xDrive gasoline model starts at $85,495. Prices include destination fees.

The 740e xDrive iPerformance delivers 322 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque, courtesy of what BMW calls "the most powerful four-cylinder engine ever fitted in a series-produced BMW." The engine is linked to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The hybrid system includes an electric motor and a lithium-ion battery. All-electric driving range is estimated at 14 miles.

BMW said the 740e xDrive iPerformance sprints from zero to 60 mph in 5.1 seconds. Top speed is limited to 155 mph.

The battery can be charged to full capacity in about seven hours from a residential 120-volt outlet. Buyers who install a BMW Charging Station in their garage can charge the vehicle in just under three hours.

Standard equipment includes LED headlights, BMW Display Key, ConnectedDrive navigation package, smartphone integration and the iDrive infotainment system with gesture controls.

Options include a Bowers & Wilkins Diamond surround-sound system and Sky Lounge LED panoramic roof.

The car also can be equipped with the M Sport package.

Edmunds says: This newest addition to the 2017 BMW 7 Series lineup is worth a trip to your local BMW dealership this month, especially for luxury shoppers who want to go green.
