BMW i7 M70 xDrive 2024 Price in Pakistan. Fans of ostentatious luxobarges may be divided regarding the 2024 BMW i7 M70 xDrive. On the one hand, BMW maintains that a real M7—one that adheres to M’s ethos of producing road cars from track-borne inspiration—is not likely to materialise. On the other hand, the i7 M70 is so good at everything that those people may finally be willing to accept. Maybe. They should, however.
The i7 M70’s meat and potatoes are hidden beneath the body. A 255-hp motor, similar to the one found in the i5 M60, powers the front wheels, while a 483-hp monster (BMW’s most powerful e-motor to date) hides in the back. When combined with launch control or the steering-wheel-mounted “BOOST” pedal, the output is an astonishing 650 horsepower and 811 pound-feet of torque. Otherwise, you’ll have to settle for a meagre 748 pound-feet. L’horreur.
All of this makes its way to the road via single-speed gearboxes, propelling the i7 M70 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, according to the company. Given that our i7 xDrive60 test shaved four-tenths of a second off BMW’s official 4.5-second number, we expect this half-cruise ship/half-cruise missile to be even more bizarre when we put it through its paces.

Whatever the stopwatch says, the Full Send experience in the i7 M70 isn’t far off from launching the GMC Hummer EV, or perhaps a Saturn V. Grip the steering wheel as if you’ll fall off the planet if you let go, press the right pedal and the nose rises as the entire car rail-guns forward. We elected not to have the piped-in Hans Zimmer Sound Experience assault our eardrums when this occurs, but Interstellar aficionados may want to leave it on and shout, “Don’t let me leave, Murph!” for added flavour. It’s violent and ridiculous, and exactly what a $169,495 7-series—roughly $45,000 more than the i7 xDrive60—should be.
BMW, of course, did not only go to the gym on leg day. The i7 M70 has a slew of improvements designed to improve stability and handling. For added front-end rigidity, an additional shear panel is installed between the firewall and the strut towers. M adds its touch to the air springs and hydraulics, which include four-corner air springs and electronically controlled dampers as standard. Active roll stabilisation helps minimise lean in corners, while rear-axle steering can move the back wheels up to 2.5 degrees.
Is it effective? Yes, if anything can make an i7 M70 (estimated curb weight: 6050 pounds) feel lighter on its feet. The M70 does a commendable sports-sedan cosplay with everything stiffened in Sport mode, keeping body movements in control and making impressively neat work of switchbacks where each lane is scarcely wider than the car itself. Some automobiles get smaller as they get faster, but not this one. The lane-departure warning will keep you aware of the breadth of this BMW.
But don’t think that the quest of playing switchback surgeon has harmed the i7 in any way. As adept as the M70 is when hustling, it is as content to slow down and focus on luxuriating. This car, like its less powerful sibling, will positively glide all day, soaking up any indication of rough roads and conveying little motion to the interior. Wind and road noise are buried three towns over, while the optional summer tyres may detract from the peace and quiet; go with all seasons if you don’t intend to act like a hoodlum.
The same battery pack found in the i7 xDrive60 provides the electrons for these shenanigans, measuring 101.7 kilowatt-hours of useable capacity. The EPA range is 291 miles with the normal 21-inch wheels and 274 miles with the 20s, which is 16 and 24 miles less than the xDrive60’s statistics. However, our 75-mph real-world range test in an xDrive60 concluded after only 260 miles—far short of both the EPA’s statistics and our tests of the i7’s closest competitor, the Mercedes-Benz EQS—and there doesn’t appear to be any reason to expect the M70 to perform much better.
If you’re worried about making it to the next charger, the i7 M70 has a trick that might assist. A new Max Range mode cuts engine performance, reduces peak speed to 56 mph, and disables creature conveniences such as climate control and seat heaters. BMW estimates that it can increase the remaining range by about 25%; each circumstance is different, but it should assist. Once connected, the M70 can accept up to 195 kilowatts of DC fast-charging power or 11.0 kilowatts of AC power.
Naturally, BMW zhuzhed up the i7 M70’s appearance to add a little flair. The fasciae feature more angles, and a narrow strip surrounding the front grille is illuminated. There’s blacked-out trim, angrier side skirts, and so many M emblems you’d think they were for sale. BMW, on the other hand, did nothing about that Habsburg jaw of a rear bumper.
