Review 

Since most of the standard Series 7’s design elements are carried over, there’s nothing about the 2021 BMW 745e that means it’s a hybrid. The only telltale signs that this is the BMW 7 Series plug-in hybrid from the exterior photos are the plug point on the driver’s side fender and the slight badging on the trunk lid. The eight-speed automatic is equally impressive when switched to manual mode and using the steering-mounted paddles, with silky-smooth shifts and fast gear changes.

A turbocharged 3.0-litre straight-six engine with 280 horsepower and an electric eDrive motor with 113 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque power the BMW 7 Series Hybrid(2021 BMW 745e). An eight-speed Steptronic automatic transmission controls the combination, which produces 389 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. All four wheels receive power from BMW’s xDrive all-wheel-drive system.

For a luxury car, the power delivery is smooth and convenient, and it’s even better when the electric motor is used exclusively, which is possible at speeds of up to 65 mph. For maximum efficiency, simply bury your right foot, and the 745e will accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds. The top speed is 130 mph, but it can raise it to 155 mph with higher-performance tires.

2021 BMW 745e Interior

The BMW 745e seats five adults in reasonable comfort in 2021, but this is a sporty sedan to have no more than two people in the rear. The center seat is uncomfortable, while the outer seats are roomy, with plenty of headroom and legroom. A rear-seat entertainment kit will replace the middle seat with an iDrive controller and console, allowing you to play media on the seatback-mounted screens if you want to enhance the experience.

The 2021 BMW 745e has a smaller trunk size than gasoline-powered siblings due to a battery pack’s inclusion. The hybrid only has 14.8 cubic feet of space, compared to 18.2 cubic feet for gas-powered versions. The 7 Series hybrid, as a flagship luxury sedan, comes with a long list of standard features. It includes a hands-free trunk, adjustable dampers,  heated power wing mirrors, a 12.3-inch driver info display, self-levelling air suspension, dynamic cruise control, push-button start, keyless entry, remote start, and a 12.3-inch driver info display.

There’s still enough room in the trunk for a couple of medium-sized suitcases and carry-on luggage, but you’d have to be a Tetris master to get it to fit perfectly, as the battery pack adds a level to the trunk floor. A panoramic sunroof, soft-close doors, quad-zone automatic climate control, rain-sensing wipers, expanded ambient lighting, and a power rear sunshade is also included, as well as heated front seats and armrests and a heated steering wheel.

Wireless mobile charging, automatic high beams, adaptive LED brake lights, a crash preparation system with post-collision braking, a driver condition monitor, forward collision alarm, lane departure warning, blind-spot tracking, a surround-view camera, parking sensors, and a drive recorder are among the other features available as standard.

Should I Buy a 2021 BMW 745e?

Since the 7 Series Hybrid is a single model, there is only one version available, so let’s see which configurations are better. The Executive Package adds a beautiful LED roof-lighting element, ceramic controls, ventilated front seats, and a leather dashboard for $2,500, but we wouldn’t recommend it. We’d probably spend $1,700 on the Driving Assistance Specialist Kit, including active cruise control and other features.

At $3,900, the Luxury Rear Seating Package is also worth considering. It has ventilation in both rows of seats, as well as power-adjustable seats in the back. If you have an extra thousand dollars to spare, you can get massage front seats. The rear-seat entertainment system is also an excellent choice, but it will cost you $2,700. This specification would cost $105,700 in all.
