Electric cars are slowly gaining popularity among buyers. We not only have electric cars from mass-market car manufacturers, but also from expensive and luxury car brands. We have also observed a trend among celebrities where they are opting for electric cars. Electric cars represent the future of mobility, and it appears that celebrities want to embrace this change as well. Recently, Bollywood actress Rekha was spotted arriving at an event in her brand-new BMW i7 electric luxury sedan.
The video has been shared by “Cars For You” on his YouTube channel. In this video, we see Rekha arriving for an event in her brand-new i7 electric sedan. The actress exits from the back seat of the car and greets photographers and vloggers who were waiting for her outside. Initially, she doesn’t pose for pictures, probably because she was running late for the event. The actress quickly walks in without wasting much time. As soon as Rekha exits, we can see the driver of her luxury car driving it away. The video does not provide a detailed view of Rekha’s car, and it appears to be a brand new car as there is no registration plate visible on it.
After the event concluded, Rekha did pose for pictures and videos before finally getting into her car and driving off. Her personal secretary is also seen in the video. The BMW i7 seen in the video is likely finished in a champagne grey shade. The exact color of the car is unclear as the video was recorded at night. BMW launched its flagship luxury electric sedan, the i7, in India earlier this year. It is essentially the electric version of the 7-Series sedan offered by the manufacturer. It is a sizable car, and when compared to the regular 7-Series, it features blue accents in various places, new alloy wheels, an ‘i’ badge on the large front grille, and more.
Just like any flagship luxury sedan, the i7 also comes with a long list of features. The one that Rekha bought has a brown-colored interior. It offers a curved display for infotainment and the instrument cluster, as well as a 31.3-inch 8K cinema screen mounted on the car’s roof that can be folded down. Additionally, the rear doors feature a 5.5-inch touchscreen to control the infotainment, climate control, and seats. Other features include multi-zone climate control, leather seats, electrically adjustable seats with memory and massage functions, and more.
The BMW i7 is available in one variant, the i7 xDrive 60, which generates 544 Ps and 745 Nm of peak torque. The car is equipped with two electric motors, one mounted on the front axle and the other on the rear axle. It is powered by a 101.7 kWh lithium-ion battery pack that provides a driving range of 591 km to 625 km. The BMW i7 supports both AC and DC fast charging. Using a 195 kW DC charger, the car can be charged from 10% to 80% in just 34 minutes. The price for a brand-new BMW i7 is Rs 2.03 crore, ex-showroom.
