The current 740e xDrive PHEV turns into the 745e xDrive iPerformance. Gone are the 2.0-liter four-cylinder and electric motor that combined for 322 hp and 369 lb-ft. They're replaced by a more powerful 3.0-liter inline-six and more powerful e-motor that produce 389 horsepower and 442 lb-ft. The upgraded lithium-ion battery pack tallies 12.0 kWh, up from 9.2 kWh, and is said to cover 30 miles as an EV. The price becomes $96,545, a $4,300 premium over the 740e.
Life at the top comes in the form of the M760i, sitting on standard 20-inch wheels, with a 6.6-liter twin-turbo V12 doling out 600 hp and 627 lb-ft. That's one less horse, but 37 more pound-feet, than in the 2019 model. The kingpins get off easiest, paying $158,695 for the 2020 version, just $1,000 more than for the 2019 model. The gas guzzler tax remains in effect here, though, which means an obligatory $1,700, for $160,395 in total.
Insider trading on configurator options includes Nappa leather, an upgrade over the standard leather, for an extra $1,500, plus $500 more if a buyer wants those hides quilted. The M Sport Package contributes hardcore looks for $3,400 on the 740i and 745e, or $3,000 on the 750i. Genuine handling improvements come with the $4,100 Autobahn Package and its variable ratio steering, rear-axle steering, and Active Comfort Drive with Road Preview. Themed interiors with full Merino leather from BMW Individual will cost $5,500, up from $4,000. The first 2020 BMW 7 Series units should hit dealerships in April.
