Miles per gallon-equivalent is how the EPA provides efficiency ratings for battery-electric vehicles in a way that can be used in comparison with gasoline-powered vehicles. Actual mileage will vary depending on driving conditions, driving habits, elevation changes, weather, accessory usage (lights, climate control), vehicle condition and other factors.Related: Top 10 Most Efficient Electric Cars

Charge time estimates are based on using a 240-volt charging circuit charging from empty to 100% battery capacity. Level 2 is the fastest way to charge at home, though charging times can vary and are dependent on factors such as the capabilities of the charging circuit, charging equipment and the vehicle’s onboard charger.

Battery capacity Battery capacity
Battery capacity is measured in kilowatt-hours, which is a measure of how much energy is used over time. A 70-kWh battery has more energy capacity than a 50-kWh battery and would result in a longer driving range if all other factors were equal. But more battery capacity doesn’t always mean longer range because of differences in energy consumption from vehicle to vehicle. Battery capacity provided by Chrome Data, a JD Power company.

What Is the 2019 BMW 7 Series?
The 2019 BMW 7 Series is a full-size luxury sedan that seats up to five. The lineup consists of the six-cylinder 740i and the V-8-powered 750i. An M performance version is also available, as is an Alpina B7 performance model. A plug-in hybrid 740e is also available; it features all-wheel drive and pairs a turbocharged four-cylinder engine with an electric motor.
The 740i and 750i are available with rear- or all-wheel drive. The M760i has all-wheel drive, as does the B7. Competitors include the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, Audi A8 and Lexus LS. An updated 7 Series debuts as a 2020 model.
What’s New on the 2019 BMW 7 Series?
Standard active safety features include blind spot warning, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, city collision mitigation and rear cross-traffic alert. A one-year trial of Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity is also standard.
What Features in the 2019 BMW 7 Series Are Most Important?
Standard luxury features include an air suspension, a power trunk lid, soft-closing doors, a panoramic moonroof, a power rear sunshade, four-zone automatic air conditioning and a digital instrument cluster.

Should I Buy the 2019 BMW 7 Series?
