BMW M760e xDrive PHEV (2023) Price & Specs

The M760e xDrive – endowed with up to 420 kW – has quietly joined the BMW 7 Series range in SA. Here’s how much this plug-in hybrid derivative from the M division costs…

When the 7th-generation BMW 7 Series line-up – including petrol, diesel and fully electric powertrains – touched down in South Africa near the end of 2022, the Bavarian firm’s local division made no mention of the M760e xDrive derivative. Now, however, this plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) variant has quietly joined the range.

Thanks to the eagle-eyed folks over at, we know the M760e xDrive is priced from R3 090 000 before options, which sees it positioned at the very summit of the G70-generation luxury saloon range, where it slots in just above the battery-powered i7 xDrive60 M Sport (R3 010 000). As a reminder, the V8-powered 760i xDrive and fully electric i7 M70 xDrive are currently not offered in Mzansi.

Still, though not quite a full-fat M car, the M760e xDrive is technically the 1st M Performance vehicle from BMW M to feature a plug-in hybrid powertrain (while the XM is the 1st pukka M car with PHEV technology). A 280 kW/520 Nm twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre, straight-6 petrol engine combines with a new 145 kW electric motor (integrated into the 8-speed automatic transmission) to generate peak system outputs of 420 kW (accessed via a temporary boost “when particularly invigorating acceleration is the order of the day”) and 800 Nm.

As a result, the all-wheel-drive M760e – which has a listed kerb weight of 2 525 kg – completes the 0-100 kph sprint in a claimed 4.3 seconds before topping out at 250 kph. Thanks largely to a claimed all-electric range of up to 90 km (with an electric top speed of 140 kph), the PHEV version of BMW’s flagship luxury sedan boasts a WLTP-cycle fuel-consumption figure as low as 2.2 L/100 km (and a corresponding CO2 output of only 49 g/km). The lithium-ion battery is installed in the vehicle floor and has a useable capacity of 18.7 kWh, while maximum AC charging power comes in at 7.4 kW.

Specifying the R40 000 M Performance package adds items such as a black rear spoiler, M Sport brakes and gloss-black finishes for components such as the grille frame, rear trim strip and tailpipe finishers. BMW Group SA also offers the Luxury Package (R173 400), which comprises automatic doors, a Bowers & Wilkins Diamond surround-sound system, heat-reflecting laminated glass, the heat comfort package and a massage function for the front seats.

The Executive Package adds R68 600 to the price and includes features such as a special rear console, a massage function for the (now-multifunctional) rear seats and ventilation/heating for the rear pews. Upgrade to the Executive Lounge Package (R97 000) and you’ll also score uprated rear seats and the so-called “Professional” rear-seat entertainment system, complete with iDrive control. Finally, the BMW Individual Gran Lusso interior package – with all manner of “exclusive” materials and trim – will set you back a further R131 000.
