With more and more electric vehicles available, you can find an all-electric match that’ll fit into your lavish lifestyle. BMW has a few models, including the 2024 BMW i5 and BMW i7.

In the following BMW i5 vs. BMW i7 guide, the team at Santa Fe BMW goes over the differences in selection and performance, so you’ll see the highlights for each model.
