Review: Borgward BXi7 SUV

Based on a concept the BXi7 is the Borward’s first pure-electric offering. This battery-powered SUV features two electric motors that, combined, generate 178kW/390Nm, enabling a performance of 100km/h in 7.9 seconds and the ability to travel up to 375 km on a single charge.

Featuring Borgward’s all-new EV technology, the BXi7’s new “intelligent thermal management system” is said to allow the battery pack to perform optimally even when the outside temp is -30C or 55 C. Meanwhile, takes just 45 minutes for an 80% charge using a rapid charger.

The BXi7 comes as a four-door, 5/6/7-seater, self-supporting and reinforced lightweight steel body with safety passenger cell, energy-absorbing crash zones front/back, side impact protection
