Leading the charge for BMW’s rival to the Mercedes S-Class and Audi A8 is the all-electric i7, a 544 horsepower e-limo that also has the Tesla Model S and Lucid Air in its snouty sights.

But whooshy performance and silent refinement are only part of the story here – the real action happens in the backs seats, with the fold-down Theatre Mode screen for the most cinema-like experience ever in a car.
