The seventh 7 is the daring new face of fullsize luxury, and BMW is now giving us a comprehensive tour of its ultimate flagship. The program walks you through many configurations of the G70, which is the model’s lone codename since the stately sedan will only be available in one length. The M760e is a plug-in hybrid that has been stretched even farther than the previous generation long-wheelbase 7er. It is available in both ICE and EV variants, as well as a combination of the two.
The Mercedes S-Class competitor, as seen in the Concept XM and the X7 LCI, has a massive grille with an illuminated contour flanked by split headlamps. The polarizing design is present in both the combustion-engined and electric variants, with optional crystals integrated in the higher daytime running lights, which also act as pulsing turning signals.
The sheer length of the rear doors, which are now automated in the same manner as on a Rolls-Royce, indicates that the car is bigger than its predecessor. The huge greenhouse is also an indication that BMW has increased the size of the 7 Series in all dimensions, while the conspicuous Hofmeister kink is more expressive than before.
Before getting on to the zero-emissions i7 with its blue highlights, the film goes through some of the alloy wheel options and two-tone paint treatments. BMW shows off the M760e briefly, with its quad exhaust tips reminiscent of the departed M760i. Because the V12 engine is not returning with the G70, experiencing the BMW Group’s biggest engine is now only feasible by upgrading to a Rolls-Royce.
While the car’s design has sparked debate, the inside has been generally appreciated. The “less is more” philosophy is more apparent in the 7er than in any other BMW, and although some may say that all of the displays are a little excessive, the overall minimalist design is elegant. The G70 receives the automaker’s more compact rocker switch, which is available in crystal as an option.
15 minutes is just not enough time to go through all of the technology available in the current range-topper, which includes a door-mounted touchscreen and a massive Theatre Display installed on the roof. Dual tablets may be added to the rear of the front seats as an option for even greater screen real estate. BMW’s tech-laden vehicle has amenities like as electric sun blinds, 5G connection, deployable footrests, and headrest speakers.
The 7 Series with combustion engines and the 7 Series with electric motors will start on sale in November, with the 660-horsepower i7 M70 following in 2023.
