Here's your first look at the brand new electric BMW 7 Series
Ahead of its launch, BMW releases a few teaser images of the i7 saloon
Yep, it's now apparently a "hallmark BMW design feature". Ahead of the new deluxe limo's full launch in a few weeks, BMW has released a few teaser pics of its new flagship and S-Class rival: the 7 Series.
It'll be launched in April as both a regular combustion-engined car, and a fully electric saloon running with an 'i7' tag. The electric version, says BMW, will become the most powerful 7 Series on offer. Times are changing.
Exemplified no doubt, by that new face. Clearly taking cues from the BMW iX, the new 7 showcases BMW's 'hallmark' kidney grille - this time with an illuminated frame - matched to a pair of very slim lights made from crystal glass elements. Yeah, let's move quickly on to the tech.
Indeed, BMW reckons it'll move very quickly, and far. The company is claiming a range of around 380 miles for the i7. The 523bhp iX xDrive 50 offers similar range from its 105.2kWh battery, with a 0-62mph time of 4.6s, for some reference. Should be good to drive, at least according to its makers. BMW's Frank Weber said: "It combines the best driving experience with the ultimate digital experience. This makes it the ideal vehicle for forward-thinking, responsible decision-makers and avant-garde pioneers."
Inside, there's the latest generation iDrive, while in the back, there's a 31in display dubbed 'Theatre Screen' which folds out of the roof liner and offers 8K resolution. What was that about not sitting too close to the TV?
Anyway, enough for you to chew on for now. More as we have it...
