BMW India has launched the all new 7-Series in India at a starting price of Rs 1.1 crore for the Design Pure Excellence variant. The M Sport version is priced at Rs 1.5 crore, ex-showroom pan India.
There are two engine options, the diesel 730Ld and the petrol 750Li. The three litre six cylinder diesel produces 265PS and 620Nm@2,000 to 2,500rpm. The petrol unit displaces 4.4-litres and develops 450PS and 650Nm@1,800 to 4,500 rpm.
While the diesel variants are locally produced, customers can also opt for a CBU 730Ld. The CBU units can be personalised to a customer’s individual tastes. The petrol BMW 750Li in both Design Pure Excellence and M Sport will be imported as CBUs with the option to customise them too.
The new sixth generation BMW 7 Series features a Carbon Core body that makes the car over 130kgs lighter than its predecessor. It also gets the latest in BMWâ€™s gizmos such as Laser headlights, gesture control, BMW Touch Command System, BMW display Key and Remote Control Parking. The driver can park the 7 Series in tight spaces without being in the car by using the touchscreen on the key. The new BMW 7 Series also has a panoramic glass roof which the company calls as sky lounge. It has over 15,000 light elements that creates the right ambience, says BMW.
BMW adds that the two-axle air suspension automatically adjusts the ride height of the car irrespective of the load being carried.
The new BMW 7-Series will be available in showrooms soon. We have driven the car in the US and canâ€™t wait to see how it performs in India.
