The seventh generation all-new BMW 7 Series along with the first-ever BMW i7 has been launched in India. With this, the BMW flagship will be available in petrol, diesel, and electric powertrains. The BMW 740i M Sport is locally produced at BMW Group Plant Chennai while the all-electric BMW i7 xDrive60 is available as a completely built-up unit (CBU). The diesel variant will be introduced later. The cars can be booked at BMW India dealerships. Deliveries will commence from March 2023.
Mr. Vikram Pawah, President, of BMW Group India said, “The seventh generation of the BMW 7 Series marks a turning point. It is a symbol of ‘Forwardism’ that continuously challenges the ordinary, a unique quality distinguishing those who shape what’s next. But one thing hasn’t changed – it is still the measure for all things luxury. The all-new 7 is the face of the new luxury class design language which stuns through its presence, progressiveness, and emotion. The 7 once again reaffirms its status as an innovation leader and a pioneer of trailblazing digital experience. It is a statement, a piece of art – ensuring lasting fascination tomorrow and beyond.”
