Full Story:

The luxury sedan segment has been getting fiercer with German carmakers adding new flagship vehicles. While previously it was Mercedes-Benz and Audi that revealed the new S-Class and A8L last year, now it is BMW that has taken the wraps off the latest iteration of the 7 Series sedan.

Now in its seventh generation, the latest 7 Series is significantly different from its predecessor in almost every sense. Not only does 2022 7 Series sport a new design tenet but also comes with a new interior layout. And as a befitting answer to the S-Class and A8, the new 7 Series comes loaded with a slew of modern provisions, including a 31-inch widescreen 8K display (but more on that later).

The new 7 Series has a completely new styling that is reminiscent of the new X7 that was unveiled a few days ago.

It features an even bigger kidney grille (with illuminated surrounds) that is now flanked by a split headlamp setup that includes LED DRLs on the top while the main LED headlamp unit is located below that. The new 7 Series has a minimalist design with fewer creases and this is evident by the profile that features a clean design with a prominent character line running along the length of the vehicle. The overall aesthetics of the 7 Series are further enhanced by the split LED tail light, a chiselled rear bumper, flush-fitted door handles, and up to 22-inch alloy wheels. The new BMW 7 Series features a new interior layout and makes extensive use of premium materials such as crystals, metal inlays, cashmere seat covering, and more.

The centre stage is taken by the large BMW Curved display that includes a touchscreen infotainment system. The 7 Series also features BMW Interaction Bar (with touch-sensitive buttons), head-up display, augmented reality for the navigation system, digital instrument cluster, ambient lighting, heated centre console and door pads, ventilated and heated seats, Bowers and Wilkins stereo system, executive lounge rear seats (optional), and a panoramic sunroof with built-in mood-lighting panels. The highlight, however, has to be the 31-inch 8K screen (Theatre screen) for rear passengers. BMW 7 Series will be available with several powertrain options, including the hybrid M760e xDrive variant that will have a six-cylinder engine and a 48V hybrid system capable of making an additional 39 bhp during hard acceleration. This powerplant develops 563 bhp with 800 Nm of peak torque. There will also be an all-electric version of the 7 Series, christened i7 which will have a 101.7 kWh battery pack with two electric motors to develop over 591 bhp and maximum torque of more than 1,000 Nm. This electric sedan will offer a claimed range of 624 km per charge.
