NEW BMW 7 SERIES FIRST DETAILS


BMW Australia has provided details of the seventh-generation 7 Series that’s due to arrive
downunder in the fourth quarter of 2022.

The wheelbase is 3215mm, which is 5mm longer than the sixth-generation long wheelbase
model. The length, width and height have increased by 131mm, 48mm and 65mm
respectively.

A combination of dynamic ability and first-class comfort are delivered through
comprehensive chassis upgrades as well as by fitment of two-axle air suspension and
adaptive damping as standard across the line-up.

An innovative technology toolkit with new generation of sensors, enhanced software stack
and powerful computing platform allies with the latest suite of cutting-edge active safety
technologies.

Significantly, the new generation 7 Series model will also include a fully electric version,
the i7, which joins BMW’s rapidly expanding line-up of forward-thinking, zero emissions
mobility solutions.

The addition of the i7 will underline BMW Group as one of the leading manufacturers in
Australia for the breadth of its electrified vehicle line-up.

Development of the new 7 Series is in full alignment with BMW’s primary focus on CO2
reduction and all-encompassing sustainability strategy with use of green energy and a
high proportion of natural and recycled materials in the production phase.

The new BMW 7 Series line-up will include two models, the 740i and i7 xDrive60, with
pricing for the former starting at $268,900 and the latter at $297,900.
