New BMW 7 Series Redefines Modern Luxury, Brings Unprecedented Innovations
|   Wednesday, July 01, 2015
Cutting-edge technologies on an ultra light design, powertrain, chassis, operating system and control and smart connectivity, all these combined with the driving pleasure emblematic for the brand together with comfort and a unique inside experience – these are the highlights of the BMW luxury sedan which aims to rewrite the market standards.

Regarding its dynamic, efficiency, driving comfort and safety while driving, the new BMW 7 Series comes with a rich package of innovations such as the use of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP) in the body structure (innovative technology found on the BMW i and a first time in this segment), new engine generation with the latest BMW Group technology, a plug-in hybrid system for the new BMW 740e (which benefits from the BMW i experience), active chassis system Executive Drive Pro (with proactive adjustment of the drivetrain based on information provided by a video camera with stereoscopic vision and the navigation system), driving Experience Control button with ADAPTIVE mode (along with the Sport, Comfort and EcoPro settings that make running adjustments automatically, depending on situation and driving style), and lastly BMW laser headlights (world premiere in the segment, the first large series model with this option).


The BMW Efficient Lightweight solution contribute to reducing the weight of the new BMW 7 Series with up to 130 kilograms over the previous generation. The central element is the Carbon Core Body luxury sedan structure, a product of technology transfer from the BMW i development. The new BMW 7 Series is the first car in its segment which combines CFRP industrial products with steel and aluminum.

The clever body concept is using this approach of combined materials to increase the resistance and rigidity of the passenger cell - at the same time significantly reduces the vehicle's weight. This performance is all the more remarkable, as optional equipment has been expanded significantly and thus brought additional weight.
The new models also feature the most advanced BMW Efficient Dynamics technology package, which together with BMW Efficient Lightweight is responsible for fuel consumption and emission performance unprecedented in this segment. The undisputed leader is the 730d.

The six-cylinder powerplant that develops a maximum power 195 kW / 265 hp and a maximum torque of 620 Nm needed on the EU test cycle just 4.5 liters of fuel per 100 km and CO2 emissions stood at just 119 g per km, all this while fitting the smallest 18-inch wheels. The same CO2 emission figure per km was the performance for which the BMW 1 Series 118d, a compact city car, was rewarded with the World Green Car of the Year seven years ago.

The new BMW 7 Series is the first car in the world that customers can maneuver in and out of the parking space or garage without anyone behind the wheel. Therefore, parking option allows remote access to very narrow parking spaces where car access would otherwise be extremely difficult. Using BMW Display Key - also a new development - the driver can control the car to park or leave the parking lot completely automatically.

The new BMW 7 Series will be produced, like its predecessors, at the BMW plant from Dingolfing. It combines many years of experience in building a luxury sedan with unrivaled global experience in lightweight design.

Within the global production network of the BMW Group, the BMW plant from Dingolfing is a competence center for aluminum processing and became the first auto plant in the world where CFRP is used in bodywork production as part of hybrid techniques.
