A new BMW 7 Series

Most Powerful 7 Series To Be Fully Electric

In a major announcement, BMW CEO Oliver Zipse confirmed suspicions that the new BMW 7 Series will be fully electric. The BMW 7 Series is a full-size luxury sedan that is now due for a new generation. Over the years, BMW has been steadily transitioning the brand and its faithful customers into a future of all-electric vehicles. They’ve done this by producing vehicles with different drive technologies side-by-side. The BMW 7 series will follow suit with four drive train variants. News that the most powerful 7 Series will be fully electric is worth paying attention to.

About the New BMW 7 Series Release

In the 2020 Annual Accounts Press Conference, Zipse had the following to say about the new BMW 7 Series release:

The next-generation 7 Series will be available with four drive train variants: petrol, diesel, plug-in hybrid and fully-electric. All drive trains will be based on a single architecture. And the top, most powerful 7 Series will be fully electric!

Zipse didn’t release any pricing information about the new BMW 7 Series, nor did he confirm any plan to launch the new all-electric 7 Series in any specific market. Whether or not the fully electric BMW 7 Series will be released in the U.S. is anybody’s guess at this point. But we do know BMW will be looking to compete with Tesla with the electric BMW 7 Series. 

It’s expected the 7 Series will be even more powerful than the twin-turbo 6.6-liter V12 currently found in the OG – the M760i. The M760i churns out 601 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque while racing from 0 – 62 in just 3.7 seconds. The all-new fully electric BMW will be coming in 2022. As of now, there is no news as to whether or not the new fully electric 7 Series will be called the i7.

2020 BMW 7 Series, BMW 7 Series performance

2020 BMW 7 Series: What’s New

The 2020 BMW 7 Series may just be the next in this long running series, but it certainly holds true to the traditions created, making it an excellent heir to the title. Almost everything BMW has done well in the past few years are included in this model, and if you’re looking for an advanced, sophisticated choice, this is it. 

What really sets this line apart is the BMW 7 series’ performance ratings. The entire series means great choices including six, eight, and twelve cylinder engines. You can even select plug-in hybrid options if you’re looking for something a little greener. The powertrain lineup has changed a little as well. In the 750i, they’ve added 80 horsepower to the V8 and 74lb-ft of torque. The hybrid got a new name (745e xDrive) thanks to it’s inline-six engine and a brand new power filled lithium-ion battery, all of which spelled 67 additional horsepower and 73lb-ft of additional torque.

If you’ve looked at the BMW 7 series in the past, you know what to expect, so the biggest change you’re going to notice initially is the larger grille. In fact, it’s 40 percent bigger than it was. The headlights and taillights have changed a bit too, as they now look a bit slimmer, and you can upgrade to Laser lights if you like the look of those over the typical LEDs. You may also notice the light bar across the back of this series.  The hood features stronger, more noticeable lines, and the front bumper’s air deflectors help to cool the brakes a bit. The deflectors on the sides also have larger, more noticeable outlets. You may also notice a wider tailpipe. 

The inside of this model has changed a little too. The instrument panel is now all digital, and you’ll find great acoustics. Each comes with a 10.25 inch iDrive touchscreen infotainment panel complete with voice recognition control. It does integrate with Apple CarPlay, and the backseat also includes entertainment screens and BMW headphones. You can even opt for a luxury rear seating package that adds adjustable seats as well as massage capabilities and heating power. There are three seating configurations, but the entire series has just one body length. 

Naturally, what the BMW 7 Series is really known for is comfort. You can always count on feeling like you’re riding on something as comfortable as a pillow, no matter what the road is like, and the cabin is, as expected, completely quiet. The steering is easy and steady, no matter what the speed, and acceleration is endlessly smooth. 

While most know this brand for the serious comfort it offers, these are BMWs, so performance certainly isn’t lacking. It does, however, vary by the model you’ve chosen. 

  • Both 740i models have standard rear-wheel drive and optional xDrive all-wheel drive. Expect 335 horsepower and 330 lb-ft of torque out of these, as well as the ability to move from zero to 60 in 5.3 seconds. You’ll see 22 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway. 
  • The 750i XDrive has a 4.4-liter turbo V8 with 523 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque. It can hit 60 in far less time, just 3.9 seconds, but the fuel economy isn’t quite as good, coming in at 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. 
  • The 745e xDrive hybrid has that inline-six with an electric motor, and the combination means 330 hp and 389 lb-ft of torque. It will hit 60 in 4.9 seconds, and you can get 16 miles out of a charge and 22 mpg with the combination after that. It’s currently rated for 56 MPGe. 
  • The M760i XDrive comes with a 6.6-liter turbocharged V12 for serious power. It has 600 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque. Expect to hit 60 in 3.6 seconds. Your fuel economy is better than you might imagine, coming in at 13 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway. 
  • The Alpina B7 has a 4.4-liter turbo V8 with 600 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. You’ll go from zero to 60 in 3.5 seconds with this one. It does sport a solid fuel economy rating with 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.  

No matter which one you choose, you’re going to have a driving experience you won’t soon forget.

BMW 7 Series iDrive System with Gesture Control

Black BMW 7 Series

BMW isn’t afraid of technology in the least. In fact, BMW heartily embraces technology and all that it can do for their cars and for their customers. In the past they’ve installed everything from the highest quality speakers to touchscreen consoles for the utmost control of your car. You can get directions, find your favorite song, call home, and do much, much more than ever before all while within your car.

BMW iDrive With Gesture Control on the 7 Series

BMW’s iDrive has been a part of their vehicle line for a long time, but now it’s going to get an overhaul at the same time that the 2016 BMW 7 Series becomes available. How could they have possibly made the iDrive any better? It’s BMW – that’s what they do.

Rather than just have actual buttons and touchscreen capabilities, the new iDrive infotainment system will also include gesture control. Gesture control is newest to the game of car technology, and if you’re thinking of today’s movies (picture Tony Stark in his lab, gesturing at his holographics to move them around), then you’ve got the right idea. A 3D sensor in the device will detect specific motions that have been predefined. These are going to be the most common motions, such as turning up volume, or answering a phone call. However, you can use these motions to set up different iDrive or navigation functions as well. Not sure if gesture control will be available for certain screens? Don’t worry – the iDrive will let you know via an icon on the screen that indicates whether or not gesture control can be used.

Gesture control is still early tech for BMW and no doubt they’re looking to add even more possibilities for a wholly hands-free experience. Until then, keep an eye out for the 2016 BMW 7 Series for sale in South Florida – once it’s out there, you can have a great time playing with the new tech.

Woman in China Purchased a BMW 7 Series with Small Notes

BMW 7 Series

Sometimes when you want a BMW, you’ve just got to have a BMW. In the case of one woman in China, she really wanted to own one – though her method of payment wasn’t exactly conventional.

Most of us in the United States will pay for a car in various ways, from leases to loans using credit, checks, and the occasional bit of cash. Though when cash comes into play with a vehicle, the bills are large in order to make paying easier for everyone. That and it’s a large purchase – larger bills make sense.

But in China, a businesswoman went a slightly different route. She purchased a BMW 730Li, a part of the BMW 7 Series for sale, from a Zhengzhou dealership. The car itself costs around RMB 1,000,000, which equates to about $161,000. Like many people, she paid for a large portion of the car right then and there, around 100,000 of it. However, the story becomes interesting because she paid for the BMW in small notes.

Because all that money needs to be exact, the dealership had to use 20 of its employees to go through every bill and carefully count, bundle, and continue to count until everything was finished. This took all of them around 6 hours to do. The image of the money laid out is astonishing as the bundles stretched across the floor and weighed about 100kg total. Once the counting was finished, Ms. Li, the woman purchasing the BMW, paid for the remainder of the car with a credit card. The next challenge? The dealership taking all those notes to the bank.

If you’re looking for a BMW 7 Series for sale, you should check out the Braman Florida BMW dealership locations. Paying in small bills or not, they’ll be happy to show you the selection of BMWs and help you to find the right one (though ultimately, they would prefer you leave the small bills at home – just for simplicity’s sake!).
