Introducing the all-new BMW 7 Series, the flagship of BMW. It embodies everything BMW stands for and features a great deal of innovations you’ve never seen before. You might be thinking of some kind of special agent Hollywood movie, but this is BMW technology available today. The all-new BMW 7 series can automatically pull in and out of your garage and a narrow parking space. All you need to do is press this button on the Display Key. A number of sensors ensure that your BMW 7 Series can securely pull in and out of the parking space by automatically supervising braking, acceleration and steering. Once settled in, there’s no need to sit inside the car. The engine turns off automatically. Starting and killing the engine is of course done remotely with the Display Key.
All you need to know About The New BMW 7 Series
This is how luxury should look like today. High quality materials, craftsmanship, beautifully designed, you immediately feel comfortable. BMW designed it as a place of comfort and well-being, but it will also set the pace when it comes to innovations. Just sitting here in the driver’s seat lets you realize the car’s driving qualities will be outstanding, both in comfort and dynamics. Very impressive is also the way to interact with the all-new BMW 7 Series.
A never-seen-before feature. You can operate the system via simple hand gestures. So you can keep your eyes on the road. There are four predefined gestures. And an additional fifth one for customizing. Take a phone call, or decline it. Raise the volume, or lower it. This gesture is the customized gesture. So no more pushing buttons from now on. Alternatively, you can use the new touch screen. You can zoom in on your map, for example, for a better orientation. Or dial a phone number. You can even talk to the car.
The intelligent voice command recognizes everyday phrasing. “Show me the next gas station on my way.” There have never been so many options to operate the car. The all-new BMW 7 Series comes with the next generation head-up display, increased in size by 75%, and with new graphics. Before I show you the next level of comfort, this is the wireless charging function.
No more cables necessary. The executive lounge is the perfect place to work and to relax. If you still have some work to do, use the integrated table and enjoy the silence of the car. Another new and innovative feature is BMW Touch Command. This tablet computer performs all usual tasks you would expect from a tablet, but it is also your remote control to a great number of comfort, entertainment and navigation functions. And after a hard day’s work, use the tablet to kick in the vitality program or to use the massage seats. You wish to relax? Change the seat position, the interior lights, or operate the air conditioning. You can operate entertainment options. And check your messages. All in all, you have 24 different functions at your command, with BMW Touch Command. By using the BMW Touch Command tablet, you can change the seating position of the Executive Lounge. The perfect position to enjoy another stunning novelty.
The Sky Lounge underlines the luxurious atmosphere during nighttime driving. More than 15,000 light patterns in the glass create an exceptional interior light ambience. The light patterns match to the six different colors of the magnificent Ambient light. The Ambient highlight further enhances the lounge character.
To complete this luxurious experience for all of your senses, the all-new BMW 7 Series features the Ambient Air package, with eight different fragrances to choose from. To give you an impressive entrance and exit, the all-new BMW 7 Series is equipped with the new Welcome Light Carpet. It elegantly illuminates the collateral areas of the car with white-light patterns.
Speaking of light… this is the next generation of headlight technology. BMW Laserlight improves visibility and light distribution by a considerable margin. Compared to a standard LED high beam, the beam range doubles from 300 up to 600 meters. Improved visibility even extends to curvy roads thanks to Curvelight, while, at the same time, the selective beam doesn’t dazzle upcoming traffic. You know it’s a BMW 7 Series with Laserlight when you see the blue line in the headlights. The kidney grille not only underlines the strong presence of the front, it also contributes to lower consumption and CO2 emissions.
Now, depending on the engine temperature, the additional flaps with chrome bars open or close to improve the drag coefficient. BMW was the first one to put carbon fiber into a production car. Just think of BMW i or BMW M. Now carbon fiber comes to the all-new BMW 7 Series. Selected sections of the body structure have been fitted with carbon fiber parts.
As part of the Efficient Lightweight strategy, they contribute to an overall weight reduction of up to 130 kilograms over the predecessor. And they make the structure extremely rigid. As a result, the effortless feeling of driving is unmatched in this segment. It goes without saying that the all-new BMW 7 Series is equipped with the latest driver assistance functions by BMW ConnectedDrive. For one there is the lane keeping assistant with the active side collision protection, for improved safety. And there are also the traffic jam assistant and the steering and lane control assistant, which automatically keeps you in your lane for speeds up to 210 km/h.
Now that’s a huge step towards autonomous driving. A further new feature that elevates comfort and driving dynamics to another level is Executive Drive Pro. Active chassis components keep the car in perfect balance. In curves, the car stays nearly horizontal, and longitudinal body movement can be minimized. This stereo camera delivers information of the road condition to the car, so it can react to road bumps at lower speeds.
It’s needless to say that the driver of the all-new BMW 7 series has access to a multitude of ConnectedDrive services. Established and proven ones, such as internet access, real-time traffic information and the favorable concierge service. But also new ones, like gesture command and remote-control parking. And just a few months after the all-new BMW 7 Series’ launch, an eDrive version will set a new benchmark for efficiency in its class. You can expect no more than 49 grams of CO2 emissions per kilometer.
