BMW reveals details & new previews of the all-new 7 Series (G70)

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Technology and exclusivity in a new dimension.


At today's BMW Group Annual Conference, Frank Weber, Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG for Development, presents the first details of the future BMW 7 Series.

Munich. A few weeks before its world premiere and on the occasion of today's BMW Group Annual Conference, Frank Weber, Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG for Development, presents details of the new BMW 7 Series. The focus is initially on technology highlights, a new front-end design based on hallmark BMW design features and a unique interior experience consisting of digital features and exclusive materials. In April, the premium car manufacturer will present the all-electric BMW i7 (combined power consumption: 19.7 – 18.9 kWh/100 km according to WLTP; CO2 emissions: 0 g/km; electric range: 580 – 610 km according to WLTP; up to an estimated 305 mi EPA electric range; forecast based on the vehicle's development status to date) and with it the entire new BMW 7 Series. Being the first all-electric luxury sedan in the world, it brings innovative driving pleasure to the road with a range of more than 600 kilometers.

With the all-electric BMW i7, the Bavarian premium automobile manufacturer is expanding its range of locally emission-free vehicles to the exclusive segment of its top-of-the-range models. "The new BMW 7 Series is absolutely trail-blazing in every respect. Like no other model, the BMW 7 Series stands for BMW's innovative strength," says Weber. "The all-electric BMW i7 is also the most powerful BMW 7 Series. It combines the best driving experience with the ultimate digital experience. This makes it the ideal vehicle for forward-thinking, responsible decision-makers and avant-garde pioneers."

In the BMW i7, the characteristic design elements of twin round headlights and BMW grille have been completely reinterpreted to achieve a modern and distinctive look. Some of the special design statements are upper light elements made of exclusive crystal glass and the illuminated contour of the kidney grille.

In the interior, the focus is on the innovative user experience created with new My Modes and the latest generation of the iDrive operating system. My Modes enable the driver to precisely customise the car’s driving characteristics and interior ambience. In addition to the BMW Curved Display, a new type of light and function strip on the instrument panel and the doors provides a visual and haptic quality that is as modern as it is exclusive. The BMW Interaction Bar is part of the ambient lighting and also features integrated control buttons. In addition, the newly developed Sky Lounge panoramic glass roof adds to the feeling of spaciousness, modernity and well-being that prevails in the interior of the new BMW 7 Series with LED light threads that can be individually adjusted.

The rear of the BMW i7 offers outstanding travel comfort and sets new entertainment standards offering a unique cinematic experience. The BMW Theatre Screen, which moves out of the roof liner, is an ultra-wide screen with a 31 inch screen, 32 : 9 panoramic display format and 8K streaming resolution. It transforms the rear seats into an exclusive, private cinema lounge where passengers can select their personal entertainment programme from a diverse range of streaming offers and enjoy watching it while driving in BMW's new top-of-the-range models.

This size grill works very well on the x7 I think it might work on the 7 series as well, looking forward to the complete reveal

Thanks, should be interesting to see how the 7 compares with the W223.

What does “locally emission-free” mean?

Tried my luck "enhancing" the hi-res version off BMW's website. You can make out some additional details.

X5 has proportionally correct grill IMO.
This is way too big and made worse by the slit headlights.

Is this an SUV? It's positively gigantic-looking. I'm honestly confused, but it's still early too…

I quite literally said this same thing to a coworker 20+ years ago when I first saw pictures of the E65.

One word. WTF?

Hope the sales figures become so miserable that they replace the model as soon as fuck.

I am yet to find any redeeming aspect of headlight design which clearly mimics what humans with myopia tend to do: squinting to see better.

No, thats also related to BEV's.
The car when driving is emission free, that's just a safe wording for the case If the electricity you are driving with has been produced with fossil energy.

2013 BMW 128i  [10.00]
In over 50-years of BMW ownership—including two brand-new motorcycles—I have never purchased a new BMW car or SUV. Nothing about this unveiling is anticipated to change that trajectory.

In fact this may be my signal that it's time to retire from selling what used to be BMWs.

But, to be clear, this is not intended to appeal to me. I'm not a buyer for a $100,000 sedan, and I'm not Chinese, Russian, or Saudi by heritage. Should translate fairly easily to a new Rolls-Royce series, if that's any consolation. It's almost as if BMW is intentionally killing off what's left of their sedan sales in favor of SUVs. Maybe a good oil crisis can reverse that, once again?

Looks like they are trying to use some of the Rolls Royce styling on this.

Looks interesting but they are forcing this grille gimmick way too hard. What is their motivation in trying to merge the kidneys together into one single generic non-BMW grille? It cheapens the look so much. When the grille is gigantic this effect is magnified. At least on something like the M2C, that cheap single grille is on the small side.

I'm loving that, are there another set of lights underneath the bonnet/hood level ones? I can't quite make that out as the previous guessing game renders had them.

BMW grills are huge but the problem isn't their size its the fact that they don't fit. In the G82/G80/G22 The grill looks like it was just slapped on at the end. But in this i think they made it work well with the other components. Yes headlights are small however they arent too small like on the XM. This looks like it has presence (which has been lacking ever since the E38), and still looks good. Cant wait wait they do with the rear because I find that to be very interesting on the spyshots and the interior may just blow the S class out of existence with the 8k screen.
