BMW launches the new 7-series in India @ Rs. 92.9 lakh

The flagship of the BMW brand, the new BMW 7-series was launched during an exclusive event in Mumbai.

The new BMW 7-series is available in diesel and petrol variants at all BMW dealerships across India and the deliveries will start from May 1, 2013 onwards.

730Ld will be locally produced at the BMW Plant Chennai in a diesel variant. The BMW 740Li, BMW 750Li and the BMW 760Li will be imported as CBU (Completely Built-Up Units) in petrol variants.

The locally produced BMW 730Ld has one of the most smooth-running, light, efficient and responsive engines in its class. It has a BMW TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder in-line diesel engine combining CommonRail direct injection and a turbocharger with variable turbine geometry that delivers more power (190 kw/258 hp) than the previous model. The BMW 730Ld produces a maximum torque of 560 nm at 1,500 rpm and accelerates from 0-100 km/hr in 6.2 seconds to a top speed of 250 km/hr.

The new eight-speed automatic transmission with cruise control performs smooth, almost imperceptible gear shifts. At any time, in any gear, the transmission collaborates perfectly with the engine, enabling it to develop its full power and efficiency.

"For seven decades, the flagship from BMW has stunned the world through highest level of style and contemporary luxury with maximum driving dynamics. It represents the best we have to offer. The new BMW 7-series makes a compelling individual statement convincing you not only with its high-quality, exclusive character, but also with its functionality. It achieves something extraordinary: you enjoy being a passenger as much as a driver," said Philipp von Sahr, President, BMW Group India.

The inner strength of the new BMW 7-series is expressed in its design, inventiveness and power delivery. It's demonstrated by unconditional comfort and safety. By typical sportiness. By outstanding efficiency. And it all combines to establish the uniquely commanding stature and natural leadership position of the new BMW 7-series.

The new BMW 7-series is available in alpine white as non-metallic paintwork and in the following ten metallic paintworks - black sapphire, cashmere silver, glacier silver, havanna, imperial blue brilliant effect, midnight blue, milano beige, sophisto grey II brilliant effect, space grey and mineral white. The standard Dakota and exclusive Nappa leather upholstery is available in barrique red, black, ivory white, oyster, saddle brown light and veneto beige colour combinations. Interior trims offered are fine-wood trim Burr Walnut with inlays, Fine-wood trim Ash Grain Anthracite, Fine-wood trim Fineline high-gloss and Fine-wood trim Polar Grain Light high-gloss.

"The most successful 7-series ever, the fifth-generation of the BMW 7-series is prepared for the second phase of its life. This is the most extensive overhaul a BMW model has ever seen. As the benchmark in the luxury segment, it now boasts considerably enhanced product substance that provides unmatched levels of luxury, comfort and technology," Philipp von Sahr added further.
