BMW: The diesel 7 Series, 740d M Sport, and i7 M70 xDrive have been introduced by German automaker BMW in India. Their respective prices are Rs 1.81 crore and Rs 2.50 crore. The BMW i7 M70 xDrive will be a CBU, whereas the BMW 740d M Sport is domestically produced at BMW’s Chennai factory. In this article, we will tell you all about these amazing cars.
BMW i7 M70 xDrive details
The strongest M-division all-electric vehicle produced by the Bavarian automaker is the BMW i7 M70 xDrive. At 660 PS and an incredible 1100 Nm, it has two electric motors installed on each axle. BMW states that its top speed is 250 kmph, and its sprint time from 0 to 100 km/h is 3.7 seconds. A 101.7 kWh battery, good for 560km, powers these electric motors.
BMW 740d M Sport details
The petrol engine that was standard on the ICE-powered 7 Series was, to be honest, not the most economical. BMW has now launched the diesel model, which features a 3-liter, 6-cylinder engine that produces 286 horsepower and 650 Nm, for those who choose a more fuel-efficient option. This is enough to get the sedan from a standstill to a tonne in six seconds and reach a top speed of 250 kmph.
What did the company say?
Vikram Pawah, President, of BMW Group India, said, “The all-new BMW 7 Series defines the ultimate luxury sedan and sets new standards of luxury and exclusivity. The 7 has bedazzled the high-end segment with its new design language, powerful dynamics, comfort and trailblazing digital experience.”
“With the addition of the BMW i7 M70 xDrive and the BMW 740d M Sport, our flagship is now available as a petrol, diesel, electric, and an all-electric performance model. This diversification allows us to cater to all customer preferences and meet the overwhelming demand for the 7 Series in the Indian market. As the vehicle of choice of leaders and luminaries with next-level style and substance, the 7 will continue to shape forwardism,” he added.
