New BMW 7 Series spotted in Munich!
The Series 7 will debut in the middle of next spring , with its commercial launch scheduled for the end of winter 2023, around the month of March . The firm will implement a range with gasoline, diesel and
two plug-in hybrids, four and six cylinders in line and V8. A new generation of propellants, with 48 Volt technology and an unprecedented combustion system to meet the demanding Euro 7 standard . All with 8-speed automatic transmission and with the possibility of being associated with xDrive all-wheel drive.
Looks like the grill has been leaked.
- Will introduce the TÜ2 generation of B58 engine.
- Production 07/22-06/29 with LCI in 03/26
- Intro models: worldwide 735i (B58U2, 270hp), 740i (B58M2, 370hp), 750ix (S68, 535hp), i7 xDrive50 (480hp), possibly others; US 740i, 750ix, i7 xDrive50.

- Choice of M Sport or Luxury interior and exterior design

- Totally new headlights, with the same “Iconic Glow” designation as the X6 grille. That grille will be available too of course.

- A new driver assist package called “Motorway assistant”.
- A whole bunch of BMW Individual customizations.

BMW has started peeling away some of the artificial skin of the next-gen 7 Series.
Mandatory stickers reading ‘Hybrid Test Vehicle’ tell us that this version of the upcoming 7er uses an internal combustion engine with electrical assistance, and plug-in capabilities, as it has a charging port on the left front fender. As you can imagine, details surrounding it are a well-preserved secret, though it is understood to be joined by the usual inline-six and V8 power units. A battery-electric variant, dubbed the i7, will be introduced as well, perhaps with a 120 kWh battery that will enable a 435-mile (700-km) range, taking the battle to the Mercedes-Benz EQS and Tesla Model S
