The 7-series sedans for its 2020 batch has launched by BMW. The 740e xDrive has a plug-in hybrid 389 HP V6 with a 12.0 kWh battery. It allows for some grocery-getting purely on electrons. The combo will accelerate you to 60 mph in just 4.9 seconds. There is also a 523 HP V8 on the 750i xDrive or a 600-horsepower twin-turbo V12 on the 760i. The 7-series is as much about the driver tech as the mechanical bits. It has a new digital instrument cluster to go with the huge infotainment system, along with a touch display to entertain rear-seat passengers.
BMW also said that people can also get a Bowers & Wilkins Diamond 3D surround sound system. There is an intelligent personal assistant that learns your preferences for seat heating, frequently used routes, etc. It can even make casual conversation. BMW has announced a new version of its iDrive system, powered by Live Cockpit Professional.
The active driving assistant comes with an active lane keeping assistant with side collision avoidance, steering and traffic jam assistant, automatic lane change, evasion assistant and more. The parking assistant can propose routes that offer you a better chance of finding a parking spot. It can automatically park into spaces either parallel or perpendicular to the road. You can also be used to automatically maneuver out of a spot, too. There’s no pricing yet announced and the new models launch into the market in the month of April 2019.
