Yesterday, BMW took the wraps off its all-new 7-Series flagship sedan, which arrives in showrooms this fall, as a 2016 model. For the U.S. market, BMW has confirmed that the new 7-Series will be available initially with 740i and 750i xDrive variants, with a 740e xDrive plug-in hybrid due next year. Pricing for the 2016 7-Series starts at $82,250, including a $950 destination charge, and all examples headed to the U.S. will feature the car’s long-wheelbase bodystyle.
Now that you know the basic facts, sit back and enjoy this video that BMW could have labeled “a day in the life of a 7-Series owner”. A figure is shown using the car along with a number of its features including the new active grille shutters, laser headlights, semi-autonomous steering assist, remote control parking and the gesture control interface.
We'll be getting our first, up close look at the new 7-Series at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show in September. Hopefully we'll be able to bring you a first drive report shortly after.
