The BMW 7-Series is the brand's technological tour de force.
Much like the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, it's supposed to be the vehicle in the Bavarian's portfolio that displays the latest technological advancements.
Though, I reckon the all-new i8 and i3 will steal that title.
That's because BMW's electric vehicles are utilizing the latest driving technology for optimal driving efficiency, and construction techniques that create lightweight — and strong — frames, thanks to carbon fiber reinforced plastic. Expect more of the EVs tech to make its way into normal gasoline-powered vehicles.
One of the first products to benefit will be the next-gen 7-Series.
From what we can tell this vehicle doesn't seem to look all that different from the current-gen product. We're hoping BMW gets a bit more edgy with its design once the camouflage — and hopefully cladding — comes off.
