BMW Malaysia has made available a couple of additions to its ultra-luxurious 7 Series range, with the new BMW 750e xDrive M Sport and BMW 750e xDrive Pure Excellence variants.
The BMW 750e xDrive M Sport and 750e xDrive Pure Excellence essentially share very similar characteristics in terms of power and performance, but with distinct differences in the exterior and interior. Both new variants feature daytime running lights enhanced with the BMW Iconic Glow crystal headlights. When illuminated, it gives off a multi-faceted ambient light reflection and a shimmering display from the
embedded Swarovski crystals. Contour lighting also lends the BMW Iconic Glow kidney grille a stunning
look with LED elements in both night and day.
At the rear, the 7 Series boasts signature L-shaped BMW taillights with a purist design, while the horizontal lines emphasise the vehicle’s width. A washer nozzle for the reverse camera has also been integrated into the BMW logo for a more seamless look. Owners will also get to enjoy up to 575 litres of boot space.
The exclusive horizontal M high-gloss Shadowline and M side sills in high-gloss Black help enhance the appearance of the M Sport variant, along with M front and rear aprons. Also exclusive to the 750e xDrive M Sport are Style 907 bicolour 20″ M aerodynamic wheels. For the 750e xDrive Pure Excellence, it gets Style 903 19″ sport double spoke alloy wheels.
Furthermore, the LED lighting units are also part of the Great Entrance Moments which is a special light show that welcomes passengers with a carpet of light and activated interior lighting. The extended wheelbase of the 750e also provides more interior space and comfort for its passengers. Owners will also be able to enjoy automatic doors that enable occupants to open and close all doors automatically either via the vehicle key, the Control Display, by voice command or directly via the door itself.
There is a new flat-bottomed 2-spoke steering wheel in the cockpit, though the M Sport variant gets a flat-bottomed 3-spoke unit wrapped in the exclusive M Leather. The cockpit is complemented by the BMW Curved Display, featuring a 12.3″ Infotainment Display and a 14.9″ Control Display, accompanied by a new backlit BMW Interaction Bar.
The interior of the M Sport Variant is further accentuated by the M signature high gloss fine-wood trim in fineline black with metal effect highlights, while the Pure Excellence variant has fine-wood trim oak mirror finish with grey metallic highlights. Additionally, the exclusive CraftedClarity crystal glass trim is in the switch for fore-and-aft seat adjustment in the door trim panels, the BMW Controller, the volume control and the Start/Stop button, as well as the gear selector switch.
Other standard elements include the Bowers & Wilkins Surround Sound System, along with new My Modes options consisting of ‘Relax’ and ‘Expressive’. The My Mode ‘Relax’ setting combines calm images in the central display, a massage function, a gentle soundscape and an option to black out the window areas. While the ‘Expressive’ mode enhances the driving experience with lively colours complementing the BMW IconicSounds Electric.
The Sky Lounge is a panoramic glass roof which provides a clear view of the sky through a laminated glass structure that has UV protection. To provide a more captivating ambience, exclusive light graphics created by side-integrated LED modules illuminate a silk-screened pattern. Rear seat passengers in the M Sport variant will also be able to enjoy the exclusive Executive Lounge Seating feature. The seat and backrest angle can be adjusted individually along with the lumbar support and memory function.
Unique also to the M Sport is the BMW Theatre Screen which is a 31.3″ panoramic screen for rear seat passengers to enjoy videos in 8K resolution and integrated high-end surround sound system. With an HDMI interface, the BMW Theatre Screen can also be connected to external devices such as a smartphone or HDMI TV sticks. You can also control the system via the BMW Touch Command, a sophisticated touchscreen control panel available in the rear doors that provide access to all functions of the infotainment system, as well as to lighting and seating functions.
The BMW 750e glides with the help of an in-line 6-cylinder plug-in hybrid engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology and an 8-speed Steptronic transmission. The electric motor is fed by a 22.1 kWh battery and power is channeled via the xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive system. The combined power output of 489 hp (360 kW) and 700 Nm enables the 7 Series to complete the century sprint in 4.8 seconds. Top speed is limited to 250 km/h.
Further, the 750e xDrive M Sport gets the Driving Assistant Plus, while the Pure Excellence variant gets Driving Assistant Professional. But standard features for both variants include Parking Assistant Plus, BMW Live Cockpit Professional with Head-up Display as well as 4-zone automatic air conditioning.
