BMW 7 Series will receive more powerful and fuel-efficient diesel enginesJune 18, 2020
According to a published press release, the BMW 7 Series executive sedan will receive 3.0-liter diesel engines that are equipped with a 48-volt electrical system with an integrated starter-generator.
BMW is already working on the next generation of the 7 Series sedan, but this does not mean that the current model will no longer receive any changes until the end of its life cycle. The Bavarian flagship sedan receives new six-cylinder diesel engines for the European market – it is reported that these engines have become more environmentally friendly and efficient in terms of fuel consumption.
This was made possible thanks to the use of a 48-volt electrical system with an integrated starter-generator, which can add 11 horsepower to the main engine.
BMW promises that such a system will help the new 3.0-liter “diesels” provide better fuel consumption – from 0.4 to 0.6 liters per 100 kilometers.
Starting with the 730d / 730d xDrive version (and their long wheelbase versions), these models receive an updated in-line diesel engine with an additional 21 hp. for a total power of 286 hp, and the torque rises by 30 Nm to a mark of 650 Nm. Thanks to the added dynamics, both versions of the sedan will be able to accelerate to the first “hundred” in 5.9 and 5.6 seconds, respectively.
A more powerful 3.0-liter engine is located under the hood of the 740d xDrive – power has increased to 340 hp, which is 20 hp. more than the previous version of the same engine. The maximum moment value is 700 Nm. To accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h, such a sedan will spend only 5.0 seconds.
Both engines are equipped with a new exhaust filter system with an optimized diesel particulate filter, which helps the engines comply with European Euro 6d emission standards.
