There were photos of the next generation BMW 7 Series SedanJanuary 4, 2020
Now, testing a completely new generation of a representative sedan from Bavaria is at the very early stage of testing – the seen prototype uses the body of the current version of the model. The car interior is specially covered with a fabric that hides updates from prying eyes.
Now, work is underway to test the prototype of the next generation of the BMW 7 Series executive sedan. You may be confused that the photograph shows the current 7 Series – the fact is that this is an early stage of testing and now the brand’s engineers use the body of the current version of the model. But if you look closely, you will see some camouflaged body elements.
Masking on the outside hides parts of the headlights and taillights, so we cannot draw any conclusions about the new design of these elements.
The camouflage in the front of the sedan makes us think that BMW may have some kind of new lighting technology that gives a better range, for example, perhaps updating the current Laserlight technology. The back of the prototype camouflage is slightly smaller.
Inside, BMW engineers laid fabric on top of the center console, which probably hides the updated display of the infotainment system. The rest of the cabin at the moment looks almost unchanged, with the exception of equipment for monitoring the car.
Although not visible in these photographs, there are some early details about the options available for engines for the next generation of the 7th series. Spy shots already indicate that BMW is working on an all-electric version of the large sedan. The company seems adamant about phasing out its V12 engine. Recent rumors also suggest that the four-cylinder diesel in-line engine will soon be removed from the company’s price list.
BMW has reportedly completed production of the current 7 Series in mid-2022. This is likely to mean that the new version of the model will debut at the beginning of this year and will go on sale by the 2023 model year.
Not so long ago, our publication wrote that a rare station wagon BMW E34 M5 Touring 1994 release was put up for sale. The 1994 E34 M5 Touring is available on the Enthusiast Auto Group website.
