BMW has dropped a new video teaser for the sixth generation (codename: BMW G11) 2016 7 Series and announced that it will be unveiled on the 10th of June.
The new video teases the all-new 7er’s headlamps, chrome embellishments on the fender, wheels, kidney grille, Laserlight technology used in the headlights, and interior. The only key element that the video fully reveals is the tail lamps. A new chrome strip that extends throughout the boot-lid is integrated into the tail lamps. The model seen in the video is the 750 Li – ‘Li’ indicating the long-wheelbase variant.
BMW had released a teaser video of its all-new luxury saloon in April, and revealed some of its key features with that. The model will be the world’s first fully self-parking car, capable of manoeuvring itself in or out of parking spaces/garages without needing the driver at the wheel. The driver can simply command the car to pull itself out of the garage or parking and reach him/her using a remote control which the company calls the ‘BMW Display Key’.
Other highlights include gesture control, iDrive infotainment system with touch screen display, updated voice command system and a weight reduction of up to 130 kg.
The configurator of the currently sold fifth generation 7 Series has been pulled out from several European BMW websites including that of Germany, Netherlands, UK and France. In fact, the product line-up of none of these websites show the fifth-gen 7 Series in it.
