New BMW 7 Series technology advancement details (Photos & Video)
With the buzz around new BMW 7 Series growing, the Munich based luxury car maker has revealed some exciting new details about their flagship sedan. (The car is not revealed, but you can always check the leaked uncamouflaged spy shots from before)
The first point BMW highlights about the new 7 Series, is the EfficientLightweight construction. New BMW 7 Series is lighter by up to 130 kgs, claims BMW. This is due to the extensive usage of carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP). That’s the same material which forms major part of BMW i8. BMW confirms that there has been a technology transfer from i8 to 7 Series. The usage of CFRP has given the new 7 Series “increased torsional rigidity and strength”.
The next point BMW speaks about the technology advancement of 7 Series is its Touch Display and Gesture Control. Yes, the new 7 Series will not only offer their state of the art monitor touchscreen, but it will also be equipped with Gesture Control, a first in the segment. The system now features a 3D sensor, which tracks your hand movements and accordingly takes input. This feature will allow the driver to accept or reject calls, change songs, and increase / decrease volume.
Another new feature which will be seen on board the new BMW 7 Series is the remote control parking. Owners will now be able to park their car, without driving it. The remote control parking option of new 7 Series works with the help of newly developed BMW Display Key. With this key, the driver will be able to exit or enter parking space automatically.
Other technological advancements include new generation engines, including the same six cylinder inline petrol twin turbo engine which powers the M3 and M4; improved dynamics and road control, advanced driver safety features with BMW ConnectedDrive.
