After previewing it to potential customers last year, BMW Malaysia has finally unveiled the latest additions to the BMW 7 Series line-up – the New BMW 750e xDrive M Sport and BMW 750e xDrive Pure Excellence.
The New BMW 750e xDrive M Sport and the New BMW 750e xDrive Pure Excellence now feature a new and somewhat radical design approach, courtesy of the new split headlight design, enhanced with the BMW Iconic Glow crystal headlights, as well as the illuminated BMW Iconic Glow kidney grille.
The new variants will also arrive with the latest generation BMW eDrive technology for PHEV models, complemented by the BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive system for maximum power.
The New BMW 750e xDrive M Sport and the New BMW 750e xDrive Pure Excellence share predominantly similar characteristics in terms of power and performance, leaving room for distinctly unique individualisation in the exterior and interior make-up of each variant.
Both the new variants feature daytime running lights enhanced with the BMW Iconic Glow crystal headlights – that when illuminated, presents a multi-faceted ambient light reflection and a shimmering display from the embedded Swarovski crystals.
Contour lighting lends the BMW Iconic Glow kidney grille a stunning look with LED elements that visually impresses in both night and day. The LED lighting units are also part of the Great Entrance Moments, a special light show that welcomes passengers with a carpet of light and activated interior lighting.
The tall and upright front section also features a slightly lowered number plate position, along with increased dimensions from all angles – similar to the BMW i7.
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.
The extended wheelbase also provides more interior space and comfort for its passengers. The exclusive horizontal M high-gloss Shadowline and M side sills in high-gloss Black enhance the appearance of the M Sport variant, along with M front and rear aprons.

At the rear, the All-New BMW 7 Series boasts L-shaped BMW taillights 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.
Inside, welcoming the driver in the 7 Series is a new flat-bottomed two-spoke steering wheel, while unique to the M Sport variant is a flat-bottomed three-spoke steering wheel wrapped in the exclusive M Leather.
The cockpit is outfitted with the BMW Curved Display, featuring the 12.3-inch Infotainment Display and 14.9-inch Control Display, accompanied by a new backlit BMW Interaction Bar.
The interior design language of the All-New BMW 7 Series is accentuated by the M signature high gloss fine-wood trim in fineline black with metal effect highlights in the M Sport variant, while the Pure Excellence variant arrives with a fine-wood trim oak mirror finish with grey metallic highlights.
The CraftedClarity crystal glass trim can be seen 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’ which makes for an ambience that maximises personal well-being.
The My Mode ‘Relax’ combines calm images in the central display, a massage function, a gentle soundscape and an option to black out the window areas. The My Mode ‘Expressive’, on the other hand, accentuates the driving experience with lively colours complementing the BMW IconicSounds Electric.
The Sky Lounge panoramic glass roof in the All-New BMW 7 Series grants a clear view of the sky through a laminated glass structure that is UV-protected. Offering a more captivating ambience are exclusive light graphics created by side-integrated LED modules that illuminate a silk-screened pattern.
Rear seat passengers in the New BMW 750e xDrive M Sport will also be able to enjoy the Executive Lounge Seating feature that is exclusive to this variant, where the seat and backrest angle can be adjusted individually, along with the adjustable lumbar support and memory function.
Unique also to the New BMW 750e xDrive M Sport is the BMW Theatre Screen – a 31.3-inch panoramic screen for rear seat passengers that features 8K resolution paired with an integrated high-end surround sound system, bringing an unrivalled viewing experience for passengers.
With a HDMI interface, the BMW Theatre Screen can also be connected to external devices such as a smartphone or HDMI TV sticks.
Additionally, users can 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 lighting and seating functions.
Under the hood, the All-New BMW 7 Series is powered by an in-line six-cylinder plug-in hybrid engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology, paired with an electric motor featuring a battery capacity of 22.1 kWh, integrated into the 8-Speed Steptronic transmission.
Power generated by both drive units are channeled to the road via the BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive system. The All-New BMW 7 Series records a top speed of 250 km/h, delivering 489hp and 700Nm of torque, and is capable of a century sprint in just 4.8 seconds.
