BMW 7 Series G70 prepared to meet the strictest regulations

When BMW unveiled its redesigned flagship, the all-electric i7 got the most attention. The conventionally powered 7 Series will be part of the G70’s premiere. Hence, the quiet luxury car will not be alone on that 20 April. The German luxury brand has already reported that it will continue to rely on combustion engines in the years to come.

In reality, the upcoming 7 Series will introduce a new family of petrol and diesel engines. BMW gave no details this week, although CEO Oliver Zipse said they would be “very efficient”. So much so that they will meet the stricter Euro 7 rules, the last before entering the EV phase.

The representative went on to say that BMW had already paid the cost of developing internal combustion engines to a considerable extent. Almost all manufacturers have expressed concern about the increased manufacturing and technical costs for Euro 7 compliant engines. BMW has already solved this problem, as they want to offer customers what they want.

According to Oliver Zipse, the new era of combustion engines is already ready to meet the required standards of 2030. The 7 Series G70 will equip combustion engines throughout their life cycle. The models with pure combustion engines will be available together with at least one plug-in hybrid model and the i7 EV.

BMW will not be among the many European carmakers to abandon internal combustion engines. Neither by the end of the decade nor even sooner. Yes, the brand will phase out the V12-powered M760i as a Final Edition. However, there will be a choice of six- and eight-cylinder engines.

The 7 Series G70, says the 58-year-old CEO, is an “engineering marvel at its best”, with Level 3 for highly autonomous driving. Before the end of the year, this capability will be demonstrated. The group’s top executive announced that the luxury sedan would be the first vehicle to utilise the most advanced driver assistance features fully. Oliver Zipse also explained that the support of artist Hans Zimmer became part of developing the sound system.
