Aston Martin Vantage, Aston Martin DB11 and DBS: Aston’s a few coupés keep on being highly competitive, but there is no escaping the restrictions of their infotainment units, dependent on Mercedes tech from two generations ago, so that will be the headline adjust. But we’re also expecting a styling refresh and an interior overhaul.
BMW i7: There’s no doubting the specialized prowess or the luxury credentials of BMW’s new iX electric powered SUV, but there are lots of individuals who only just cannot tummy its outlandish styling. Stage forward, then, the BMW i7. A familiar, minimal-slung acquire on the traditional luxury saloon, with (as you will have inferred from the lowercase letter in its identify) an all-electrical powertrain.
To be marketed together with internal-combustion variations of the future-era 7 Series, the fifth addition to Munich’s EV family members has its targets locked on the Mercedes-Benz EQS, which hitherto has experienced no accurate immediate rivals. As with the electric variations of the X3 and 4 Series Gran Coupé, the i7 will be differentiated visually from the normal 7 Series by a blanked-off front grille (the form of which has nevertheless to be confirmed but is sure to be a scorching matter of discussion), bespoke wheel designs and smatterings of EV-distinct trim.
Otherwise, although, BMW will no doubt look for to make the EV swap as interesting and common as it can to faithful 7 Sequence buyers. They are customers with fast paced and lavish life, no doubt, who want to get where they are heading immediately, quietly and in convenience. And the i7 will tick all of individuals containers, with all over 600bhp in its most powerful, twin-motor form, almost 400 miles of array from a 105.2kWh battery and an advanced infotainment technique lifted from the iX.
