BMW India roll out its first locally assembled 7 Series in India

BMW India has rolled out its first locally assembled 7 Series from the Chennai facility. The 730Ld is the only variant which is being assembled in India while rest of the variants of the facelifted model – the 740Li, 750Li and the 760Li are imported as completely built units (CBU).

The new 7 Series was launched in India on April 25. Changes to the 2013 model on the outside include new LED headlamps with corona rings, a slightly modified grille, revised front bumpers, indicators, turn indicators on the ORVMs and chrome inserts in both the front and back. Inside, there are new leather seats in the front, a Bang & Olufsen audio system as well as an optional rear seat entertainment package. BMW has now also fitted a fully digital instrument cluster. The new 7 Series has also been fitted with the BMWs Ecopro technology that includes automatic start stop and brake energy regeneration.

With CKD operations the 730Ld is priced at Rs 93.90 lakh to compete with the Jaguar XJ L, Mercedes-Benz S-Class and the Audi A8L. BMW also assembles the 3 Series, 5 Series, X1 and the X3 at their Chennai plant with recent addition of the Mini Cooper D Country man.
