BMW Malaysia introduces the New BMW 740Le xDrive M Sport

BMW Malaysia today introduced the New BMW 740Le xDrive M Sport – adding to BMW’s prestigious portfolio of luxury sedans that perfectly exemplify electrifying opulence.

Hans de Visser, Managing Director of BMW Group Malaysia said, “Our leading role in the world of premium luxury vehicles is not only underlined by the success we achieved last year. In the first quarter of 2021 alone, we have successfully delivered over 2,500 units of BMW, MINI and BMW Motorrad vehicles, resulting in over 25% of growth compared to the same period last year. Our role as the market leader for premium electrified vehicles is also underscored by a delivery of over 500 units of electrified BMW and MINI vehicles, recording a triple-digit growth of over 140%.”

“With over 20,000 units of our electrified vehicles on the road since we pioneered Malaysia’s shift to electromobility in 2015, we look forward to deliver on our promise to shape the mobility of the future in Malaysia once again, in the form of the new, locally assembled BMW 740Le xDrive M Sport – BMW Malaysia’s latest interpretation of Progressive Luxury,” de Visser added.

The New BMW 740 Le xDrive M Sport is the latest addition to BMW Malaysia’s extensive portfolio of locally assembled premium vehicles. The new luxury sedan is a testament to BMW Group Malaysia’s efforts in furthering investment within the local automotive industry – in line with the year’s direction towards economic recovery.

Within the new luxury sedan, the ‘Fineline’ Fine Wood Trim in Black with High Gloss Metal Effect offers an elegant interior, complete with the BMW Individual Alcantara Anthracite headliner. In the cockpit, drivers are greeted with an M-Sport steering wheel as they sit back on electrically adjustable Comfort seats with memory function in the front.

BMW Malaysia introduces the Locally Assembled All-New BMW X7 xDrive40i Pure Excellence

BMW Malaysia today introduced the locally assembled variant of the All-New BMW X7 xDrive40i Pure Excellence – reaffirming their investments in the local automotive landscape through one of the brand’s many progressive pillars.

“We are proud to be redefining the Story of Progressive Luxury with a new addition to our portfolio of locally-assembled vehicles in Malaysia. The new model is also a testament to our commitment in the local market, as we further innovate our fleet of premium Sports Activity Vehicles to complement the most luxurious of lifestyles in Malaysia,” said Hans de Visser, Managing Director of BMW Group Malaysia.

He added, “After the extensive introduction of many high-profile locally assembled vehicles in the past year – including the BMW 218i Gran Coupé, the BMW 330e M Sport, and the BMW M340i xDrive – this move to localise the assembly of one of our largest models in the BMW X range further demonstrates our longstanding confidence in Malaysia’s potential as a regional hub for the luxury automobile segment.”

The All-New BMW X7 xDrive40i Pure Excellence is an exemplification of luxury within the BMW brand, and is a sophisticated statement on its own. The variant’s imposing appearance and stature, designed with comfort and luxury at its heart, belies the versatility and agility that are characteristic of a BMW X model. With its outstanding powertrain and chassis technology, the All-New BMW X7 xDrive40i Pure Excellence offers an unparalleled driving and interior experience.

The paradigm of luxury and authority.

The All-New BMW X7 xDrive40i Pure Excellence retains its iconic bold and immaculate design. The massive front with the imposing kidney grille lends an exceptional road presence to the vehicle, along with the slender BMW Laserlight headlights that can illuminate up to 600 metres ahead. Available as standard also are the LED fog lights and high-beam assistant.

From the side, the near-vertical shoulder line visually elongates the All-New BMW X7 xDrive40i Pure Excellence from the front to rear – with large windows and a long, dynamically flowing roofline that hints at a spacious interior. Equally striking are the 21-inch light alloy wheels in Y-spoke style 753 Bicolour with run-flat tyres, available as standard. The variant also features a fully-electric tailgate in the rear with the Comfort Access feature, and two large, rectangular tailpipes – one on each side, conveying its immense power.

Formidable engines, hallmark BMW dynamics.

The All-New BMW X7 xDrive40i Pure Excellence also retains the powerful six-cylinder in-line petrol engine capable of a maximum power of 250kW/ 340hp, and a peak torque of 450Nm. This results in a century sprint completed in 6.1 seconds. All of these are achieved with a combined fuel consumption of 9.5l/100km and a combined carbon emission of 218g/km.

Power is channelled to all four wheels via an eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission. The xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive system of the luxury SAV maximises traction, agility and handling stability which links up with the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) feature. Included in the sophisticated chassis design of the variant is a two-axle air suspension. With the DSC system, the vehicle load registered by the air suspension sensors can also be factored into braking modulation.

Like the imported variant, the locally assembled variant of the All-New BMW X7 xDrive40i Pure Excellence is offered with the innovative Executive Drive Pro with active roll stabilisation.

Luxurious interior design with integrated technology.

The interior of the All-New BMW X7 xDrive40i Pure Excellence also features the opulent “Crafted Clarity” handmade diamond-cut trim element and a range of standard equipment including a sport leather steering wheel and electrically adjustable comfort seats.

The BMW Live Cockpit Professional with BMW Operating System 7.0 combines the fully digital, user-configurable 12.3-inch instrument cluster with an equally large central Control Display with touchscreen functionality. The BMW Head-Up Display is also located within field of vision. The variant is also fitted with the voice-controlled BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant and BMW Gesture Control.

Other highlights include the Welcome Light Carpet feature, five-zone air conditioning, a Harman Kardon Surround Sound System with 16 loudspeakers and electric roller blinds for side windows. The Rear Entertainment Professional system is also available within the locally assembled variant, while the sheer spaciousness is further enhanced by the large Panorama Roof Sky Lounge.

The All-New BMW X7 xDrive40i Pure Excellence also features soft-close function for doors. Space is offered to the luxury SAV via a versatile luggage compartment that can be maximised up to 2,120 litres with the backrests folded down.

Advanced connectivity meets sporting luxury.

The All-New BMW X7 xDrive40i Pure Excellence is equipped with the Reversing Assistant to assist in safely manoeuvring out of a tight parking space. The Driving Assistant has been outfitted with a comprehensive range of functions, tailored to allow full ease of mind when on the drive. They include Lane Departure Warning, Lane Change Warning and Front Collision Warning with brake intervention.

As a welcome addition, the All-New BMW X7 xDrive40i Pure Excellence also comes with Active Cruise Control with Stop & Go function and Integral Active Steering, further enhancing the safety and comfort of the drive. Other innovative features include the BMW Digital Key, wireless charging for mobile phones, as well as smartphone integration that are available as standard equipment for the locally assembled variant.

The All-New BMW X7 xDrive40i Pure Excellence is offered in five exterior finishes to complement its sophisticated stature, with selected interior colour combinations. The exterior colours of Black Sapphire and Sophisto Grey come in Cognac Leather Vernasca upholstery with Black design perforations, while Phytonic Blue and Manhattan Metallic exteriors come complete with an all-Black design-perforated Leather Vernasca interior. Lastly, Leather Vernasca in Coffee with Black design perforations comes exclusively with the Mineral White model.

The All-New BMW X7 xDrive40i Pure Excellence will be available at all authorised BMW dealerships nationwide starting 8th May 2021. Due to a scheduled website maintenance, customers may only book the new luxury SAV for RM 5,000 via the BMW Shop Online platform at shop.bmw.com.my from 11th May 2021 onwards.

Dynamic financial programme.

With the Balloon Financing Plan from BMW Group Financial Services Malaysia, the All-New BMW X7 xDrive40i Pure Excellence can be owned with a monthly instalment plan starting from RM 7,468.00 (based on estimates of an 80% loan on a five-year tenure).
