In the luxury vehicle segment, innovation takes many shapes. Whether it’s about redefining speed, implementing avant-garde technology, or improving aesthetics, carmakers are consistently striving to push the boundaries. Yet, with the unveiling of its newest generation of protection vehicles, BMW has truly outdone itself. The brand’s iconic 7 Series now encompasses an intricate layer of safety, presenting to the world the BMW i7 Protection and BMW 7 Series Protection models. These luxurious titans not only promise unparalleled safety but also manage to captivate with their aesthetics, sustainability, and dynamism.
The safety architecture of these cars has been meticulously developed in tandem with the latest BMW 7 Series, centering around the pioneering BMW Protection Core. This unique feature comprises a self-supporting body structure crafted from armor steel. And as you’d expect from the luxury automaker, every safety facet, from the roof to the underbody, has been reinforced, promising security against everything from bullets to explosive charges. Additionally, an innovative feature is the self-sealing fuel tank, an invention that has the capability of self-repair in the event of a bullet hit, ensuring no fuel leakage.
Leading the charge (both literally and figuratively) is the BMW i7 Protection, a hallmark of BMW’s commitment to a greener future. It stands as the world’s first-ever protection sedan boasting an all-electric drive system. Powered by dual robust electric motors, this majestic sedan doesn’t compromise an inch on safety, meeting the stringent requirements of class VR9 protection. By introducing the i7 Protection, BMW doesn’t just bring an electric vehicle to the market; it brings forward a car that combines class-leading security, dynamic drive quality, and staunch eco-friendliness.
BMW’s latest protection vehicles don’t just shield; they dazzle. From exterior design options almost identical to the regular 7 Series to interiors that ooze opulence, these cars are a testament to BMW’s commitment to offering customers the best of both worlds. Whether it’s the multifunction seats upholstered in BMW Individual Merino leather, heated and ventilated seating arrangements for all occupants, or the option for a massage function in all seats, the interiors have been crafted keeping utmost luxury in mind.
Understanding that the best protection is a blend of technology and awareness, BMW offers specialized Protection driver training courses, enhancing the prowess of the driver in challenging situations. These programs, running for over three decades, encompass a vast array of activities ranging from theoretical sessions to practical vehicle control exercises and even tactical response training, helmed by some of the most proficient experts in the field.
The unveiling of the BMW i7 Protection and BMW 7 Series Protection heralds a new era in luxury automotive. It represents a harmonious blend of security, luxury, performance, and sustainability. As they make their grand debut at the IAA Mobility 2023, these vehicles are emblematic of BMW’s vision for the future: a world where luxury and security go hand in hand with responsibility and sustainability.
