BMW 7 Series 740d M Sport launched at Rs 1.81 crore

The 7 Series is also available with a 3.0-litre petrol engine that produces 376 BHP and 520 Nm.

BMW has launched a diesel variant of the 7 Series in India. The 740d M Sport is priced at Rs 1.81 crore (ex-showroom) and will be produced locally at BMWโ€™s Chennai plant.

BMW introduced the seventh-generation 7 Series in India back in January this year. Initially, the flagship sedan was only available with a petrol engine. Now though, customers get a diesel option as well, in the form of the 740d M Sport.

The BMW 740d M Sport is powered by a 3.0-litre 6-cylinder diesel engine that puts out 282 BHP @ 4,000 rpm and 650 Nm @ 1,500-2,500 rpm. The engine is paired with a 48V mild-hybrid system that adds another 17 BHP and 200 Nm and an 8-speed automatic transmission.

Like most modern BMWs, the new 7 Series also has a polarizing design featuring a large kidney grille and split headlamps up front. Inside, the car gets a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a 14.9-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Like the i7, the diesel 7 Series also comes with a 31.3-inch 8K monitor at the back and 5.5-inch touchscreens positioned on the rear door handles.
