Dubai: Pre-orders have started for BMW’s flagship new 7 Series and of the i7 in the UAE. The German luxury carmaker will want to score wins and sales with the i7, which has a claimed range of up to 625 kilometres.

With the latest all-electric model, there is also a direct UAE connection. The model includes the use of UAE-made aluminium produced using solar electricity by EGA (Emirates Global Aluminium), and a move expected to reduce BMW Group’s carbon dioxide emissions by approximately 2.5 million tonnes over a 10-year period.

“It is an exciting time for BMW’s new chapter of luxury, and we at AGMC are delighted to be playing a key role in ushering in this new era,” said Ayhan Olcer, CEO at AGMC.

“The BMW 7 Series is a model which holds deep heritage - both here in UAE and across the world. Along with introducing the fully-electric BMW i7, the new 7 will surely continue leading the path in its segment with sustainability and technology openness in mind.”
