Bringing Luxury to the 7 Series: The BMW 2022 7 Series

BMW has long set the standard high with its high-end, luxury motors. As its most famous model enters its seventh generation, BMW is reimagining the luxury car landscape with the BMW 2022 7 Series. The new 7 Series incorporates defining technology from earlier models and new luxury elements under the current 7 Series.

This vehicle is the newest contender in the luxury car market. Available in diesel and petrol equivalents, the BMW 2022 7 Series will focus on combining power and cutting-edge design to create a generation-defining car. And if growing concerns about the environment are high on your agenda, BMW is actively addressing this by releasing the updated all-electric BMW i7.

Want to know more about the 2022 7 Series? We’re here to take a closer look at this model and help you decide if it’s the right car for you.

Meet the BMW Luxury 7 Series 2022

As a brand, BMW has continuously distinguished itself from the rest of the market, boasting luxury and high performance across every model it has produced. BMW has released its cars in every corner of the globe, and in 2020, it enjoyed its highest-ever annual sales figure, with 144,218 BMWs sold in the UK.

This car is certainly no exception. Designed with the distinctive features consumers have come to expect from one of the biggest car manufacturers in the world, it combines the modular Cluster Architecture (CLAR - found under the current 7 Series), as well as the staple rear-wheel drive.

Moving away from its older five series design, BMW introduces a bespoke headlight design to distinguish this vehicle from its older saloons. This car also features slimmer, sleeker taillights and the ability to adapt to any climate or environment. In short, the BMW 2022 7 Series combines the beloved aspects of the earlier ranges while actively moving towards innovation - making it the ideal vehicle for any BMW lover.

Anticipated to be a worthy contender against the Mercedes EQS and Tesla Model S, the 2022 7 Series will prioritise efficiency above all else. It’s set to be the first BMW with various alternative drive technologies offered alongside it. BMW chairman, Oliver Zipse, has indicated that hybrid, petrol, and diesel models will be released. An all-electric version of the 7 Series will be available as a separate model - the BMW i7.

BMW is yet to release official details on the specification of the 2022 7 Series. However, various industry experts expect BMW to continue offering different ranges featuring four and six-cylinder engines. These engines will likely utilise 48v mild-hybrid technology to promote efficiency and maximise performance.

As emissions laws have impacted previous BMW engines, such as the flagship V12 across Europe, experts predict that a V8 engine will likely return for the 2022 7 Series models. However, for the plug-in hybrid variations of this car, a significant increase in electric range and efficiency is expected.


Perhaps more distinguishable from earlier models, the 2022 7 Series will feature large kidney grilles alongside the newly designed headlights. And if you’re looking for luxury, the 7 Series’ striking design innovation is sure to deliver. Ditching the former daytime running lights and main headlights, BMW introduces split units, the latter being located at the car's rear bumper.

BMW Driving

With a streamlined nose referencing the iX SUV, the 2022 7 Series will be available in standard and long-wheelbase layouts. Check out the Rivervale review of the iX SUV. The length of the layout will depend on the trim level of the model.

Although innovation is an important component in the majority of the 7 Series, the 2022 7 Series leans more on traditional BMW conventions towards the rear. This is demonstrated by the taller reshaped boot lid and slimmer tail-lights. In addition, higher trim models will feature a twin-exit exhaust system set into the diffuser to increase power.

Sustainability and Driving

The 2022 7 Series range is expected to start with a selection of 3.0-litre diesel and 3.0-litre turbo petrol models, as well as a 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8. A hybrid equivalent model is anticipated with an expected 40-mile electric range. Each variation of the engine type will help to improve the overall power of the model while ensuring fuel consumption is not overly excessive.

BMW Charging

Alongside the diverse range of engines, the 2022 7 Series is expected to feature plush and supreme technology, comparable to that of the iX SUV, as well as a spacious cabin to ensure that every drive is comfortable.
