BMW 7 Series electrified.

CO2- and pollutant emissions
: By 2020, the BMW Group will have reduced CO2 emissions in the European new vehicle fleet (EU-28) by at least 50% compared to the base year 1995.

How exactly is the BMW Group pursuing this target?

The production of the new BMW 7 Series Saloon started at the BMW Group’s Dingolfing plant in March 2019. More than 1.9 million BMW 7 Series have been manufactured in Dingolfing since the first ones started being produced in 1977.

It is the first time that the BMW Group is offering a plug-in hybrid with a six-cylinder engine in a vehicle. A 286-hp in-line six-cylinder engine is combined with a 113-hp electric engine in BMW 745e / 745Le (combined fuel consumption: 2.3-2.1 l/100 km* / 2.3-2.2 l/100 km*; combined power consumption: 15.6-15.1 kWh/100 km* / 15.7-15.6 kWh/100 km*; combined CO2 emissions from fuel: 52-48 g/km* / 53-50 g/km*). The vehicle therefore has an overall system performance of 394 hp. The new BMW 7 Series is the BMW Group’s first vehicle to have a 4th generation battery. Thanks to the state-of-the-art battery cell technology, the luxury saloon has a purely electric range of up to 58 kilometres*, zero local emissions and is almost silent. The battery installed in the BMW 745e is also manufactured in Dingolfing in the competence centre for electric drivetrain production just a few kilometres away.

From there, Dingolfing already supplies the international plants of the BMW Group with batteries and electric engines for the production of electrified vehicles.

The new BMW 7 Series Saloon will help us to achieve our targets for CO2 emissions in the European new vehicle fleet (EU-28) by 2020.

All details regarding vehicle performances, consumption, CO2 emissions and range are provisional values. All details regarding fuel consumption, CO2 emissions, power consumption and range are calculated in accordance with the prescribed measuring procedures VO (EU) 2007/715 in the applicable version. The details refer to a vehicle fitted with standard equipment in Germany, the ranges take account of differences in the selected wheel and tyre size and the optional special equipment and may vary during configuration. The details marked with * have already been calculated on the basis of the new WLTP test cycle and retroactively calculated as a NEDC value for the purposes of comparability. Values other than those indicated here may apply for the calculation of taxes and other vehicle-related fees, which are aimed at CO2 emissions, for other vehicles.
