New 2023 BMW 7 Series Redesign
New 2023 BMW 7 Series Redesign – BMW’s inclusion in developing a multi-energy platform will continue to pay dividends when the company introduces its next-generation 7 Series in the early 2020s.
BMW chairman Oliver Zipse confirmed the Next 7 will be offered with petrol and diesel combustion engines, plug-in hybrid options, and electric powertrains. He stopped short of providing technical details, but Autocar learned the battery-powered model would be the most powerful member of the range, and it would be in line to slot in on top of the combustion-engined variant.

The unnamed zero-emission 7 will use BMW’s fifth-generation electric technology, which will also power the i4 and iNext, and it will go up on the same platform as other versions. This means the Munich-based company will theoretically be able to build every 7 on the same assembly line regardless of what it is supported by.
Another point with a question mark hovering over it is what a panoply plug-less petrol- and diesel combustion engine would look like. By 2020, 7 buyers can choose from six, eight, and 12-cylinder options. The straight-six will almost certainly make a comeback, the V8 will likely, too, but the fate of the mighty V12 is murky at best.
2023 BMW 7 Release Date
The Electric 7 is one of 25 electric models – including more than 12 fully electric cars – BMW plans to release in 2023. It will not have a monopoly on the segment, however, as it will need to fend off competition from the Mercedes-Benz EQS due to come out in the coming years. It will be positioned as an electric alternative to the S-Class, not as an electric S-Class, and will wear a special model design inspired by the Vision EQS concept.
The current-generation 7 Series will retire in 2022, meaning its successor could enter production by the end of that year; we can’t imagine BMW will go long without a flagship. It may not arrive in American showrooms until the 2023 model year, and it is unclear whether all four types of powertrains will be offered at launch.
When BMW first facelifted the G11 7 Series, the new design was controversial, to put it mildly. Its terrible grid seems to polarize much of the fanbase. However, one aspect that looks better than the fresh-faced Series 7 is its new light design. As it turned out, BMW seemed to think it could improve its lights even further, as it was only given another face update car, which only caught testing in the wild.
In some new spy photos, we get to see the New BMW 7 Series with some tweaks to the light design, as evidenced by the camouflage on them. Although we don’t know exactly how these lights will change, we know that they will get some small changes.

There are also some very small changes to the backlights, judging by the camo on them in these photos. That would make sense because it would be silly to do headlights and not backlights. We wonder how drastic these changes can be, as camouflage is rather small on both. Apparently, BMW feels that the changes are big enough to warrant spending money, even if they seem insignificant at the moment.
We really knew this was coming for a while, thanks to our sources at BMW, but we didn’t know there was another change. As far as we know, this is just a very small additional refresh, with just a few tweaks to both sets of lights. However, we know for sure that this will be a refresher of the current model and not the next generation of cars. The Next-Generation BMW 7 series is not due until 2022-2023.
