German carmaker BMW has imported a variant of its 7 Series luxury sedan which will help it sell in the Delhi NCR region.
The 725Ld imported into India for testing purposes and is powered by a 1,995cc diesel engine which will help BMW circumvent the diesel ban in effect in the capital.
The BMW 7 series made its debut in India at the 2016 Auto Expo in Delhi and there are currently 4 variants of the Mercedes S-Class rival on sale in the country.
The BMW 730Ld Design Pure Excellence and 730Ld M Sport are powered by a 3-litre, straight-six turbocharged engine producing 265hp and 620Nm of torque.
The petrol variants of the 7 Series, the 750Li Design Pure Excellence and the 750Li M Sport, are both powered by a 4.4-litre twin turbo V8 that produces 450hp and 650 Nm of torque.
The performance figures of the new 725Ld are not yet known but we do expect it to have oodles of power and torque to help it lug the 7 Series around.
We should get to know more about the new 7 Series variant when it does finally launch in India.
