BMW invested around $312 million to upgrade the plant for the production of the new i7 and 7-Series. BMW used production shutdowns at the plant to convert the production lines previously responsible for the older generation 7 Series to manufacture its successor. BMW claims that for the first time, the production of the 7-Series will involve automated manoeuvres.

Speaking about the production commencement, Milan Nedeljkovic, BMW AG Board member for production, said that the new BMW 7-Series is the first luxury sedan in the world to offer customers a choice between three types of drive. "Whether fully electric, combustion-powered or, soon, plug-in hybrid, we have the flexible production structures and outstanding integration skills we need to manufacture such a diverse range of drives efficiently," he added.

It is not sure when BMW will bring this model to India. However, expect the new 7-Series to come to the Indian market sometime next year. The new 7-Series comes with a host of design updates, new features and an updated powertrain.
