With all the comforts and amenities of a non-hydrogen BMW 7 Series, the BMW Hydrogen 7 is powered by a 260 mph twelve-cylinder engine that accelerates from 0-62.1 mph in 9.5 seconds. Top speed is limited electronically to 143 mph. The BMW Hydrogen 7 also features a dual-mode power unit-controlled at the touch of a button-that can switch quickly and conveniently from hydrogen to conventional premium gasoline. Running in hydrogen mode, the BMW Hydrogen 7 essentially emits nothing but water vapor.
The car’s dual-mode drive provides a hydrogen mode cruising range of more than 125 miles, with another 300 miles in the gasoline mode. With this overall cruising range of more than 400 miles, the driver of a BMW Hydrogen 7 is able to use the vehicle without problem even when the nearest hydrogen filling station is far away. This technology is a viable solution until the hydrogen infrastructure is fully developed.
The available BMW Individual exterior paints are developed using special Xirallic paints and a 5-coat process that picks up fine pigments in the coating to create constantly changing nuances in the finish, giving greater color intensity and dramatic two-tonal effects.
The interior is fitted with the highest quality Merino full-leather upholstery, Alcantara headliner and unique interior trim-including Piano varnish wood trim. Illuminated BMW Individual doorsills, distinctive 20” BMW Individual wheels and the convenient storage net in the front passenger foot well provide the additional premium touches to complement the BMW Individual 7 Series.
