Ajay Devgn is one of those names in Bollywood who needs no introduction. The iconic actor has been in the industry for a long time and over the years has delivered a ton of hits. While the actor is known for his acting skills, recently he has been making headlines for a completely new reason. It has now been noted that the actor is an avid automotive enthusiast, and his taste in automobiles is impeccable. He has been taking deliveries of some of the most luxurious cars in the country, and most recently, he took delivery of his first all-electric car. And true to his style, Ajay Devgn has taken delivery of the all-new BMW i7, which is the brand’s flagship EV sedan.
The video of Ajay Devgn’s newest addition has been shared on YouTube by CS12 Vlogs on their channel. In the video, the car can be seen crossing the traffic signal twice. It is worth noting that Ajay Devgn has opted for the classy shade of Twilight Purple Pearl Metallic, which is a bespoke color from BMW’s customization department – the BMW Individual.
The BMW i7 is the company’s all-electric luxury flagship sedan and exemplifies its dedication to sustainable transportation. It is the most expensive model in the i-series array of electric cars. The i7 has a sleek, futuristic look with a sizable grille that sits low to the ground and a sloping roofline. It closely resembles the ICE 7 Series of the most recent generation in appearance. To set it apart, it features blue highlights, new alloy wheels, and the “i” insignia.
The i7’s interior is also identical to that of the 7 Series’ most recent generation flagship car. Both the infotainment system and the instrument cluster have curved screens, with the latter measuring 12.3 inches and the former measuring 14.9 inches. The i7 is equipped with a full-width light band and runs on the most recent version of BMW’s iDrive 8 operating system. Additionally, a 31.3-inch, 8K “cinema” screen for video streaming through Amazon Fire TV is mounted on the i7’s roof and can be folded down. The back doors include a 5.5-inch touchscreen that controls the infotainment system, temperature control, and seats.
To power the brand-new BMW i7, two electric motors, one on each axle, are used in the i7 xDrive 60 variant. They produce 544 horsepower and 745 Nm of torque. The i7 is equipped with a 101.7kWh lithium-ion battery, providing a range of 591 to 625km in the WLTP cycle. The i7 boasts a top speed of 239 kph and accelerates from 0 to 100 kph in under 4.7 seconds, according to BMW’s claims.
The electric 7 series can be charged using up to 195kW of DC power or up to 11kW of AC power. The i7’s batteries are estimated to take approximately 34 minutes to charge from 10% to 80% using the latter method. One notable feature of the i7 is its ability to provide both rear-wheel and all-wheel drive configurations, achieved through the use of one or two electric motors, depending on the model.
The BMW i7 is priced at Rs 1.95 crore (ex-showroom) and competes with the Mercedes-Benz EQS 580, which costs Rs 1.55 crore (ex-showroom). It also competes with the Porsche Taycan, which has a price range of Rs 1.53 crore to Rs 2.34 crore (ex-showroom). Additionally, the i7 competes with the Audi e-tron GT, priced at Rs 1.70 crore (ex-showroom).
Apart from the BMW i7, Ajay Devgn recently took delivery of a brand new Mercedes S 450 4MATIC, the flagship sedan from the German carmaker. This luxury sedan is powered by a 3.0-litre inline-six engine. The S 450 4MATIC claims 365 PS of maximum power and 500 Nm of maximum torque. As indicated by the 4MATIC suffix, this version of the S-Class comes equipped with Mercedes-Benz’s all-wheel drive system. The engine is mated to a 9G-Tronic 9-speed automatic gearbox and is assisted by an EQ boost mild-hybrid system for improved fuel efficiency.
In addition to the top-of-the-line Mercedes-Benz offerings, Ajay Devgn also owns several other desirable cars in his collection, including the mighty Rolls-Royce Cullinan, Mercedes Maybach GLS600, the newest generation of the BMW 7-Series, BMW X7, Range Rover Vogue, Audi Q7, Mini Cooper, and Audi A5 Sportback.
