BMW i7 Protection Revealed: The Future of Armored Electric Vehicles!
The 2023 BMW i7 Protection is a high-end armored vehicle tailored for those requiring both luxury and advanced security. Crafted in-house, its design is a near mirror-image of the regular-production 7 Series sedan, harmoniously blending opulence with enhanced safety. From the start, the Protection model was intrinsically woven into the 7 Series plan, making it a fundamental part of its design rather than a later addition.
While BMW maintains discretion about the specifics of its armored transformations, certain features are public knowledge. These include an armored steel frame, reinforced safety glass, and additional armored panels for the underbody. Moreover, the vehicle is equipped to deflect explosive attacks from above and below, all while carrying a VR9 protection rating, a testament to its ability to repel armor-piercing bullets.
Subtlety is of the essence. Hence, BMW ensures the Protection closely resembles its regular counterpart, promoting discretion. However, for those desiring added flair, options such as grille lights, door mirror cap lights, parcel shelf lights, and flag poles are available. Inside, it's the epitome of luxury. The car boasts a 1,265-watt Bowers & Wilkins surround-sound system with 28 speakers, motorized doors, and power-operated rear sunshades.
Additionally, the Protection offers features like a continuous rear-view camera feed, an integrated microphone allowing external communication without opening any windows or doors, a fresh-air supply system, and a fire extinguisher. And if you need a trained driver, BMW has that covered too.
Performance isn't left behind. While the added armor does take a toll on its acceleration, the electric BMW i7 Protection reaches 60 mph from a standstill in 9 seconds, in contrast to the standard i7's 3.7-second benchmark.
As the pinnacle of luxury and safety in electric vehicles, the BMW i7 Protection, set to make its grand appearance in December 2023, will elevate the standards of automotive engineering.
The standard BMW i7 already ranks among the top best premium all-electric sedans, and its armored counterpart surely merits a similar top spot.
