The 2017 Chicago Auto Show kicked off last week and BMW is once again present to introduce to the world their latest models. The new BMW 5 Series is the main star at the BMW booth in Chicago this week, but one other model might outshine the business sedan. The 2017 BMW i8 Protonic Red took the front stage and has greeted BMW’s visitors with its futuristic design lines and flashy exterior.

Along with the special i8, BMW is also displaying a series of plug-in hybrids. The 740e limousine is one of the hybrids displayed, next to the 330e iPerformance. The X family is represented by their only plug-in hybrid – the X5 xDrive40e.

    Didnt know that they still put xenon on the new 7 series…why??

      drivers gonna need something to lighten the road with when it gets dark. They might as well strap a couple of flashlights up front for that matter, but it is very annoying to climb out of the car to do that every time it gets dark, it might fall off during the drive creating a dangerous situation etc… So why not build the car with them in place already, since you’re probably gonna need them anyways?

    • DM says:

      BMW has always continued to offer obsolete lighting technology (e.g. halogens when xenon was an industry standard). Now that Adaptive LEDs are widespread this pattern continues? There must be some threshold where it becomes cost prohibitive to implement bi-directional xenons compared to the cost of LEDs since this technology now offers cost incentives at scaled high-volume production.

    • Mark G says:

      The new 7-Series does not come with xenon lights at all. Those pictured are the standard LED headlights that are non-adaptive. They do have LED cornering lights.

      There is an option for adaptive LED headlights that turn with the steering wheel as well as bring the automatic high-beam functionality.

    The G12 7 series looks bald to me from the front fascia. Something is missing.
