The German based automaker BMW is planning to add two new versions to the facelifted 7-Series, the 728i and the 750i, which might join the lineup in March next year.

There is no official word on this subject for the moment from the carmaker but rumors are saying that the Munich based company will launch an M Performance version of the facelifted 7-Series which is expected to be sold under the M750i name. this version will get a 4.4 liter TwinTurbo engine under its hood, which will produce a total output of 450 HP (335 kW) and the model will be available with an xDrive all-wheel drive system. The chassis will be improved in the new M750i and it will be slotted above the 760Li, regarding its price tag.

Besides the 750i which should join the BMW 7-Series lineup, the car manufacturer is also planning to develop a 728i version of the model, which will most likely get a 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine under its hood, along with an electric motor, just like the Audi A8 Hybrid. The version is expected to get 245 HP (182 kW) and an improved fuel consumption and CO2 emissions and it will be offered as a new entry-level model.
