German automaker BMW is planning on introducing the 725Ld India. We believe that the 725Ld might be offered as the base variant among the 7 Series trims in India. Supporting claims, a recent import report shows the BMW has brought in the 725Ld with a 1995cc diesel engine for homologation.

BMW 7 Series 725Ld

The engine in new BMW 725Ld is believed to be a part of the B47 four-cylinder common rail diesel engine offered by the German automaker. Post launch, this luxury sedan can comfortably be introduced in the Delhi-NCR region which has banned the registration of cars that are powered by over 2.0-litre diesel engines. This will also mean that the new BMW 725Ld with a smaller diesel engine will have an upper hand in the luxury car market where other leading automakers like Mercedes-Benz and Jaguar are yet to offer smaller diesel engine options. In terms of features, the 725Ld will share similar features with the regular 7 Series. A detailed report on the specifications will be known in the coming days.

Apart from Delhi-NCR region, the BMW 725Ld will also gain a stronghold in Kerala and other cities where NGT has been petitioning to ban the registration of over 2-litre diesel engine cars. On the pricing aspect, as the 725Ld is expected to be offered as a base variant, we believe that it might be priced lower than the current 7 Series range.
