BMW’s flagship luxury sedan is back for a ninth generation and has officially hit Dhaka streets. Launched at the Executive Motors showroom on September 12, the new 745 Le x-Drive is an AWD, 3.0 litre inline six (394 HP, 600 NM torque combined) powered behemoth of plug-in hybrid luxury.
There’s surround sound (courtesy of Harmann Kardon), 360 degree cameras, display keys, Executive Lounges (think first class seats on airplanes), subtle ambient lighting, gesture control, heated and massaging seats, M-sports pack (bodykit, wheels) as well as your very own tablet so you can control all these features without ever having to reach for buttons like a mere peasant.
If there’s one word that describes luxury in motion, try 7. Oh wait, that’s a number. Here’s a few more: 2,50,00,000 Taka starting price.
