The I-CAR Repairability Technical Support (RTS) team recently developed a new I-CAR 360° video on the 2017 BMW 7 Series. The video provides a 360° tour around the all new 7 Series.
The video includes an overview of the vehicle structure, including the expanded use of mixed materials in order to make the vehicle more lightweight. This includes the use of extruded aluminum parts, such as the front lower rails, strut tower, and front of the rear rails. Adding to the decreased weight is the use of BMWs carbon core technology, which is installed with rivets and adhesive. The video also includes an overview of some of the advanced driver safety and convenience system options.
