The world of high-end luxury cars is rapidly evolving, with the biggest change right now being the switch from internal combustion engines to electric power.
One of the brands hoping to do just that is BMW, who for 2023 has completely revamped its 7 Series sedan in order to thrive in this new age of luxury.
The 7 Series might have lost its V12, but for 2023, it has gained two new M models. The real showstopper will be the BMW i7 M70 xDrive, an all-electric performance sedan that BMW says will generate over 600 horsepower and over 737 lb-ft of torque, making it the most powerful road-going M car yet.
The first variants of the new 7 Series are set to make their way to customers by November 2022, with production commencing at the brand’s Dingolfing plant at the start of July. Initially, the only variant of the car to be available worldwide will be the i7, which will launch in China, Europe, the US, and all other major markets.
The Line: Saudi Arabia’s Revolutionary Urban Utopia
NOEM – Saudi Arabia has unveiled designs for its ambitious urban project “The Line,” touted as a one-building city in the desert which will run entirely on renewable energy and ultimately house 9 million people by 2030.
The 105-mile-long city will snake through the Saudi desert, enclosed on both sides by a mirrored façade — stretching from the Red Sea eastward across the desert and into a mountain range.
Details about the monolithic city
New stats and designs revealed include:
The Line forms part of a Saudi rebrand plan coined Vision 2030 to rival its Gulf neighbours such as Dubai and Abu Dhabi as travel hotspots and reshape the kingdom’s economy. Aiming to reach 100 million annual visitors by the close of the decade, it is hoped the surge would boost the local economy by billions of dollars.
High-End Shoppers show no sign of slowing down
Higher-income or “luxury” shoppers are still willing to spend more money and are widening the product categories they shop, for despite inflation, high gas prices and economic turmoil.
A Saks Luxury Pulse survey revealed that a set of consumers in the United States continue to treat themselves with fashion items and vacations and are increasingly prioritizing health and wellness in terms of luxury self-care.
