“And we will also introduce an all-electric high-security vehicle for the first time – with no comprises when it comes to the standard of protection for our customers. It will be based on the BMW i7, demonstrating how sustainability and security can go hand in hand.”

Frank Weber, head of R&D for BMW, who believes that the BMW i7 will make a good security vehicle, added that :

“So using this high-tech product as a platform for a top-class high-security vehicle seemed to us like the obvious thing to do.” says Frank Weber.

There’s no official rating for the i7 Security’s armored protection yet, but the BMW X5 VR6 Protection has VR6-rated levels of armor that allows it to withstand fire from an AK-47 assault rifle as well as withstand hand Grenades.
