It’s already confirmed for production, now we’ve got a fairly good look at what BMW’s long-rumored flagship X7 large SUV might look like.

Unveiled overnight, the concept car will make an official debut at this month’s Frankfurt Motor Show.

The concept X7, described officially as being “a taste of the production version”, has a couple of important attributes worth mentioning.

Primarily, the three-row concept vehicle has just six seats, watch for that to change up to seven seats in the production version.

It also sports a new-look front that differs quite significantly from the other existing BMW SUVs with a much more elongated kidney-grille.

BMW tell us this front-end shows design cues for the brand into the future.

BMW boss, Ian Robertson, says the X7 is the natural progression for the X range.

“The X family’s new top model extends BMW’s offering in the luxury class and redefines the concept of luxury for the BMW brand and beyond.

“Furthermore, the BMW Concept X7 demonstrates it’s perfectly possible to combine a large sports activity vehicle with an electrified drivetrain.”

Some of the highlights inside the concept include a huge 12.3” instrument cluster, the rear seat entertainment screens and the massive panoramic glass roof.
