        Once the moniker with a L, once without.
        As far as I know BMW will offer at the US-market only the long model and therefore the badge has no L in general.
        The first pic was taken at the Detroit Motor Show. So I assume therefore it has no L because it's a model for the US-market.

          Correct, the U.S only gets the LWB, so no L is needed.

          I think it's terrible they went without the SWB M760i in Europe :(

            I think the S-Klasse is the same way in a North America? Only available in Extended Wheelbase and not identified with the "L"?

            That's correct. However there's no "L" in the moniker of the W222/V222. SWB or LWB, both are called just S500 on the bootlid.

            Shanghai. And the National launch of the latest 7er models to the Chinese market.
            Namely the 740e iPerformance. And the M760Li xDrive.
            image.
            Of course it was joined with the other models that make up the 7er for the Chinese market.

                          March 2017: G11/G12 BMW 7 Series with the best 5-Series features

                          f0b3a5edd824b6a04399a7f1943cae78.

                          Shortly after the market launch of the new 5 Series, the G11/G12 BMW 7 Series will receive a series of updates. As of March 2017, new infotainment and assistance systems will enter the luxury flagship, which will retain its leadership role within the BMW family. Features such as the more powerful BMW Personal CoPilot, which now also carries out lane changes at the touch of a button, were not yet ready for the market launch of the 7 series and are now being presented to the luxury class clientele as quickly as possible.

                          The Driving Assistant Plus includes an additional driving assist between 70 km/h and 180 km/h on roads with structurally separated directional bays and an evasive assistant at speeds of up to 160 km/h with sudden lane changes and thus unexpected avoidance maneuvers, making steering much safer.

                          b816afde24c31c409c4fb52c18335243.

                          New on board is also a crossover alert, which warns of a possible fault in the event of an unbraked approach to a priority road. With the help of the navigation system, a warning system is also implemented, which warns you about the wrong direction of travel before entering motorways, roundabouts and one-way streets, thus stifling dangerous situations in the bud.

                          08466c07310cd82d175b4f39ea01fb0a.

                          The technology update for the BMW 7 Series is rounded off with the Remote 3D View function. This feature celebrated its premiere on the G30 5 Series and makes it possible to retrieve the images collected from the cameras of the SurroundView system on the smartphone as well. With the help of the BMW Connected App, the owner can at any time remotely control the surroundings of his vehicle.

                          3f27b1503a683230ed681212d5877635.

                          The fact that the latest iDrive generation finds its way into the BMW 7 Series in the same breath is self-evident. Just like in the 5 Series, the tiles of the main menu can also be freely moved and configured in the 7 Series’ direct field of view. A new addition is the Messages menu item, which allows convenient access to incoming SMS and emails. The tiles now also provide live information, for example, the navigation tile will already be played in the main menu with a current map display.

                            BMW to test self-driving 7 series models this year

                            6cc728f86b2b9492440e9d6e9063fb4a.

                            2017 is the year of autonomous driving. More than ever, companies from around the world are heavily investing in the future of self-driving automobiles. While some automakers are at Level 1 or 2 on the scale of autonomous systems, others like Tesla have already deployed Level 3 systems on the road.

                            BMW is currently delivering Level 2 driving-assistance systems which are rapidly seeing an improvement from one car to the next one. The G11/G12 7 Series is already 18 months behind the G30 5 Series which we’ve recently tested. But, as previewed at the 2017 CES, the next generation self-driving systems is just around the corner.

                            5e5697a0841dbd4dfd20a76e51d06372.

                            This year, BMW will push forward with their autonomous driving plans by dispatching a fleet of autonomous vehicles to U.S. and European cities in this year’s second half, the next step in its partnership with Mobileye NV and Intel Corp. to introduce fully self-driving vehicles by 2021. The German automaker will put 40 of its 7 Series sedans on the road and train them to drive in urban areas, Klaus Froehlich, BMW’s head of development, said in an interview. The goal is to apply the gathered data toward producing the iNext, which will supplant the 7 Series as the BMW brand’s flagship model and be capable of full autonomy four years from now.

                            This news follows the partnership that was announced between the BMW Group, Intel and Mobileye in July of last year. The companies have since developed a scalable architecture that can be adopted by other automotive developers and carmakers to pursue state of the art designs and create differentiated brands. The offerings scale from individual key integrated modules to a complete end-to-end solution providing a wide range of differentiated consumer experiences.

                            BMW will be following Uber Technologies Inc. and Volvo Cars in putting autonomous cars on the road, with the latter two companies partnering on test vehicles in Pittsburgh and Arizona. Other carmakers have been reluctant so far to heed BMW’s call for adopting its platform. Rival Daimler AG has said it prefers to develop its own technology.

                            “If everybody would use the same network, it will be best,” Froehlich said. “At the beginning, I think only premium cars will be able to afford such technology.”
