The BMW E65 is the fourth generation of the BMW 7 Series range of full-size luxury sedans, and was produced from 2001 to 2008. The variants of the range are:
- sedan (E65 model code)
- long-wheelbase sedan (E66 model code)
- armoured car sedan (E67 model code, marketed as High Security 7 Series)
- hydrogen-powered sedan (E68 model code, marketed as Hydrogen 7)
The E65 was the first BMW vehicle to include the iDrive infotainment system, the new brand design language, active anti-roll bars, a 6-speed automatic transmission, an electronic Smart Key (dispensing with the traditional metallic key), and night vision. The 760i model also utilised the world's first production V12 engine to use direct injection.
In late 2008, the E65 7 Series was replaced by the 7 Series (F01).
