Bangkok. BMW Thailand is continuing to offer superior experience and the very best in comfort on every journey with the delivery of 22 BMW 730Ld Pure Excellence limousines to Airports of Thailand to offer customers best-in-class premium limousine services from Suvarnabhumi Airport under operation by Siam Car Rents. For more than 10 years, Airports of Thailand has placed its trust in BMW in building a fleet of world-class shuttle vehicles for tourists and travelers.


The BMW 730Ld Pure Excellence is powered by a 3.0-liter straight six diesel plant with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology, the BMW 730Ld Pure Excellence is capable of delivering up to 265hp and 620Nm torque to its wheels via an eight-speed automatic gearbox, allowing it to reach 100 km/h from a standstill in 6.2 seconds while still offering passengers genuine, relaxing pleasure on the road.


The exterior of the BMW 730Ld Pure Excellence offers agility and safety thanks to the Carbon Core body structure, an inheritance from the development of the revolutionary BMW i8 hybrid sports car. BMW 730Ld Pure Excellence combines ultra-lightweight Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) with steel and aluminum in an intelligent body concept that vastly improves the strength and rigidity of the passenger cell while at the same time significantly reducing vehicle weight.


The interior design boasts luxury and state-of-the-art technology ranging from an iDrive operating system with a touchscreen function for the Control Display to BMW gesture control feature. Both the front and rear seats come with comfort seats and active seat ventilation as well as massage and seat heating functions. Maximizing personal wellbeing in the rear compartment, meanwhile, are the Executive Lounge Seating and the Sky Lounge Panorama glass roof.
