A new report states BMW will sell the next-gen 7-Series in United States exclusively in the long wheelbase configuration.

Our friends at BMWBLOG were the ones who obtained the information from a customer who recently attended a preview event organized by BMW for the highly anticipated overhauled 7-Series. Interestingly, the model won't be sold with the usual "Li" suffix as the Bavarian marque will simply use "i" for the long wheelbase (G12 generation) 7-Series sold in United States.

Scheduled to debut on June 10, the new flagship model from BMW has lost up to 286 lbs (130 kg) and will come equipped as standard with a two-axle air suspension benefiting from automatic self-leveling to ensure a silky smooth ride. It will be BMW's first model ever to boast a touchscreen iDrive infotainment system and will also have a remote control parking system.

A proper public debut is set for September at the Frankfurt Motor Show and sales in Europe are programmed to kick off before the end of the year.
