Official Release: For the first time ever, BMW and Uber have partnered to offer Uber users the opportunity to experience the all-new BMW 7 Series through exclusive on-demand test drives or chauffeured ride experiences ahead of the vehicle’s U.S. retail launch on October 24. Starting at 12pm local time today, Uber users in New York, NY; Miami, FL; Los Angeles, CA and Chicago, IL will have the opportunity to receive a complimentary ride from a BMW Product Specialist to a destination of their choice in the brand new BMW 7 Series. On Saturday, October 17 and Sunday, October 18, prospective 7 Series customers in those same markets were able to test-drive the new 7 Series on-demand through the Uber app.
“With our new 7 Series being the most innovative vehicle in its class, it’s only fitting that we partnered with Uber to offer a unique and exciting way to experience our flagship model prior to retail launch,” said Jason Chan, 6 & 7 Series Product Manager for BMW of North America.
“We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the launch of the BMW 7 Series than by offering Uber riders the unique chance to upgrade their ride and are thrilled to partner with BMW on this first-of-a-kind experience,” said Amy Friedlander Hoffman, Head of Business Development and Experiential Marketing at Uber.
