Highly automated, emission-free and fully connected, the
BMW Vision iNext brings together the BMW’s strategic innovation fields into a Vision Vehicle for the first time.
It also provides revealing answers to the question: “What does a vehicle look like which no longer needs to be driven by a person but can be if desired?”
At the heart of such deliberations are, more than ever, people – with all their emotions and desires.
The BMW Group has already achieved a great deal on this front: it now has over ten years of experience with electric mobility under its belt in both small-scale and large-scale production, the BMW i models are being improved all the time, and their technology is being employed to gradually electrify models from the BMW and MINI ranges.
The next step now is the complete in-car integration of the strategic innovation fields Autonomy + Connectivity + Electric + Services.
The car we know today as BMW iNext will come onto the market in 2021.
“BMW i exists to generate creative, pioneering ideas which transform the way we think about mobility. The BMW Vision iNext marks another next big step on that journey of transformation, showing how more intelligent vehicles can make our lives easier and more beautiful,” says
Adrian van Hooydonk, Senior Vice President BMW Group Design.
All of BMW’s endeavours will continue to revolve around people – and their needs and desires when it comes to mobility – in the future.
“The possibilities opened up by autonomous driving and ever-expanding connectivity enable a whole new range of experiences and ways of shaping a journey. With this in mind, we have designed the all-electric BMW Vision iNEXT as a mobile environment that enhances quality of life, a new “Favourite Space” in which we can be ourselves and relax,” says
Klaus Fröhlich, Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, responsible for Development.
