Vision 100 BMW

This year sees the BMW Group celebrates its centenary year, under the tag line THE NEXT 100 YEARS. After centenary activities officially began in Munich on 7 March, the company mainly looks into the future, studying what individual mobility would look like in the coming future.

The BMW Group is bringing its vision of the future to life through its futuristic concepts like the BMW VISION NEXT 100, which will be showcased at key cities across the world. The vision vehicle is currently in China to attend the Beijing Auto Show. Later, the vision concept will move on to London, where the company will launch two further vision vehicles of its British brands such as MINI and Rolls-Royce. The final stop will be in Los Angeles, USA, where the fourth and final vision motorcycle concept, from BMW Motorrad is scheduled for reveal that will complete the brand quartet.

Attendees will be able to use interactive contact points and view exhibits to receive insights into the crucial aspects of the future as viewed by each of the company’s brands. The visitors will be taken through the foyer into various thematic spaces, the inner rotunda and the brand areas.

The BMW VISION NEXT 100 is a shape shifting concept that stands for the brand’s renowned driving pleasure at the push of a button. The driver can take control of the car anytime and can opt between Boost and Ease modes, switching between full-autonomous driving and manual control with the car changing its configurations according to the drive mode selected.

The vision driver will remain in the focus, with continuous connectivity, digital intelligence and state-of-the-art technologies available for support that will turn the driver into the ultimate driver.

Being a concept that wants to showcase a slice of the future, the BMW Group has added some outstanding features like bodywork that stretches over the front wheel arches, a fully connected suite of Artificial Intelligence interface which frees the cabin from infotainment display and all the information is projected directly on the windshield. Additionally, the shape shifting concept is loaded with a deluge of assistance systems that are intended to provide an intense driving experience if the users opt manual driving mode that is.

The vision concept also features narrow twin LED headlamps, illuminated kidney grille, drag reduction wheels, scissor doors and a low slung two-door coupe body style.
