BMW VISION NEXT 100 is our exciting vision for the future
These six focus areas comprise our view of the future. They also form the basis and inspiration for the design of the BMW VISION NEXT 100 vision vehicle.
Resembling a large polished gemstone in the centre of the instrument panel beneath the front windscreen, the Companion provides intuitive and subtle assistance in every driving situation, symbolising a new intelligent communication between human and car.
Perfect connectivity between you and your surroundings enables the Companion to provide the right recommendations to meet personal mobility preferences, both on the road and outside. In this way, every trip is a personalised and emotionally rewarding experience.
Alive Geometry is a mosaic of 800 sensor-activated triangles that form a dynamic analogue display, spanning the entire surface of the dashboard. These triangles alert you to potential dangers ahead, generating dynamic patterns, by moving and turning red in response to other road users or objects in the vehicle's vicinity.
This revolutionary form of preconscious communication all takes place on the dashboard in your peripheral vision, which means Alive Geometry does not deflect attention from your field of primary vision – the road ahead.
In fully autonomous Ease Mode, the Companion takes over all driving duties. It provides constant route, road condition and performance updates along the way, ensuring you and your passengers arrive safely at your destination.
In Boost Mode, everything revolves around driving performance. That’s why the Head-up Display shows ideal driving lines and braking, steering and acceleration points directly in your field of vision.
As well as increasing privacy, the vision vehicle’s reflective glass reduces the interior heating of the vehicle by 30%.
Enclosed wheel arches help reduce drag and lower energy consumption.
Thanks to a streamlined design and fully closed outer shell, an exceptionally low drag of just 0.18cW is delivered.
The 100% leather-free interior finishings are produced using mono-materials. These optimise the production process as they can be printed directly with paint.
