This year marks the 100th anniversary of BMW. To celebrate, the automaker hosted an event at their Munich headquarters to reflect on their history and offer a preview of the future of the BMW group of brands. The BMW Vision Next 100 is the first of a series of advanced concept vehicles unveiled this year to show how design and technology will respond to people’s mobility needs in the coming decades.
This is a true concept car that BMW is using to explore four main themes:How autonomous technology will fit within a brand known as ‘The Ultimate Driving Machine’ The role artificial intelligence will play as a driver assistant How new materials will alter the design and function of vehicles Retaining the positive emotional appeal of driving a performance car
Designed from the inside out, the Vision Next 100’s cabin is a spacious dome. The vehicle operates in a choice of two modes, manual driving Boost Mode and autonomous Ease Mode.
