  • BMW i Vision Dynamics concept 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show

The iNEXT is a concept that's another Vision Vehicle along the same lines as the Vision Dynamics concept we were presented with at last year's Frankfurt Motor Show. Today, we gave our shareholders a very first glimpse of the design of the BMW iNEXT. The iNext, discussed several times by BMW over the past year, will be a pure electric vehicle that will serve as a introduction to what all new BMW's will eventually be like. We can expect the final design to be similar in size and shape to an X5, in other words a mid-size SUV.

The iNext is created to be a technology showcase for BMW: electric propulsion, full self-driving, and advanced interfaces, said BMW CEO Harald Krueger.

BMW originally announced in 2016 that it had joined the race to produce fully autonomous cars and has teamed up with tech firms Intel and Mobileye in a bid to offer its first fully self-driving vehicle in 2021.

The iNext, he said, would be fully electric, powered by fifth-generation battery technology giving it a range of about 700 kilometres, fully connected and would also offer a new level of automated driving. Level 3 means the driver can let go of the wheel and even look away for extended periods, though they have to be ready to take over within seconds.

Through April, BMW's global brand sales grew 2.5 per cent, while Mercedes' registrations surged 13 per cent. The highlight was a gesture control system called AirTouch that enables control of entertainment, navigation and communication functions using purely hand gestures. That said, the sketch does confirm that the iNext will be in the form of a crossover, which is something BMW has not previously acknowledged.

The BMW iNext is expected to launch sometime in 2021. An i4 sedan has also been confirmed.
