Munich Bavaria-based automaker BMW made headlines recently when it celebrated its 100-year birthday during the past week and topped off the candle blowing by unveiling a wild, forward-looking present to the world.
The concept car, as per ZTR’s understanding, provides clues as to what to expect from the German luxury brand’s future direction. However, the concept didn’t preview a new supercar as many had hoped.
Called the Vision Next 100; the concept Car does really give us a glimpse of where BMW is heading in the coming decades, not years!
“BMW is keen to stress that even in a world of autonomous cars, which the automaker predicts is inevitable, you will always be able to actually drive one of its cars” – This is good news for ZTR
In the attached video the BMW creative team explains the idea behind the concept BMW with commentary from BMW Group design boss Adrian van Hooydonk and BMW brand design boss Karim Habib. We also get to see the concept transform from its fully autonomous mode (Ease Mode) to its manual mode (Boost Mode). BMW is keen to stress that even in a world of autonomous cars, which the automaker predicts is inevitable, you will always be able to actually drive one of its cars.
BMW has also set up an interactive feature at the web address http://www.next100.bmw where you can learn more about the Vision Next 100 concept.
