BMW Shares Their Vision of the Future With the Vision Next 100 (7 Photos + Video)

4 min read

German carmaker BMW has revealed its concept of the car of the future, called the BMW Vision Next 100 Concept.

The car was unveiled at a special event in Munich on Monday, and is the first of four concept cars for its four brands, BMW, Mini, Rolls and motorcycles, which are being released to mark the company’s centenary.

The concept car has two modes, called “Ease,” an autonomous mode, and “Boost,” when a person is driving it; the interior of the car changes according to which more it is being used in.

The Boost mode “expands the driver’s range of perception and transforms him or her into the ‘Ultimate Driver’ – the best driver they can possibly be,” BMW says.

The interior also has revolutionary “skin,” or “alive geometry,” scales which change color to alert the driver to incidents and objects ahead. The scales are also visible from the exterior of the car in the form of movable wheelhouse covers for optimal aerodynamics, the company explained.

In addition, the “heads-up display” projects signals and directional arrows on the windscreen, within the driver’s field of vision.

BMW’s head of design Adrian van Hooydonk said that the company wanted to produce a car that would capture people’s imagination.
