To celebrate its 100th anniversary, BMW have unveiled a series of innovative concept cars dubbed ‘Vision Next 100’, that show how the companies vehicles may well look like in another 100 years. Featuring BMW’s on two and four wheels, as well as offerings from the groups other main brands; Mini and Rolls Royce.
It seems almost a formality that we will move into an age of autonomous self-driving cars, but that may well be the tip of the iceberg. How about being emission and not to mention instrument free. Or a can that can change the colour of it’s ‘skin’ to fit into its surroundings, as well as a sleek, smooth and ultra-aerodynamic body. And this is just the tip of iceberg.
The BMW brand epitomises Sheer Driving Pleasure – past, present and into the next 100 years. BMW aims to make this fascinating driving experience even more intense in the future. The driver is in constant communication with the vehicle in an intuitive and natural way. At the same time, the vehicle expands the driver’s range of perception and transforms him or her into the “Ultimate Driver” – the best driver they can possibly be. The Companion responds to the driver’s personal needs in order to create emotionally-intense experiences.
With the motto “Every MINI is my MINI” – the idea of sharing rather than owning – the MINI of the future no longer waits all day for its owner, but is always on the move as a mobility partner for a MINI community. However, there will still be plenty of people who want to purchase a MINI exclusively for themselves. The MINI Vision Next 100 harnesses its intelligence to tailor the mobility experience to the differing needs of each and every customer.
At a point in time when the world’s design studios are envisaging solutions to mobility questions posed by ever cleverer technologies, the Rolls-Royce Vision Vehicle provides a brief glimpse into a fast-arriving luxury future. Art and beauty can work with science in defining a truly luxurious Rolls-Royce tailored to… your every desire.
And if you wonder where the info or pictures for the BMW Motorrad bike are, then all will be revealed at "Iconic Impulses. The BMW Group Future Experience" show in Los Angeles, Ca in October.
