The BMW Vision M NEXT concept car is eye-catching with its low, wedge-shaped silhouette, gullwing doors, and bold color choice. BMW fans should take note that this is the future-focused reference design for the BMW Turbo and BMW i8.
The Vision M NEXT has electric motors on both axles, in addition to a powerful four-cylinder petrol engine which sends its power to the rear wheels. You’ll be able to go from 0 to 100km/h (62mps) in 3 seconds with a maximum of 600 hp. It’s a little surprising the BMW will Future-proofed urban driving thanks to an electric range of 100 km (62 miles). If you need more BOOST+ mode provides extra power at the touch of a button. The car will alert the driver to the ideal moment for BOOST+.
The front and rear of the car are classic BMW with an updated twist. The debut application of Laser Wire light technology provides a modern contrast with striking light design. On the rear, we have a pair of BMW roundels that give a two-dimensional feel as they appear to float within the rear lights.
The driver is at the center of the experience with the BOOST Pod interface. It unifies all control options and information on three visual tiers directly ahead of the driver. The first plane is formed by the horizontally arranged steering wheel featuring two small displays. The second plane is a Curved Glass Display, which is making its debut appearance and stretches around the steering wheel. The full-surface Augmented Reality Head-Up Display in the windscreen constitutes the third plane.
Boost Pod definitely has a Tron like feel.
Focus logic is an added layer of interaction where the information displayed adapts to the car’s speed. The higher the speed, the more focused the information and the more it moves into the driver’s direct field of view.
The interior follows the trend of vegan interiors which is made of woven synthetic fibers in Midnight Blue.
BMW is also adding to the premium experience with Visionary Valet Parking Service. A concierge is on hand when the driver arrives at their destination to take the vehicle, park it and bring it back again at the desired time. All you need is the MyBMW app.
