envisioning a new era of mobility, BMW vision iNEXT is a highly automated, electric and fully connected SAV(sports activity vehicle). with a production model based on the concept planned for 2021, the design is positioned as the brand’s new technology flagship and, as such, showcases some of the technology they may use in the future. this includes three ‘shy tech’ applications: an intelligent personal assistant, intelligent materials and, finally, an intelligent beam.
from first glance, the vision iNEXT looks unmistakably from the BMW i family. the exterior features the large interlinked double-kidney grille, side window graphic and blue accents upon its surfaces. furthermore, its clearly sculpted forms and surfaces define a sophisticated appearance that is furthered with its liquid greyrose copper paintwork, which gradually changes in shade. 3D printed patterns, cameras that replace the exterior mirrors, and slender head and rear lights complete the design.
