BMW today unveiled an initial design concept for the new BMW iNEXT where it will be built at the Dingolfing plant in Germany from 2021 onward.
It’s said that the company’s new technology flagship will incorporate all major strategic areas of innovation in a road-ready vehicle and you’d be quite right to assume that they’re referring to the autonomous driving technology as well.
Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG, Harald Krüger said, “The iNEXT is fully electric, fully connected, offers highly automated driving and will be presented as a Vision Vehicle later this year.”
As for now, no technical specifications were revealed save for this vague silhouette that seems to resemble that of a hatchback or possibly even a crossover. If anything, the window frames seem to take the shape of the BMW i Vision Dynamics; revealed at last year’s Frankfurt Motor Show.
Recently, BMW also premiered the brand’s first ever all-electric vehicle, the BMW Concept iX3, at the 2018 Beijing Motor Show. Its new platform is capable of accommodating all types of powertrain and drivetrain layouts.
It’s equipped with BMW’s 5th-generation eDrive system that’s lighter and more compact where its electric motor is said to be capable of 272 hp with a pure electric driving range of more than 400 km from its 70 kWh battery pack.
