BMW Looks to the Future with Concept Vehicle
March 9, 2016—As BMW Group celebrates its centennial anniversary, the company offered a glimpse at its future at an event earlier this week, debuting its Vision Next 100 concept car, a versatile fully autonomous vehicle that could also be customized to the driver’s changing needs.
“At the BMW Group, we are always on a quest for the best solution. It’s part of our DNA,” said Harald Krüger, chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG, at the Centenary Event in Munich on Monday. “It’s also the spirit of our collaborations, a recurring theme that permeates our corporate and leadership culture.”
The BMW Vision Next 100 combines the sporty design of a coupe with the elegance of a sedan. It can operate either as an autonomous vehicle or as a driver-controlled vehicle. The concept is chock full of technology, such as a HUD windshield and internet connectivity. While in autonomous mode, the seats can rotate in the cabin so the passengers can face each other.
