BMW i Next, is another concept of German concern that is scheduled for production by 2021. The i Next could become the ultimate self-driving electric luxurious car.
Harald Krüger, the Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG stated at 96th Annual General Meeting of BMW AG in Munich on May 2016:
“In 2018, we will launch a BMW i8 Roadster. This will be followed in 2021 by the BMW i NEXT, our new innovation driver, with autonomous driving, digital connectivity, intelligent lightweight design, a totally new interior and ultimately bringing the next generation of electro-mobility to the road.”
“The discussion about e-mobility is an emotional one, but the decisive factor is that we move things forward.”
As of now, BMW doesn’t specify the look and design of the BMW i Next. However at a celebration of the Munich-based automaker’s 100-year anniversary, BMW unveiled its futuristic Vision Next 100 that features a steering wheel that folds away when the car is switched to an autonomous “Ease” mode.
