The interior, re-envisioned: The BMW Vision iNEXT breaks with tradition to reinterpret mobile quality of life. The interior is especially inviting with its interplay of fine woods and hand-woven Jacquard fabric as well as Alcantara in Purus Rosé, a colour which perfectly supplements the furniture-like, open design of the various elements. A coffee table that appears as if it is hovering offers a special highlight. Its fine, open-pore wood surface with Jacquard fabric sits upon an illuminated crystal shell that stretches to the rear compartment, adding a further touch to the lounge atmosphere.

You only need one look to realise that the BMW Vision iNEXT is ahead of its time. Large surfaces and precise lines, some of which feature blue accents, make the car seem as if it was made from one piece. Its understated design language contrasts with the elaborate paint finish and the eye-catching detailing: The Liquid Greyrose Copper exterior gradually changes in shade from warm copper to dark rose and injects the vehicle with dynamic flair even when stationary. The windscreen merges seamlessly into a large panoramic roof, giving the vehicle’s body a light appearance and opening up the interior even more. The large, interlinked double-kidney grille, the iconic side window graphic, as well as the blue accents clearly highlight the BMW i genes. 


The pioneering technologies of the BMW Vision iNEXT.

Practically invisible – but always available. At first glance, the only displays are in the driver’s area: there are no other displays or buttons to be seen. In the future, technology will no longer be the focus; people will be the focus. Surfaces such as wood or fabric are controllable via gesture or voice control, so digital technologies only become visible when the driver or passengers want to use them. It’s an intelligent step towards the future.

Intelligent Material.

The BMW Vision iNEXT can read your needs from your fingertips. When driving in “Boost” mode, the control display can be operated using touch functionality. In “Ease” mode, the wooden surface of the furniture-like centre console can be used instead. Whenever any inputs are made, points of light follow the finger like magic, providing visual feedback. The Jacquard cloth in the rear likewise comes to life at the touch of a finger and allows music playback to be controlled using various gestures, which are given visual emphasis by LEDs that light up underneath the cloth. Thanks to Shy Tech, unexpected surfaces can instantly transform into extraordinary user interfaces.

Intelligent Personal Assistant.

Always at your side: Controlled by voice command, the Intelligent Personal Assistant supports you wherever you go. The visionary technology knows all of the vehicle’s capabilities and provides you with interactive advice. At the same time, it learns from you over time and adapts itself to your behaviour. The Intelligent Personal Assistant is seamlessly interlinked with BMW’s digital ecosystem, making it possible for drivers to control their smart home systems. In the future, drivers will work together with their cars in perfect harmony.

Intelligent Beam.

Projecting the future: The Intelligent Beam in the BMW Vision iNEXT is a ground-breaking reinvention of the modern screen. It creates interactive projected surfaces within the interior, and the technology may soon replace standard displays. The intelligent light recognises objects and follows them. The text in a printed book, for example, can be supplemented by images, moving contents and interactive graphics, all of which can be controlled by touch. Dynamic projection mapping makes sure that the contents are always displayed correctly even when the surface is in motion.

The “Ease” and “Boost” driving modes in the BMW Vision iNEXT.

Thanks to the innovative BMW Personal CoPilot technology, when you sit inside the BMW Vision iNEXT, you can decide whether you want to drive or let autonomous driving take the wheel. In “Boost” mode, you take the wheel. “Ease” mode lets your BMW Vision iNEXT handle the roads with highly automated driving. By voice command or by touching the BMW logo on the steering wheel, the interior changes as follows: The steering wheel moves back to provide more room and the pedals sink in to create a flat surface on the floor. The driver and front passenger can then turn to face the other passengers in the back. In addition, the displays will provide informative details about the immediate surroundings.

Born of multiple visions: The BMW Vision iNEXT comes from the dream to create an entirely new vehicle that harmonises futuristic technologies in a modern living space. The design is the result of an internal competition. BMW designers compete using their hand-drawn sketches and visualisations. Through many rounds, the best designs are chosen until one is selected for implementation. Up to 18 months pass from the ideation stage to the final concept car. Adrian van Hooydonk, Senior Vice President BMW Group Design: “BMW i exists to generate creative, pioneering ideas which transform the way we think about mobility. The BMW Vision iNEXT marks another next big step on that journey of transformation, showing how more intelligent vehicles can make our lives easier and more beautiful.”
