Three of the four BMW Group Vision Next 100 vehicles were introduce – or in one case re-introduced – this week in London. The BMW Vision Next 100 joined two world premieres, the MINI Vision Next 100 and the Rolls-Royce Vision Next 100.

BMW’s vision for the next 100 years is a sporting sedan since sedans are at BMW’s core, according to Adrian von Hooydonk – BMW Group Chief Designer. BMW Vision Next 100 is also autonomous, shape-shifting and powered by an unnamed drivetrain.

 In person, the futuristic BMW looks closer to a production car than the photos have previously revealed. The BMW VISION NEXT 100 stands for the brand’s renowned driving pleasure. In the future, BMW drivers will still want to spend most of the time they are in their car at the wheel. In the BMW VISION NEXT 100, the driver will remain firmly in the focus, with constant connectivity, digital intelligence and state-of-the-art technologies available for support. But that’s not all: the BMW VISION NEXT 100 will turn the driver into the “Ultimate Driver”.

The car has two driving modes, one of them involving fully autonomous functions.

In developing the BMW VISION NEXT 100, the main objective was to create not an anonymous vehicle but one that is highly personalized and fully geared to meet the driver’s every need. For the BMW VISION NEXT 100, the design team specifically took into account all the trends and technological developments that will be most relevant to BMW in the decades ahead.
