At today’s Annual General Meeting, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG, Harald Krüger, unveiled an initial design concept for the BMW iNEXT.
From what we’re looking, it could be a crossover, hatchback or sedan, but we will see the Vision Vehicle concept later this year as a preview for the road-ready vehicle.
The all-electric BMW iNEXT will be built at Plant Dingolfing from 2021. The company’s new technology flagship incorporates all major strategic areas of innovation including the self-driving tech.
BMW is working on a multiple battery packs for the iNext, with maximum range of up to 700 km (435 miles) for the 120-kWh model.
Harald Krüger, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG, said: “The iNEXT project is our building kit for the future. It will benefit the entire company and all our brands. For the first time, we are combining all key technologies for future mobility in one vehicle.
The iNEXT is fully electric, fully connected and also offers highly automated driving. Today, we gave our shareholders a very first glimpse of the design of the BMW iNEXT. Later this year, we will be presenting the BMW iNEXT as a Vision Vehicle.”
