The BMW Group has presented two world debuts to mark the opening of its exhibition and event platform, “Iconic Impulses. The BMW Group Future Experience”.
Following the BMW VISION NEXT 100, unveiled at the Munich Centenary Event on 7 March, the two latest interpretations of future mobility come from MINI and Rolls-Royce and were presented at the Roundhouse in London. A fourth Vision Vehicle, by BMW Motorrad, will be premiered on 16 October in Los Angeles, USA, completing the BMW Group’s brand quartet.
The key idea behind the MINI VISION NEXT 100 is responsible use of resources for personal mobility. This MINI will be available to everybody at all times, picking drivers up autonomously from wherever they like and adjusting the car’s appearance, driving characteristics and connectivity to suit the user’s personal lifestyle. New, customised mobility with the MINI VISION NEXT 100 builds on connected digital intelligence.
Fully autonomous, the Rolls-Royce VISION NEXT 100 takes luxury to a new dimension. The interior of the Rolls-Royce VISION NEXT 100 will be a private retreat, a “Grand Sanctuary” in which a virtual assistant, “Eleanor”, not only drives the vehicle but also fulfils the customer’s every wish throughout the journey. The Rolls-Royce VISION NEXT 100 represents just one possible option for a unique, personal, customised Rolls-Royce.
