INTRODUCING SHY-TECH.

As part of BMW’s Natural Interaction which is found in the Vision iNEXT, Shy-Tech includes the ‘normal’ surfaces that instantly transform into user interfaces. For example, the Jacquard cloth in the rear comes to life at the touch of a finger and can control the music playing.

BMW Personal copilot

PICK YOUR MODE.

The BMW Vision iNEXT BMW comes with Personal CoPilot technology that lets you decide between Boost mode – where you actually take the wheel – and Ease mode, which lets you relax while the iNEXT puts its highly automated driving skills to good use.

Smart Beams

SMART BEAMS.

Intelligent Beam is a state-of-the-art feature in the iNEXT that serves as both a dynamic reading light and an interactive projection screen. For example, text in a printed book can be supplemented by images and interactive graphics, all of which can be controlled by touch.

AHEAD OF ITS TIME.

Large surfaces and precise lines make the car appear as if it was made from one piece. The Liquid Greyrose Copper exterior gradually changes from warm copper to dark rose and exudes dynamic flair even when standing still. The windscreen merges seamlessly into a large panoramic roof, giving the body a light appearance and opening up the interior even more. The large, interlinked double-kidney grille and blue accents hint to its BMW i genetics.

BREAKING TRADITION.

Thanks to its interplay of fine woods, hand-woven jacquard fabric and Alcantara in Purus Rosé, the interior is especially inviting.

A unique floating centre console offers a particularly 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-like atmosphere.

"EASE" AND "BOOST" DRIVING MODES.

Driver’s place BMW Vision iNEXT with steering wheel and dashboard
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.

PRACTICALLY INVISIBLE, ALWAYS AVAILABLE.

At first glance, the only displays are in the driver’s area. In the future, technology will no longer be the focus; people will be. 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.

Intelligent Personal Assistant

Intelligent Personal Assistant.

Controlled by voice command, the Intelligent Personal Assistant knows all of the vehicle’s capabilities and provides interactive advice, learning over time and adapting to your behaviour. It is seamlessly interlinked with BMW’s digital ecosystem, making it possible for drivers to control their smart home systems.
Intelligent Material

Intelligent Material.

Thanks to Shy-Tech, unexpected surfaces can instantly transform into extraordinary user interfaces. For example, the Jacquard cloth in the rear 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.
Intelligent Beam

Intelligent Material.

Intelligent Beam is a ground-breaking reinvention of the modern screen, creating interactive projected surfaces within the interior. The intelligent light recognises objects and follows them. For example, text in a printed book can be supplemented by images and interactive graphics, all of which can be controlled by touch.

BORN FROM MULTIPLE VISIONS.

The BMW Vision iNEXT comes from a dream to harmonise futuristic technologies in a modern living space. The design is the result of an internal competition. BMW designers competed using their hand-drawn sketches and visualisations and, through many rounds, the best designs were chosen until one was selected for implementation. Up to 18 months passed from the ideation stage to the final concept car.
