Although still in concept mode, the car is going to become a thing of reality in 2021.
BMW is once again proving, that it really is one of the key players in the field of electric and hybrid cars. After all, there are already over quarter of a million electrified BMW cars on the roads around the world today with sales numbers rising fast. Also, it is already well into development of its first fully electric SUV, the iX3 (based on ICE-driven X3), which is expected to arrive somewhere in 2020.
Yesterday's Annual General Meeting brought another new car from German car manufacturer. Although still in concept mode, or better said on the drawing table, BMW presented their next fully electric vehicle, called BMW iNext. Being rather scarce with details, it is known, that it is going to become a production ready vehicle somewhere in 2021 in is going to be "company's new technology flagship."
"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," said Harald Krüger, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW.
