Unveiled within the fuselage of a cargo plane at New York’s JFK airport, BMW’s newest electric car concept, the Vision iNEXT, has set the scene for how the German automaker would like to describe the future: an intelligent, autonomous, electric SUV.
It’s no secret that SUVs are increasingly gaining market share, while carmakers are investing more and more resources on electric vehicle technologies – and this concept from BMW encapsulates both these aspects.
“With this in mind, we have designed the BMW Vision iNEXT fully electric as a mobile environment that enhances the quality of life in which we can relax. Indeed, all BMW’s efforts will continue to focus on people in the future,” he said in a statement.
It’s definitely a step up from BMW’s current electric offerings, the BMW i3 and BMW i8, and in more than just the futuristic exterior modelling.
