Looking 100 years into the future to celebrate their 100 year past, BMW envisions a concept fit for the years to come. The VISION NEXT 100 concept focuses on “Sheer Driving Pleasure,” according to the car maker, with driver experience at the top of the list.
VISION NEXT 100 features an array of futuristic components, which allow the driver to be fully immersed and connected to the vehicle for an intense driving experience. Innovation permeates the vehicle, but BMW pays special attention to three factors in particular: intuitive technology called Digital Companion, aerodynamics and object alter through Alive Geometry and intense vs laid back driving experience thanks to Boost and Ease functionality.
Ergonomics and intuitive technology are all taken into account as the interior is fashioned to “create space and the right atmosphere for entertainment and relaxation according to the driver’s preference,” according to the car maker. While the car is being self-driven through Digital Companion, the driver can relax in comfort.
Like something out of Minority Report, the Alive Geometry transforms the dashboard of the vehicle into a mass of moving triangles that the driver can manipulate according to their exterior surroundings. The purpose of this Alive Geometry is to provide the VISION NEXT 100 with the most accurate, real-time information on surroundings.
The two driving modes, Boost and Ease, give the driver complete control over their experience. Boost mode is for the driver that wishes to be in control– as he or she would in a traditional, 21st Century vehicle. Ease mode allows the car to be self-driven so the driver can relax on their journey.
The new VISION NEXT 100 concept is definitely something out of the not-so-distant future. Check out more photos below. What do you think of the vehicle? Let us know in the comments below.
