The future is inevitable. It’s on its way, bringing new technologies with it. To prepare for what’s to come, BMW is showing off where they believe the future will take them. More specifically, where the future will take their M Performance brand. Introducing BMW Vision M Next, the ultimate autonomous sports car. If it looks familiar, that’s because its style was inspired by the BMW Turbo, i8 and M1.
For the Vision M Next, BMW is going off of two different “experience concepts”: “EASE” and “BOOST”. The EASE concept revolves around the car being a mobile living space. BOOST, as you probably guessed, is all about the car providing the ultimate driving experience. BMW is essentially aiming for a car that the driver can actively control in a sporty manner and also relax in without worrying about the road.
Most concept cars like this one don’t have a powertrain attached to it. Thankfully, BMW did indulge us on what would be powering the Vision M Next. Power for the car would be provided by a hybrid powertrain that consists of electric motors and a turbocharged four-cylinder engine. BMW says the total power output would be at 600 horsepower, with a top speed of 186 mph and a 0 to 62 mph time of three seconds.
As of now, the BMW Vision M Next is purely a concept car, but technology from it will more than likely find its way into future production cars.
