will be pure-electric. With a BMW i Vision Dynamics we are
showcasing how we visualize destiny electric mobility between a i3 and
i8: a energetic and progressive, four-door Gran Coupe. We are therefore
electrifying a heart of a BMW code and, during a same time,
elevating BMW i into a totally new dimension.”
BMW i sets a gait of innovation.
BMW i is a scapegoat for idealist vehicles and a new bargain of
reward mobility focused precisely on sustainability. “BMW i is the
creation motorist for a BMW Group,” explains Klaus Fröhlich, Member
of a Board of Management during BMW AG, Development. “Here, visionary
solutions and future-ready concepts spin existence for a initial time.
But BMW i also acts as a spearhead of creation for a other brands.
The BMW i Vision Dynamics allows us to uncover right now what another
electric BMW competence demeanour like. And BMW has demonstrated a talent for
branch visions into genuine life via a history.”

“I do some-more with less” – a pattern temperament of BMW i.
The outline of a BMW i Vision Dynamics represents a further
expansion of a exemplary BMW proportions; a prolonged wheelbase, flowing
roofline and brief overhangs emanate a simple form packed with
magnificence and dynamism. This conformation is fleshed out by large,
fluently contoured surfaces, a extraneous appearing as if cut from a
singular mould. Aerodynamic mandate conclude a car’s progressive
coming down to a details. Barely manifest joins and a flush
formation of potion into a categorical physique lend a investigate a complicated and
technical altogether impression. The tragedy between vast surfaces and
finely worked sum points to a innovative record during a heart
of a automobile in an understated nonetheless intuitively discernible way, rather
than promotion it in showy fashion. And that is really many in
gripping with a temperament of BMW i: “I do some-more with less”.

i models, is decorated here in a fresh, serve function-led
interpretation and also sharpens a temperament of a car’s flanks.

common pushing knowledge in a interior. This is something that will
benefit serve in stress in a future, in sold as distant as

pushing knowledge is serve extended by a full-length glass
aspect using from a windscreen to a back window. This heightens
a prodigy of room and enables a feeling of expanse and
leisure inside a automobile that belies a energetic extraneous silhouette.
Viewed from a outside, a consecutive roof striking reinforces the
enclosed, complicated feel of a extraneous interjection to seamless transitions
by a front and back end.
Familiar icons during a front benefit new significance.
The prominent, enclosed “kidneys” in a minimalist front finish bring
together a past and a destiny of BMW in some-more than only styling
terms. Where a BMW kidneys have formerly acted as a pitch for the
company’s imagination in expostulate complement development, a BMW i Vision
Dynamics deploys them as declarations of technological know-how.
Indeed, underlying sensors spin a kidneys into an “intelligence
surface”. The headlights likewise mix tradition and a future.

complicated and pared-back interpretation, dual intricate, freestanding LED
light elements on any side of a car’s nose integrating all the
required lighting functions, nonetheless also providing an intensely striking
demeanour evil of BMW.
Poise and energetic allure during a back as well.
Smooth curves beam a car’s plane form when noticed from the
back and supplement intrepidity and power. The tapering of a newcomer cell
creates extended shoulders and a robust presence. The many eye-catching
underline of a back finish are a L-shaped lights. Their slim cut
underscores a energetic potency of a prophesy car on a detailed
level, while during a same time accentuating a far-reaching position on a road.

appealing technical cultured from each angle. As a explorer for
