Today BMW can already look back on 10 years of experience with electromobility in both small and large scale production, with the BMW i models continuously undergoing further development and their technology being used to gradually electrify vehicles of the BMW family. The next step now is to fully integrate the strategic innovation fields of autonomous driving, connectivity, electrification and services (ACES) into the vehicles. In this work, the design provides a structure for the innovation fields and answers the question of how we will experience sheer driving pleasure in the future (D+ACES).

Individual mobility is on the verge of a new era. Topics such as autonomous driving, electrification and connectivity are giving rise to new adventures. The BMW Vision iNEXT is making a bold and positive statement for the future ahead. It drives purely electrically, with a high level of automation and enjoys full connectivity. When travelling in the BMW Vision iNEXT, drivers can choose between taking the controls themselves in “Boost” mode and being driven in “Ease” mode. Thanks to the electric drive, “Boost” mode is highly dynamic, almost silent and emission-free. The interior gains a completely different design and an entirely new status. The BMW Vision iNEXT becomes a place of relaxation, interaction, entertainment or concentration. This makes it increasingly possible to determine how the time during the ride is put to use. From 2021, the series production model will be appearing on the roads as the new technology flagship.

FUEL CONSUMPTION AND CO2 EMISSIONS.

BMW i3 (120 Ah):
Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 0
CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 0
Electric consumption in kWh/100 km (combined): 13.1

 

BMW i3s (120 Ah):
Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 0
CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 0
Electric consumption in kWh/100 km (combined): 14.6–14.0
 

*The published fuel consumption and CO2 emission figures are established according to legislated technical specifications (UNECE Regulation 101/UN Regulation 83 and SANS 20101 standards), which sets out the procedures that are used to measure the CO2 emissions and fuel consumption. The claimed figures are established using specific tests under standardised, carefully controlled conditions and may differ from consumption achieved under real world conditions with the influences of altitude, road surface, geographic conditions, vehicle options, temperature, humidity, tyres size and driving behaviour amongst others. EU Unladen mass refers to a vehicle with standard equipment, with 90% fuel tank fill, including a driver (68 kg) and luggage (7 kg). Optional extras and accessories will generally increase this figure and as a result affect some of the technical figures, in specific fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Please contact your preferred authorised BMW dealer or BMW South Africa (Pty) Ltd. for information on vehicles that are available for sale, and the various specifications and options of vehicles that are available.
