BMW knows the Ultimate Driving Machine has to become the ultimate time machine.
“What would you do with more time in your life?” asked Klaus Fröhlich, member of the BMW board of management responsible for development, as he brought reporters aboard a custom Boeing 777 Freighter at SFO earlier this year to see what BMWs will become.
Inside is the Vision iNext concept, a premium utility vehicle that “pilots all of the technology that will make the company future-proof for the next decade,” Fröhlich says. That means electric power, a cabin that begs you to sometimes ride, not drive, and technology that goes out of its way to stay out of your way. The Vision iNext made its public debut today at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
