There is a new kid in town. It's none other than The BMW Vision Next 100. They are calling it the BMW VN 100 on the grounds that it showcases the future of the automotive industry. Their hope is the new design will create a personal connection between the driver and the vehicle. This is tricky considering it is a driver less car. No, seriously. Remember that BMW is no stranger to making a great car, and this one is no exception. Their goal is to revolutionize the way we drive.
Let us talk about the exterior. The exterior looks something out of a Sci-Fi movie. They are calling it 'Alive Geometry'. The 'Alive Geometry' is visible in the form of a movable wheelhouse covers for optimal aerodynamics, as I mentioned earlier. These wheelhouses are produced in a 4D printing process. It is said to have set a new standard in kinematics, as well as design and performance, because it follows the steering movement. The interior boasts an analog display system. This analog system is equipped with movable red triangles. The display will give the driver suggestions for a better driving experience.
The coupe debuted in Munich on March 7, exactly 100 years after BMW was founded. Though there is no actual release date for the VN 100, seeing and interacting with the car firsthand shows just what the future of driving holds. I definitely agree with their motto - ‘The Ultimate Driving Machine'. Although there are lots of debate about driverless cars, I must say that the future looks promising and it has certainly restored my faith in the automotive industry.
