BMW previews autonomous iNext ahead of concept reveal later this year

BMW Teases iNext EV

In this teaser image, BMW is giving us a glimpse at the design of the iNext electric vehicle due in 2021. The company claims that the new flagship would incorporate all major strategic areas of innovation in a road-ready vehicle. We've heard that it would be some sort of SUV.

Kr├╝ger said: "The iNext project is our building kit for the future".

It is precisely known that new electric vehicle will get all the most advanced technology, including systems Autonomous (semi-Autonomous) control, advanced security system and the latest infotainment technology.

A battery of that capacity should yield a total electric range to the tune of 400 miles, perhaps more.

And we highly doubt that the BMW iNEXT, the auto that the Bavarians are hoping will help shape the brand's future, will be a wagon.

Krueger also said the iNext will offer Level 3 self-driving capabilities, which will let the driver cede control to the auto under certain conditions as long as they stand ready (or at least sit ready) to retake control within seconds if any warnings sound. Level 3 means the vehicle will be able to be driven hands-free under certain highway conditions. Instead it will come with Level 3 capability that demands the driver monitor progress and be ready to takeover, if required. Additionally, BMW will release an electric auto for its British Mini brand in 2019 and an electric BMW "X3" by 2020. That said, the sketch does confirm that the iNext will be in the form of a crossover, which is something BMW has not previously acknowledged.

The iNext is scheduled to enter production at BMW's Dingolfing factory in 2021.

Previously NV was informed that Audi has carried out final tests of its first electric crossover called the E-Tron. An i4 sedan has also been confirmed.
