First Sketch of BMW's iNext EV Released

BMW confirms fully autonomous i for 2021

A new electric vehicle is under work by BMW and they have given us its first glimpse.

In a statement issued by BMW, Krüger said of the concept: "The iNEXT project is our building kit for the future". It will benefit the entire company and all of our brands.

Underpinning the iNext will be the BMW Group's CLAR modular platform designed for large cars, and production will take place at the automaker's main plant located close to its Munich headquarters.

School bus taking kids on field trip collides with truck
Clare's Denville Hospital, according to Communications Director Patty Montgomery. "They were young kids", he said. Multiple ambulances were on the scene and police said Route 80 was closed in both directions.

It will be one of 12 electric cars that BMW and its Mini brand plan to launch by 2025, starting with the Mini Hardtop next year and followed by the BMW iX3 in 2020 and the iNext in 2021, and finally the i4 sedan, based on BMW's Vision Dynamics concept in 2022. BMW hasn't revealed much else about the vehicle other than it will be developed in parallel with the i4, another all-electric sedan which like many forthcoming BMW products, would certainly also have semi-autonomous driving capability. However, what we're looking at is not the iNext, but a concept due to be unveiled later this year as the Vision Vehicle to serve as a preview for the road-going model. "For the first time, we are combining all key technologies for future mobility in one vehicle", he told the AGM's attendees. The iNext crossover is being developed in parallel with the i4 electric saloon concept we saw at Frankfurt past year.

BMW in April said the iNext will also be capable of Level 4 self-driving, though this feature may not be offered to the public initially.

The iNext, he said, would be fully electric, powered by fifth-generation battery technology giving it a range of about 700 kilometres, fully connected and would also offer a new level of automated driving. So expect the BMW iNEXT to be similar.
