n case you missed it, BMW has yet again showing off its vision of what the future may holds for the brand’s automobiles. Though not as futuristic and audacious as the BMW Vision Next 100 we saw a few years ago, the BMW Vision M Next, as it is called, is bold in its own right and much to our surprise, it is actually a hybrid of sort rather than an all-electric drive vehicle as most people would envisioned.
Power is derived from a Power PHEV drive system that offers the choice of electric all-wheel drive and pure rear-wheel drive, with either all-electric propulsion or power from a turbocharged 4-pod petrol unit. The projected output is 600 horses which will enable the future ride to rocket to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 3 seconds and sending it on its way to a top speed of 186 mph (300 km/h).
Moreover, it has this thing called BOOST+ mode that will put extra power on the tap at the push of a button. Though BMW did not mention how much ‘boost’ it will get. As far as all-electric range goes, it will do a modest 62 miles (100 kilometers).
But really, those are really what you need and want to know about this beautiful ride. The rest of the press release are mostly text trying to get you to buy in to its design. Like, how it is has Laser Wire lighting technology headlights in which glass fibers coated with phosphorous are used to produce headlight elements with a new, super slim and extremely precise form, or how it has facial recognition technology that would allow the car to unlock automatically as the driver approaches. TBH, it does not need to. The design already sold itself.
Anywho, instead of regurgitating the marketing talks (since it is, as far as we know, a concept), we shall let the mages do the talking. After which you can learn more about the car HERE.
