Listen to the BMW Vision M NEXT
Electric cars are not known for their soundscape. The BMW Vision M NEXT, on the other hand, is an acoustic and emotional experience. Not least because legendary Hollywood film composer Hans Zimmer and BMW sound designer Renzo Vitale designed the boost sound especially for this concept vehicle. Find out what the BMW Vision M NEXT sounds like when the Power PHEV accelerates in Boost+ Mode.

Sound design by Hans Zimmer for the BMW Vision M NEXT
Hans Zimmer is known worldwide for his film music. He has composed countless soundtracks for Hollywood and has won numerous awards. Now Hans Zimmer has composed the sound for the BMW Vision M NEXT together with Renzo Vitale, acoustic engineer and sound designer at the BMW Group.
The film composer explains what connects him to BMW: “Sound has always been a key element in my emotional landscape even before I knew I was going to be making a living as a musician and composer. And the sound of a car has special resonance. My friends and I played a game in which we tried to guess the make and model of every passing vehicle without looking – and I could usually win.
I grew up with BMWs in my family and, as a child lying in bed at night in the dark, the sound of my parents’ car returning home spoke not only of power and beauty but also of safety and comfort and a sense of reassurance that all was well with the world.
The advent of the virtually silent electric vehicle gives me a minimalist sonic canvas upon which I am trying to create something subtly beautiful – a sonic experience which can convey the sense of confidence, well-being, joy and excitement I relished all those years ago, along with the thrill of owning and driving a technological and scientific miracle. I am very proud to be part of the team shaping the sound of the next generation of vehicles for the world to hear.”

Boost Mode and Ease Mode
The latest vision vehicles by BMW look ahead to the future of autonomous driving. With the BMW Vision iNEXT and BMW Vision M NEXT vision vehicles, BMW is showcasing two versions of that future: in Boost Mode, the driver of the BMW Vision M NEXT does the driving with maximum support from the driver assistance systems, whereas the BMW Vision iNEXT in Ease Mode takes care of the driving autonomously, while the driver can use the time to do other things.
With the BMW Vision M NEXT, the focus is clearly on driving fun where the user is in complete control. The driver can select the driving setting on the steering wheel, like in a Formula E race car. This includes Boost+ Mode, which gives the driver extra engine power at the push of a button and demonstrates once again just how sporty the BMW Vision M NEXT is.
