Innovations like autonomous driving make it possible to completely reimagine the interior of the vehicle – like with the study Vision BMW iNEXT. The self-driving car will become a new form of environment.
Crossing the finish line together: The insights from Formula E racing flow directly back into the development of BMW series vehicles like the BMW i3 and future BMW i models.
