BMW showed the interior of the electric iNEXT crossoverMay 29, 2019
Judging by the image that was published by the press service of the Bavarian brand, the iNEXT electric crossover will have one giant screen in the cabin. This decision replaced the individual displays for the instrument cluster and infotainment system.
Most likely, the serial version of the previously shown conceptual crossover iNext will be called the BMW i5. According to representatives of the brand, this new product will be a real technological miracle. Despite the fact that the electric car will not be released until 2021, the Germans have already launched an advertising campaign, giving us a first look at the new items salon, where the giant display is located.
Not just a display, but a curved one that integrates the dashboard and infotainment system. Yes, yes, one big screen will be installed, rather than two separate displays, as in modern premium cars.
According to Domagoj Duquek, head of BMW Design, the huge screen will be driver-oriented and made from high-quality materials. In a published press release, it is mentioned that the one-section curved display is “almost freely suspended from the dashboard,” so it will create the illusion that it floats on the dashboard.
Interestingly, BMW mentions that, from the passenger’s point of view, the display will not receive the slightest connection to the dashboard. Inspired by the latest consumer technology, a hefty screen will rely on thin magnesium brackets that will hold it in place and have non-reflective glass. To ensure a smooth view from all sides, the screen will not have a bulky cover for shading.
The electric crossover will be made in Germany at the BMW plant in Dingolfing. He will receive a fifth-generation electric drive system. In the case of iNext or i5, the range will exceed 600 kilometers.
