The car will become the flagship and will compete with the Audi e-tron. You can already imagine in detail how the new product will look.

BMW first introduced the iNEXT as a concept car at the Los Angeles Auto Show last year. Recently, new information about the car began to appear. On exclusive images you can see how the car will look. Compared with the concept, the production car will receive a smaller overall grille, as well as classic rear doors. Most likely, the serial version will have to abandon the cameras on the wings in favor of standard rear-view mirrors.

However, much of the version presented at the Los Angeles Auto Show can be transferred to mass production. We are talking primarily about the thin LED headlights of the car and a folding panoramic windshield.

BMW has not yet shared information about the power and type of power plant. It is only known that iNEXT will be the first BMW car on a platform that allows the use of gasoline, hybrid, diesel and all-electric engines. Nevertheless, there is almost no doubt that the car will become completely electric. It is assumed that a battery of 120 kW / h will be used, which will ensure a range of 580 km. In a recently published teaser, emphasis was placed on the unusual shape of the steering wheel. The developers claim that the square shape of the steering wheel will make the steering more comfortable and help you quickly and conveniently switch between different driving modes. Engineers plan to additionally install an optical fiber on the steering wheel, which will inform the driver about the available autonomous operating modes, as well as warn about the need to completely take control of the machine.
