What will surprise the smart windows in the BMW iNext electro-crossover?February 1, 2020
The engineers of the Bavarian brand will equip the new electric crossover with smart windows that can tint on their own or, conversely, fade.
A new report from the foreign edition of BMWBlog hints that the brand’s future technology flagship, the all-electric BMW iNext crossover, will boast automatic dimming windows. In addition to ensuring the privacy of all people in the cabin, the technology will also help reduce the internal temperature in the cabin.
The report said that BMW can use intelligent glass control – this technology was originally invented by Continental, a German manufacturer of automotive components.
The technology uses special films built into the glass, which can change the degree of its transparency, providing a wide range of shade levels depending on the needs of the user. Not only can this help with privacy, but it can also help reduce the need for air conditioning, which is good for the environment.
BMW can take a step forward in window technology, using sensors to determine the position of the sun, and then make the car pre-tint the necessary glass to keep it cool inside. That would be a great feature in the electric crossover, which BMW called the company’s pioneer in automotive innovation, which will receive level 3 semi-autonomous driving technology and an all-electric motor.
The BMW iNext is expected to arrive at car dealerships in the 2021 model year. However, we do not know when BMW will show the car to the public. He can make his debut at the end of this year or even at the beginning of 2021.
