BMW Vision iNEXT Concept Vehicle Revealed


After a recent online leak of the Vision iNEXT concept vehicle, BMW has officially revealed the next generation electric vehicle described as the company's "building blocks for the future." The futuristic concept is designed around fundamental changes to the driving experience that are afforded by autonomous driving systems. In other words, with autonomous driving clearly on the horizon, BMW has focused their efforts to enhancing the personal space of the vehicle "as a mobile environment that enhances quality of life."


The iNEXT is designed to be a fully autonomous vehicle, but driver's can take control at any time if they desire, so those who enjoy the experience of piloting their vehicle have the ability to do so. The vehicle sports a crossover design with several next-gen features including a 3-part technology based system, an enormous sunroof, and an interior that resembles the dichotomy of a futuristic take on retro styling. The technology system is divided into three distinct pieces; Intelligent Personal Assistant (BMW's version of SIRI), Intelligent Materials (technologically adaptive interior) and Intelligent Beam (next-gen interior projection system).

Although the BMW Vision iNEXT is still in the concept stages of production, a 2021 release is currently scheduled.

MINI Driver Nani Roma Takes 2nd Place at 2019 Dakar Rally

MINI driver Nani Roma placed at an impressive 2nd in the 2019 Dakar Rally, and a total of 5 MINI vehicles placed within the top 10 which is not a bad feat for a line of vehicles not typically associated with rally races. In case you're wondering, Toyota driver Nasser Al-Attiyah took the honors of 1st place. 


Roma was quick to thank the entire squad of drivers, engineers, mechanics and all of the other team members who worked diligently to support all of the MINI teams. Its safe to assume we will see MINI at the 2020 Dakar Rally, and with a bit of luck, and a continuation of the skill we've seen thus far, Roma could potentially earn a 1st place victory. 

We would like to congratulate Nani Roma and the entire team of MINI specialists which were involved in the 2019 Dakar Rally, and although the celebration is fresh in our minds, we wish them much success at next year's event.
