What do you do when you're celebrating your 100th birthday? Why, you look ahead to the next 100 years.
Welcome to the future of BMW.
This is the BMW Vision Next 100 concept.
It's a vision for what BMW thinks will drive the next 100 years of transportation.
It is surprisingly traditional in a lot of regards.
Four wheels, four doors...
...and four seats.
But, the interior is a bit more radical.
For example, the steering wheel disappears into the dashboard.
But, it extends when the driver wishes to control the car himself.
The styling is highlighted by these moving triangles.
The car is said to have been "4D printed" -- that is to say, created of components that come straight out of 3D printers.
The interior dynamically configures based on driving mode.
The profile is long and low.
Familiar, yet distinctive.
There's lots of glass, so visibility should be good.
And the traditional kidney grilles still appear on the front.
Doors open high and wide.
Seats shift and move depending on the driving mode, as well.
Front passengers, for example, will have their seats tilted inward.
Seats are simple, but starkly designed.
The entire windshield serves as a heads-up display.
Is this the future of motoring? We'll just have to wait and see.
Kindness pays. Literally.
