BMW will launch its i NEXT vehicle in 2021, offering autonomous driving, digital connectivity, and an intelligent lightweight design.
Harald Kruger, BMW’s board chairman, said they are growing in high-margin segments – with a focus on their “i” vehicles.
“Since 2013, revolution in automotive engineering has been all about the electric BMW i3,” said Kruger.
“We have sold more than 50,000 i vehicles to date. But BMW i is more than just a car. BMW i attracts new customers to BMW.”
Kruger said BMW is expanding its i line-up, and in a few weeks it will offer an i3 with 50% more battery capacity.
In 2018, BMW will launch its i8 Roadster, which will be followed by the BMW i NEXT in 2021.
“The BMW i NEXT is our new innovation driver, with autonomous driving, digital connectivity, and an intelligent lightweight design.”
He said the BMW i NEXT will also feature a new interior, and will bring the next generation of electro-mobility to the road.
