BMW has come up with something rather special to celebrate its 100th anniversary with, even though it has the most unimaginative name ever. The thing is called BMW Vision Next 100 concept and, as the name clearly suggests, it gives us a glimpse of the cars of the future.

In essence a four-door i8 with some fancier clothes, BMW Vision Next 100 is indeed a viable candidate for a car of the future precisely because it looks (fairly) like a car of today. It has an almost five-meter length and can accommodate four adults in comfort. And although it looks like something out of a Sci-Fi movie, the car is still recognizable as a BMW.

What makes BMW Vision Next 100 futuristic is mainly the materials used in its build. The body is made of carbon fiber and plastic and, in some places, from leftover residues during carbon fiber processing. The same goes for the interior which is made largely from recycled material. Another highlight would be the “Alive Geometry” design elements used in various parts of the car as a way of interacting with the car and delivering information. 

Boasting a drag co efficient of 0.18, the sleek BMW Vision Next 100 boasts “Boost” and “Ease” driving modes which enable driver- or vehicle-controlled operation and “Companion” which is an intelligent digital partner connects driver and car. This car is one of four concepts to be revealed over the course of 2016 as part of the centenary celebration.
