Sleek, techie, and stunningly gorgeous, the BMW Vision Luxury Concept is a self-driving preview of the next BMW 7-Series. As good looking as this concept is though, it’s all the high-tech goodness inside that gets me excited…and at the same time a little sad.
Why sad? Because it seems like most of the features, like detachable tablets and a dedicated touchscreen display for front passengers, are there so those being driven don’t have to interact with the driver. Passengers can give their chauffeurs new directions or GPS coordinates with the swipe of a finger, though the driver isn’t left out of the fun either. They get a dedicated Heads-Up Display that will indicate speed, directions, and even upcoming road hazards.
Using the BMW ConnectedDrive Luxury Concierge service, drivers or passengers can get tickets to an opera or local charity event with minimal effort. The 2+2 interior is a lesson in luxury and “subtractive modeling”, which laid down layers of aluminum, carbon fiber, wood, and leather trim, allowing designers to trim down the design to save weight. Interior designers also paid attention to leg space, ensuring no matter where you sit you have plenty of room to stretch out.
As an added bonus, the two rear detachable tablets can stream media for those longer road trips, keeping the kiddies quiet in pampered luxury. If these features do end up in the next BMW 7-Series, it will mean families can take go on extended journeys without ever having to say a single word to each other.
But you’re here for the pictures, aren’t you? So enough rambling from me, time to soak up some more images of this amazing BMW.
