The BMW’s new concept car, dubbed the MiniVision Next 100, design claims to focus on combining environmental responsibility and futuristic technology.
The company, to celebrate their centennial birthday, designed three futuristic concept cars that they believe will be the future of motoring. Now, it is claimed BMW and MINI have successfully developed the car that changes colors based on the driver’s mood. According to a leading news channel in the US, Bloomberg, it recently showed off a prototype of the concept car to staff at a special training event at a Munich test track.
The Bloomberg report read, “In the corners, BMW shows off the vehicles it sees as key to its future: a self-driving iNext with a retractable steering wheel; a Rolls-Royce whose roof and sides swing open to allow a comfortable exit; a Mini designed for sharing that changes colors to suit the driver’s mood,” Bloomberg says.
According to BMW’s website description of the MiniVision Next 100, the car “recognizes its users, which allows it to offer personalized mobility.” And based on how the driver is feeling or what he or she wants to look like behind the wheel, “the use of color on the exterior and the projections onto the exterior panels can change” as well.
When the car was first revealed, Andy Warming, Head of the Mini Design Studio, said: “The Mini of the future embodies a totally new form of shared mobility - sustainable, emotional and inspirational.” “The driving experience forms the centre piece and is surrounded by other intelligent services”.
BMW has been producing cars for 100 years, from the iconic Mini series to the luxurious Rolls-Royce.
