BMW VISION NEXT 100



BMW wants to intensify your feeling of sheer driving pleasure even more in future – with the BMW VISION NEXT 100. A vehicle that is in continuous dialogue with you, the driver. A vehicle that recognises your needs, enhances your perception and adjusts to your individual requirements – seamlessly connecting you with intelligent technologies and materials to strengthen your capabilities more than ever before. A vehicle that empowers you to become the “Ultimate Driver” – the best driver you can possibly be.

The Companion is the perfect assistant for on the move and beyond: unobtrusive, but “always on”, it continuously gets to know its driver better in order to intuitively and subtly support them in every driving situation. Seamlessly connected with the driver and their environment, the Companion is always ready with the right recommendations to meet their personal needs – both during driving and in their daily lives beyond.

The sensory and digital intelligence, permanent service availability and connectivity of the BMW VISION NEXT 100 are bundled together in the Companion. This provides the driver with access to all their approved data from sources like social networks, calendars or news channels and intelligently synchronises them with sensory information from the vehicle’s surroundings.

As a symbol for the intelligence of all systems, the Companion can be found on the front of the instrument panel below the windscreen. Visibly alive to the driver’s needs, it is represented by a small sculpture in the centre of the dashboard. From there, it signals its permanent readiness to receive input and perform services, provides a feeling of security – and reassures the driver of its full range of support.


Driving style, updates and daily routes are automatically input into the vehicle intelligence and fed into the Companion. This ensures that the car gains increasing functional and emotional value for the driver through usage. As it gets to know them better, the Companion becomes an indispensable partner for the driver – one that’s always ready with the right information to optimally support their individual needs.

Whether in active-driving Boost Mode or fully-automated Ease Mode – more than ever before, the Companion turns every journey into a personalised and emotionally-rewarding experience.

The contact-analogue Head-Up Display makes use of the vehicle’s entire windscreen to always provide the driver with the right information at the right time. Real driving situations are supplemented in the contact-analogue display by virtual objects: relevant driving information such as navigation instructions, which are integrated into the surroundings in 3D.

The BMW VISION NEXT 100 provides impressive proof that sheer driving pleasure will remain a highly desirable and emotive experience in the age of automated driving. In Boost Mode, its entire interior and all displays focus on transforming you into the “Ultimate Driver”. Besides sharing the most important vehicle data and navigation instructions, the Head-Up Display also makes recommendations for optimising driving performance: What’s the ideal driving line into the upcoming bend? Which are the best acceleration and braking points? By intelligently connecting driving data with information from the vehicle’s surrounding environment, your perception as a driver is enhanced during Boost Mode – and a completely new kind of personally-tailored driving experience becomes possible.

To hand over to their on-board autopilot, all the driver needs to do is touch the BMW logo in the centre of the steering wheel one more time – and fully-automated driving will be activated in Ease Mode. The Companion now takes over all driving duties and steers you safely and securely on your way.



Following the switch to Ease Mode, the Companion sculpture on the dashboard connects to the car’s windscreen and illuminates blue-white. This acts as a visual contact for other road users and signals that the vehicle is now operating in fully-automated driving mode.
