For the past 100 years BMW has been a standard of excellence in automotive design and the company is already looking at putting its stamps on the next century – to develop automobiles for “sheer driving pleasure.” While the company is developing a signature centennial model, it is also planning platforms for future models that are highly personalized and fully geared to meet the driver’s every need – “because the very emotional connection between a BMW and its driver is something we want to retain.”
Future BMW models will include intuitive driver and vehicle platforms that will eventually lead to a self-controlled car. One possible mode of operation includes the Boost and Ease modes. In Ease, the vehicle becomes a place of retreat with plenty of space, agreeable lighting and a comfortable atmosphere. In Boost, the driver takes over and benefits from the subtle and intuitive support offered by the vehicle. All this time the car will learn more about the driver and their driving preferences due to a large number of sensors in the control panels.
While the future of BMW looks bright, visit BMW of Peabody to take a look at the present, which includes outstanding models such as the 2016 BMW X1 Sport Utility AWD Xdrive28i, the 2016 BMW 750i xDrive Four-Door Sedan and the new 2016 BMW 228i Convertible.
One current model that will be a harbinger of future engines is the combination electric battery with a gasoline-powered range extender found in the 2016 BMW i3 Hatchback Four-Door with Range Extender.
The future of BMW looks very bright and if you want to keep up with what’s going on, drop by BMW of Peabody and take a test drive of the great models on site.
