After its Q3 2022 quarterly report, Nicolas Peter announced that BMW will debut a new Vision Car at the upcoming CES 2023. The company will reach the next major milestone on its route to the Neue Klasse in January 2023. It will exhibit a visionary car at CES in Las Vegas to further its digital capabilities. Peter said that the future of the automaker is “electric, circular, and digital.”
This is currently the only information known about futuristic vehicles. Its size and design are currently unknown, but it will most likely be powered by electricity. According to the BMW Blog, the new concept car will give a glimpse into the brand’s future, primarily in terms of design but also from a technical standpoint, as it transitions to a new design language and aesthetic.
After receiving scathing criticism in previous years, this new Vision Car might be the Munich design team’s ticket to salvation. The first vehicles to employ this new design language were the second-generation iX3 and a 3 Series based on the Neue Klasse platform.
The sixth generation of BMW lithium-ion cells, which will debut in 2025 alongside the electrified 3 Series sedan made at the new Debrecen factory, will have a higher energy density than the prismatic cells now in use.
BMW’s electric car lineup will ultimately include models ranging from high-volume to special high-performance variations. During this time, the company’s internal combustion engine-powered vehicles will continue to be based on different platforms. Oliver Zipse, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG, will deliver a pre-show keynote speech at CES 2023, ideally demonstrating BMW’s future vision.
