centenary underneath a sign THE NEXT 100 YEARS. Throughout a history,
a company’s picture has been tangible by a destiny concentration and pioneering
movement – all done probable by a unusual group of employees, who
share a mindfulness for mobility that is constituent to all a lives.


“At a BMW Group, we are always on a query for a best solution.
It’s partial of a DNA,” pronounced Harald Krüger, Chairman of a Board of
Management of BMW AG, during a Centenary Event in Munich on Monday.
“It’s also a suggestion of a collaborations, a repeated thesis that
permeates a corporate and care culture.”


Three qualities in sole set a BMW Group apart: a capacity
to learn and adapt, technological innovation, and a clarity of
shortcoming toward society. “We have demonstrated on many occasions
via a story that we are means of training quick and taking
confidant steps,” Krüger said.


Against this background, a BMW Group’s centenary celebrations are
set to concentration essentially on what lies forward and try how individual
mobility competence rise over a entrance decades.


To answer this question, a BMW Group has generated a futuristic
unfolding with a transparent vision: reward mobility by a BMW Group will
be totally effortless, comprehensively accessible and tailored to
any customer’s sole preferences. At a moment, a universe is
on a verge of realising programmed driving; in a not-too-distant
destiny a infancy of cars will substantially be totally self-driving
and ride a streets of cities inhabited by distant some-more people than today.


In a future, one thing will be in ever shorter supply: time. But
connectivity will spin increasingly commonplace, and technologies
will learn to learn from people. “Future mobility will bond every
area of people’s lives. And that’s where we see new opportunities for
reward mobility,” Krüger added.


The BMW Group has now done a prophesy for a destiny a existence – with
a BMW VISION NEXT 100. This car combines
coupé-type sportiness with a energetic magnificence of a sedan – but

customised car that is ideally tailored to fit a driver’s
changing needs.


Driver-vehicle interactions are managed by Alive Geometry; Boost and
Ease modes offer a choice of driver-controlled or vehicle-controlled
operations, and a interior of a car changes to fit a mode
of travel. In Boost, a whole car focuses on a driver,
charity a support indispensable to maximize a pushing knowledge – for
instance by indicating a ideal pushing line, steering indicate and
speed. Ease mode sees a interior transform: a steering circle and
centre console retract; a headrests spin to a side, and a seats
and doorway trim combine to form a singular section so that a motorist and
front-seat newcomer can spin towards any other.


“If, as a designer, we are means to suppose something, there’s a good
possibility it could one day spin reality,” pronounced Adrian outpost Hooydonk,
Head of BMW Group Design. “So a design with a BMW VISION NEXT
100 was to rise a destiny unfolding that people would rivet with.”


The BMW Vision Vehicle will make a universe entrance during a Centenary
Event in a Munich Olympic Hall on 7 Mar 2016 – accurately one hundred
years after a association that is now famous as BMW AG was initial entered
into a blurb register. About 2,000 guest from industry,
politics, research, multitude and a media will be present, as will
comparison dealers, suppliers and employees. A multi-media experience
will beam them by a story of a association to this latest
interpretation of tomorrow’s reward mobility, culminating in the
phenomenon of a Vision Vehicle.

joining of some-more than 122,000 employees in 140 countries around the
world. Almost all of them will be means to follow a Centenary Event
in a Olympic Hall live as partial of a activities function during their
site. In many markets, a live-stream will be accompanied by local
centenary celebrations, and one sole prominence in Munich will be
a live promote during a Allianz Arena football stadium, for more
than 30,000 employees formed in and around a Munich site.

pier of call will be Los Angeles, USA, where BMW Motorrad will supplement its

structure of a BMW Welt will open to a open in spring. A further
muster will be mounted by a BMW Museum, where a temporary
centenary arrangement entitled “100 Masterpieces” will benefaction milestones
