BMW says iNEXT flagship electric car due for 2021 launch

BMW has some interesting plans to disrupt the automotive space, and these include the release of what it calls a flagship electric car — the iNEXT. And while information on the car is still limited, it does show a lot of promise ahead of its projected launch and release some five years from now.

The EV will be first unveiled sometime in 2021, according to the German automaker, and will come with the moniker “iNEXT.” This was mentioned almost as an aside, as BMW Chief Executive Harald Kruger presided this week over a shareholder meeting, discussing the company’s product roadmap, but mainly focusing on its plans for further electrifying its lineup.

“In 2018, we will launch a BMW i8 Roadster,” said Kruger, explaining the roadmap to investors. “This will be followed in 2021 by the BMW iNEXT, our new innovation driver, with autonomous driving, digital connectivity, intelligent lightweight design, a totally new interior and ultimately bringing the next generation of electro-mobility to the road.”

The iNEXT, as it seems, is part of BMW’s broader plans to push electrification and self-driving technology, and while details on the autonomous car are still largely unknown, we can expect it to be a feature-rich vehicle. Kruger calls it the “new innovation driver” for the automaker, and that could mean a wealth of tech features, and probably a self-driving car like nothing anyone had seen before. And we can also expect more peculiarities in terms of the car’s cabin design – that’s a good thing, however, and something that has become sort of a calling card for BMW in recent months.

Even then, it could be a long, arduous trek for BMW in its goals to further electrify its roster of vehicles, and to further develop autonomous driving tech. “It will be a while before these cars reach series maturity — also because the proper legal framework for customers and manufacturers has not yet been decided,” Kruger concluded, hinting at the challenges BMW may be facing going forward.
