The German car manufacturer BMW Group presents the vision of the future electric cars of the X series – BMW Vision Neue Klasse X. The concern announced that the first serial models of the new generation will start production as early as 2025. They will have a longer driving distance, and in 10 minutes they can be charged for a trip of up to 300 km. In addition, the manufacturer promises that the two-way charging technology will already work in future models.

The Neue Klasse represents the full range of models that customers want today and in the future, from the sporty sedan to the modern SAV family. The latest version of the vision car “BMW Vision Neue Klasse X” not only symbolizes an active lifestyle, efficient dynamics and self-confidence, but also perfectly illustrates how the models of the X series will look like in the future”, says Oliver Zipse, chairman of the board of BMW AG.

Four “super brains”

The new BMW-developed software package integrated into the cars will ensure smooth driving of the Neue Klasse cars, and two of the four on-board computers will take the driving experience to a new level.

“Future BMW cars will have four completely new “superbrains” – high-performance computers that will be able to process the necessary information together. We created the first “superbrain” system in-house. The integrated transmission and driving dynamics will use up to ten times more powerful computer. In the future, we will combine the four main control units into one high-performance computer. The result will ensure more dynamic performance of the cars, greater accuracy, efficiency and driving pleasure,” says Frank Weber, the member of the board of BMW AG responsible for development.

Driving experience redefined

An improved steering wheel with multi-function buttons, a central screen with intuitive touch controls, the intelligent voice-controlled BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant and the new BMW Panoramic Vision front screen will help to control the car simply and intuitively. The important thing is that the latter will allow you to present the most important information across the entire width of the windshield. It will be supplemented with an improved BMW 3D Head-Up Display screen in production Neue Klasse models.

It is worth noting that the central screen integrated into the dashboard in BMW Vision Neue Klasse X cars will also provide a better passenger experience. Its position will ensure that both front passengers can optimally use all the infotainment functions found in it.

The uniqueness of the BMW Vision Neue Klasse X will be emphasized by the Verdana plant-based, mineral and petroleum-free surface material used in the lower part of the door linings and the center console. Other elements of the car and their construction methods made from recycled monomaterials will make it easier to disassemble its components and improve their recycling possibilities.

Faster electric car charging

In Neue Klasse cars, a new level of efficiency will be ensured by the sixth generation eDrive technology. In addition to improved electronic drive units, it also uses new round lithium-ion battery cells with a volumetric energy density of more than 20 percent. larger than previously used prismatic elements.

The car uses an 800-volt system up to 30 percent. will increase the charging speed – cars can be charged for a 300-kilometer trip in ten minutes. BMW promises that the sixth-generation “eDrive” will also provide up to 30 percent. greater driving distance. Greater aerodynamics will also contribute to this – wind resistance has been reduced by 20% in BMW Vision Neue Klasse X cars. compared to a similar model of the current line. And the new tire designs and braking system for fully electric vehicles help up to 25 percent. increase the overall efficiency of the car.

Unlimited two-way charging options

Another feature highly anticipated by electric car enthusiasts in the BMW Neue Klasse is the ability to use the car’s electric battery as a source of electricity. They will be equipped with two-way charging technology, that is, the ability to both receive and supply electricity. This will give BMW customers the opportunity to contribute even more actively to the preservation of nature.

The Vehicle to Home function will allow the energy stored in the vehicle’s high-voltage battery to be used at home, and the Vehicle to Grid function to return it to the grid. Access to the energy market will be provided by E.ON, a company partnering with BMW. This feature will be available in various markets only after the necessary regulatory measures are adopted. The third function “Vehicle to Load” will allow the energy stored in the vehicle to be used for external electrical equipment. This means that Neue Klasse cars will be able to be used as mobile power banks, for example to charge e-bikes. bicycle or powering electrical equipment while camping.
