BMW Shows New Images Of iNEXT Prototype

BMW releases new images from behind the scenes of the iNEXT prototype production before its 2021 launch.

BMW shared a glimpse of what’s going on behind the scenes of its Pilot Plant, in preparation of the upcoming iNEXT Prototype. The plant, located in the Research & Innovation Centre (FIZ), is getting ready for the production and is currently in a testing phase.

“Preparing a fully electric vehicle for series production is an exciting but challenging task. By the time of the official start of production, we will have built as many as 100 prototypes of the BMW iNEXT,” said Udo Hänle, head of Production Integration and Pilot Plant. “Until then, the Pilot Plant will use a range of new innovations to streamline and speed up our processes even further. We are also already preparing our first production associates from Plant Dingolfing to work on the new product.”

The BMW iNEXT, which will be launched in 2021, will be the first model from the German brand’s NUMBER ONE > NEXT corporate strategy. As the picture shows, the iNEXT will be similar in size as the BMW X5.

The all-electric SUV will be powered by the newest, fifth-generation electric drive train with a range of more than 600 kilometres (WLTP), according to the manufacturer. All without forgetting that the iNEXT will be designed for Level 3 automated driving.

While waiting for the BMW iNEXT to enter production, the carmaker wants to take a peek at its current state with this photo gallery.
