MyDrive | BMW Group – Quite literally it is ready, set, go for BMW as they look into the future of transport and autonomous driving for humans in the next 100 years.

With BMW’s 100th year anniversary, it could be said that it takes a great mind set to think about the next 100 years although, BMW have been hard at work to stay at the forefront of instinctive technology and they plan on staying there.

No one quite knows what our future might look like in 100 years yet BMW are already developing future products that we may use to communicate and travel.

However, any products developed today may look and operate differently by then but just like our modern day technology, it will adapt over time.

“At the BMW Group, we are always on a quest for the best solution. Its part of our DNA,” said Harald Krüger, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG, at the Centenary Event in Munich on Monday. “It’s also the spirit of our collaborations, a recurring theme that permeates our corporate and leadership culture.”

The world today is on the verge of significant change especially with the way we commute on our suburban streets, roads and highways with autonomous driving now literally around the corner.

BMW has taken this thought process and developed it further calling it, BMW Vision. Think of this concept as autonomous driving infused with transport that can change in an instant to suit the needs of the driver.

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

“At the BMW Group, we are always on a quest for the best solution. Its part of our DNA,” said Harald Krüger, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG, at the Centenary Event in Munich on Monday. “It’s also the spirit of our collaborations, a recurring theme that permeates our corporate and leadership culture.”

Three qualities in particular set the BMW Group apart: the capacity to learn and adapt technological innovation, and a sense of responsibility toward society. “We have demonstrated on many occasions throughout our history that we are capable of learning fast and taking bold steps,” Krüger said.

The BMW Vision vehicle will depart on a symbolic World Tour entitled “Iconic Impulses.” which will stop in China, the UK and the USA. After its Asian premiere in Beijing, it will travel to London, where the Vision Vehicles of the BMW Group’s British brands – MINI and Rolls-Royce – will be unveiled. Its last port of call will be Los Angeles, USA, where BMW Motorrad will add its Vision Vehicle to the collection to complete the quartet of brands.

It is an exciting time for the automotive industry and BMW. Technology is moving at such a pace it’s now a case of blink and you might just miss it.
