BMW i is our incubator for visionary mobility: It's where the major future technologies come together for the first time. In addition to electromobility, autonomous driving, high-end connectivity and digital services are combined in BMW i to show how we’ll be travelling in the future, before these technologies are implemented in the other BMW Group brands.
