A view to the future.
Constantly evolving to stay a decisive step ahead has always formed the basis for the BMW Group’s thinking and actions as a company. In the context of its centenary, the company is looking two or three decades into the future and considering today the mobility concepts of tomorrow.
To find ground-breaking answers, the BMW Group is developing a clear vision of the future – a holistic blueprint for a future world of mobility focused on people and their individual mobility needs. The following six statements provide a glimpse of the vision of “THE NEXT 100 YEARS”.
Mobility is becoming versatile.
New mobility products and services will open up even more possibilities for getting from A to B. At the BMW Group, we believe it is important to understand all facets of mobility so that we can reinvent and permanently improve it.
Connectivity is becoming second nature.
Everything will be connected in the future. But will that improve our quality of life? At the BMW Group, we firmly believe that progress must first and foremost serve mankind. That is why we are seizing the opportunities of digitalisation and converting data into digital intelligence to permanently improve our lives.
Mobility is becoming tailor-made.
Mobility will become more diverse and more flexible. But at the BMW Group, we believe that mobility only makes sense if every person can get where they want to go in the way that they want. That is why we are making our products and services even more individual and more personal.
Technology is becoming human.
Technologies are becoming smarter and more complex by the day. Will humans be able to keep up? At the BMW Group, we realised early on that innovations are only useful if they are intuitive for people to use. That is why machines need to learn from humans and adapt accordingly.
Energy is becoming emission-free.
The climate is changing, resources becoming scarcer and more energy is coming from renewable sources. You wonder: How can we continue to improve our environmental footprint? The BMW Group has a vision: of environmentally-friendly vehicles from emission-free factories.
Responsibility is becoming diverse.
More and more people are moving from the city to the country. Home can be anywhere around the world. We are living longer, but staying younger. So, how can companies help create a world worth living in? Mobility expands our horizon and opens borders. The BMW Group wants to contribute even more in the future – to improve the places we live and society.
