BMW has prepared several concept vehicles for the IAA 2021, which is being held in Munich for the first time. One of the exhibits is called BMW I Vision Circular, and it’s a concept vehicle that has never been shown before. Let us explain its main idea and design to you.
It comes with 100% recyclable materials including the battery. The designers of BMW had several mottos when they designed this exhibit, and they are RE: THINK, RE: DUCE, RE: USE and RE: CYCLE.
The designers reinterpreted classic BMW icons for the front end and transformed the characteristic grille into a digital surface that merges with the headlights. BMW believes digital design could end geometric variations in lights and bumpers to reduce the number of materials and tools needed to build a car.
Seen from the side, the new concept car presents itself with a new BMW silhouette. As you can see, this is a single-volume (minivan), forward cab, and the proportions are unlike anything the German brand has shown so far.
At this point, we would like to point out that this is only a concept car and it might not be turned into a production vehicle. In addition, some of the lines and ideas presented might never reach a production BMW.
On the other hand, let’s read a little between the lines and highlight a few aspects of this concept car. First of all, it still has a steering wheel and pedals. This means that it is meant to be driven, which BMW i designers still consider to be a thing in 2040. Second, the interior has been completely redesigned, but it still has a conventional layout with two seats up front. and two seats in the front. the rear, while the exterior design looks aggressive.
