BMW is all geared up to expand its range of products and at the 96th Annual General Meeting of BMW AG, Harald Kruger, Chairman of the Board of Management announced its plan to launch a new model called the iNext, which is an all-electric autonomous car. As the name suggests, it will be an addition to the automajor’s i sub-brand that currently includes the i3 and the i8 hybrid.

BMW has not revealed any details, yet, but Krueger told shareholders the iNext will be the company’s “new innovation driver, with autonomous driving, digital connectivity, intelligent lightweight design, a totally new interior and ultimately bringing the next generation of electro-mobility to the road.”

In March 2016, BMW unveiled the Vision Next 100 futuristic self-driving concept car to commemorate its 100th year anniversary, depicting the automaker's ideas for how automobiles will evolve as autonomous vehicles. The concept features an impressive innovation of alive Geometry in the form of movable wheelhouse covers for optimal aerodynamics, digital intelligence, which provides the driver with subtle, intuitive assistance in every situation and butterfly doors along with the ‘Boost Mode’, in which one can experience even more intense driving pleasure in the future.

Though, BMW isn’t the only car maker, working over autonomous technology. Recently, Mercedes-Benz has also loaded the all-new E-Class with advanced semi-autonomous technology and brands like Audi, Volvo and Ford are also now heavily investing self-driving research and development.
