Mini also has its say on the future car. Cars on the “ownership”, no protection and autonomous driving
At the event Future Experience, during which the BMW Group has shown the world such as Rolls-Royce pictures their car here in the next one hundred years, Mini has also told her about it.
The Mini Next Vision 100 Concept is, in fact, the vision of the historic British brand, the evolution of what is, in effect, one of the most iconic cars ever made.
In 2116 Mini imagines to be no more – and not only – a company that builds cars, but rather, a mobility company, which will allow its customers to enjoy their products, by virtue of their membership of a community. The motto of tomorrow will be, as well, “every Mini is my Mini” since each Mini will be available to every customer Mini, at all times. The cars, thanks to artificial intelligence and autonomous driving systems, will take care to travel by community members to be at their service, adapting, at the same time, both in appearance and handling characteristics and on-board connectivity, to defaults by each of them.
But not enough: the Next Vision Mini 100 will again be an ultra compact car, with the ability to eliminate the protective structures against collisions, totally unnecessary, according to the British engineers, due to the drastic reduction of collision risks guaranteed by autonomous driving, from here to a century. How to reconcile all this with the possibility, always guaranteed, to use a manual driving mode it is not, however, given know. What do you think? Is this the future you want? You have at least 100 years to let us know.
