The MINI 3-door, MINI 5-door, MINI Convertible - sports leather steering wheel now standard, digital cockpit as an option
A redesigned sports leather steering wheel with multifunction buttons will in future be part of the standard equipment of all model variants of the MINI 3-door, MINI 5-door and MINI Convertible. A new structure for the keypads optimizes operation of the audio and telephone functions, voice control and driver assistance systems. A particularly high-quality variant of the sports leather steering wheel is part of the John Cooper Works Trim, MINI Yours Trim and MINI Electric Trim equipment packages. It features a nappa leather surface and larger thumb rests. For the first time, steering wheel heating is also available as an optional extra for MINI's small car models. Part of the Connected Media option is a multifunctional instrument display behind the steering wheel. Standard in the MINI Cooper SE, the digital color display in black panel design has a diameter of 5.0 inches and presents all driving-relevant information as well as check-control messages and status displays for the driver assistance systems. In the all-electric MINI, it also serves as a charging status display while connected to the power grid.

The possible uses of game technology and virtual reality applications are manifold in the automotive sector. The BMW Group, the first automotive company together with Epic Games to define and structure an enterprise licence for the industrial use of Unreal Engine, designed a self-developed mixed reality system. This is consistently used and expanded in vehicle development. The BMW iX is the first car that has been developed using the game engine we modified for our purposes. BMW’s use of Unreal Engine is invaluable, especially in the strategic innovation fields. You can very quickly create 3D renderings, for example, that take account of light effects and light reflections on different materials, among other things. But most importantly, it allows the functional and user experience to be brought to life and implemented in real time at a very early development stage. These advantages led to the early development of the technology into a global platform.
