Conceived from the outset for purely electric mobility, the iX sees BMW redefining the successful Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) concept. With its completely newly developed, precise and minimalist design, the BMW iX is the first representative of a trailblazing generation of cars poised to redefine the driving experience, the feeling of space inside and the relationship between vehicles and those on board. The BMW iX harnesses the latest innovations in the fields of electrification, automated driving and connectivity to deliver a mobility experience which puts people more than ever at its heart. To this end, its design has been developed from the inside out. The BMW iX has been created to provide quality of life and wellbeing for drivers and passengers. The clear and minimalist design of its exterior showcases a new form of mobility geared squarely to the needs of the vehicle’s occupants. Its interior offers those on board innovative options for using the time during a journey – and enjoying relaxation, safety, security, and a new form of luxury in the process.
The new Mercedes-Benz C-Class - sporty accents through driver-centeredness
The instrument panel is divided into an upper and lower area: a wing profile with new, flattened round nozzles that are reminiscent of the engine nacelles of an aircraft, and an opulent decorative panel. This flows continuously from the center console into the instrument panel. Their driver orientation contributes to the sportiness: the instrument panel and central display are inclined slightly towards it by six degrees. The driver's area is marked by a high-resolution LCD screen. It stands free and appears to float in front of the wing profile and the decorative surface. This sets the driver's display apart from traditional cockpits with classic round instruments. Buyers can choose between a 10.25-inch (26.0 cm) and 12.3-inch (31.2 cm) version. The paradigm shift towards digitality is also clear with the central display: The vehicle functions can be controlled via the high-quality touchscreen. Its portrait format offers significant advantages, especially for navigation. The touchscreen also seems to float above the decorative surface. Like the instrument panel, the screen is also slightly oriented towards the driver. The central display has a screen diagonal of 9.5 inches (24.1 cm) as standard. A larger version with 11.9 inches or 30.2 cm is optionally available
