BMW Vision ConnectedDrive, a Show of Light and Magic

BMW is not planning big for the Geneva Auto Show in March. It will not be bringing countless models to the show, like say Chrysler did at the Chicago Auto Show this week. For BMW, Geneva seems to be not about quantity, but about quality. Earlier today, we told that the German auto maker has created a new version of the Vision concept. It is called Vision ConnectedDrive and it will be the main star of the line-up on the show's floor. And, most of the times, it only takes one car to impress. We must admit, upon seeing the photos today, we were impressed, but not amazed. The amazement came later in the day, when BMW made public the first video showing the concept. Have a look below and see for yourselves. But, before you do, here's what we know about the project so far. The concept is, if you like, the roadster version of the EfficientDynamics Vision which was presented in Frankfurt 2009, but with some major twists. Unlike the EfficientDynamics, which was all about the car and its power train, this one is about the car and the driver. Or, more specifically, the way in which the car and driver interact. Meant as a show and tell platform for future methods of mobile networking, infotainment solutions and comfort, the Vision ConnectedDrive will be a car to look for at Europe's first auto show of the year. autoevolution will be attending the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, so stay tuned for some real up close and personal shots of the vehicles, as well as for first-hand details of the motorized contraptions presented at the event.
