BMW has showcased its Vision Neue Klasse X SAV (Sports Activity Vehicle) and the production will commence in 2025 in Debrecen, Hungary.

The BMW Vision Neue Klasse X has been revealed with fascinating details. Note that the Neue Klasse X represents the future of electric SUVs from the German carmaker. On the other hand, the Vision Neue Klasse unveiled at the IAA 2023 was the concept sedan for future models. Essentially, the Neue Klasse X borrows the ‘X’ nomenclature from BMW’s regular lineup which represents SUVs or SAVs, as BMW likes to call them. The technological features on the new concept are revolutionary.

BMW Vision Neue Klasse X – Key Highlights

Exterior Styling

BMW has gone back to the 1960s to take inspiration from the first-ever Neue Klasse range of vehicles. Back then, it saved the company from disaster. It is calling back that name to mark yet another inflexion point in its current journey to enter the future. Nothing could remind us more of the 1960s than the iconic grille, or lack thereof, on the Vision Neue Klasse X. The typical ‘Kidney Grille’ is a 3D sculpture which is vertically aligned with backlit contours.

When the driver approaches, the grille and headlamps create a unique lighting effect. At the rear, the Vision Neue Klasse X bears the familiar L-shaped LED taillamp pattern. On this occasion, it carries the 3D elements which are individually controlled for light intensity. The body color features a cool trick which can form a transparent or reflective surface, depending on the viewing angle.

The cabin is powered by incredible technology on the back of four totally new super brains: high-performance computers. The main attraction has to be the BMW Panoramic Vision which projects key information across the full width of the windscreen above the dashboard. Complimenting this is the BMW 3D Head-Up Display and BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant for better human-car interaction in comparison to Alexa Support. There is also a Central Display which the driver and passenger can access for all cabin controls and entertainment.
