This year’s Beijing Auto Show marked the debut of the BMW Vision Neue Klasse concept car, providing a glimpse of the brand’s future definition of personal luxury travel. Through these next-generation models, BMW aims to showcase three core areas of automotive industry transformation: electrification, sustainability, and full digitization. Oliver Zipse, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG, emphasized, “With the Neue Klasse, we are carrying BMW into the future in design, technology, and philosophy. It begins next year when we will release the NEUE KLASSE onto the market—not with niche models, but starting in our most successful, highest-volume segments. It reinforces BMW’s sportiness and luxury label in an extremely modern and innovative manner, defining the future of intelligent luxury personal mobility.”
