At today's Annual General Meeting of BMW AG, the group's Chairman of the Board of Harald Krüger, unveiled an initial design concept for the BMW iNEXT. The iNext, discussed several times by BMW over the previous year, will be a pure electric vehicle that will serve as a introduction to what all new BMW's will eventually be like.
The company previously hinted at a range of up to 435 miles, presumably based on the generous NEDC test cycle.
BMW is providing an early glimpse of its flagship electric model scheduled to be launched in 2021 once production will kick off at the Dingolfing factory in Germany.
No doubt, as the reveal of the new iNEXT Concept nears, we'll get something more concrete.

Linked Company Nears Deal to Bail Out Jared Kushner Property
The Canadian controlled property owner has executed similar developments in NY and other cities around the world, the source said. The deal would have included $ 500 million from the sheikh's investment firm, contingent on investment from others.
There's not much to tell from this shadowy image, but the vehicle appears to take after the BMW i Vision Dynamics concept, which previews the design of future electric cars from the brand.
"For the first time, we are combining all key technologies for future mobility", Krueger said. BMW hasn't revealed much else about the vehicle other than it will be developed in parallel with the i4, another all-electric sedan which like many forthcoming BMW products, would certainly also have semi-autonomous driving capability. The iNext crossover is being developed in parallel with the i4 electric saloon concept we saw at Frankfurt previous year.
The automaker has also confirmed the iNext will offer Level 3 self-driving capability in certain highway situations. The first will be its pure electric powertrain, which is expected to center on a 120 kWh battery pack using what BMW calls its fifth-generation battery tech. That iNext too, will sit on a modular platform - BMW even says "if that sounds a bit like Lego, that's roughly the idea".
