THE SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME: MINI VISION NEXT 100.
Inventive thinking is built into MINI’s DNA. But what if we could tap into something deeper? What if tomorrow’s MINI provided a unique, personalised experience combined with shared ownership? To give you a glimpse of the possibilities that lie ahead, we’ve imagined what the future of urban mobility might look like.
Imagine a MINI that transformed itself to suit personal preferences. Imagine a MINI that changed its exterior to suit the driver…a MINI that could be shared so every MINI is your MINI.
The MINI VISION NEXT 100 pays homage to MINI’s iconic design by positioning the wheels in the far corners of the vision car, maximising handling and feel.
The car will sport a stunning, transparent front-end, giving the driver an unprecedented sense of freedom and speed. The design will also allow projections to be beamed in view, providing an even more dynamic driving experience.
The VISION’s wheels are a stunning design feature in their own right. Inspired by an intricate clock design, the wheels rotate to create a beautiful ombro-cinema effect.
YOU AT THE HEART
The VISION NEXT 100 will take MINI personalisation to a new level. Parts of the car’s exterior surface will transform to suit you and the car will beam a personalised greeting as you approach it.
The Cooperizer – a translucent circular instrument in the centre of the car is the heart and mind of the MINI VISION NEXT 100. It will communicate with the driver through dynamic changes of colour and adapt the driving mood based on feedback from the driver. It’ll also give you the option of experiencing someone else’s personal driving mode – this could be a friend’s, a family member’s or your favourite celebrity’s.
The car’s steering wheel and pedals slide from left to right to create an ultra-flexible driving experience. This means you can position yourself just about anywhere in the cabin. And, between journeys, the car will drive autonomously to a service hub, where it’s cleaned and recharged before zipping off to meet another driver.
