BMW Launches Neue Klasse X Super Smart SUV Concept

BMW has introduced the Neue Klasse X, providing a sneak peek into the upcoming sports activity vehicle poised to follow in the footsteps of the iX3. Positioned as a pioneer for a fresh platform, the German automaker highlights four core principles for the Neue Klasse: electric power, digital connectivity, sustainable practices, and the driving thrill emblematic of BMW.

Design plays a pivotal role in the Neue Klasse X, as anticipated for a concept spearheading innovation. Noteworthy features include heightened ground clearance, a generously spacious interior, an elongated wheelbase, and abbreviated overhangs. Inside, an airy ambiance prevails, courtesy of expansive windows and a panoramic glass roof.

At the forefront, vertically aligned LED units flank the iconic BMW kidney grilles, while rear lights extend horizontally toward the center, echoing the familiar BMW L shape. The aesthetic is rounded off by flush glass surfaces and a striking “Coral Silver” paint finish, encapsulating the vision of the Neue Klasse X.

Within the cabin, BMW introduces “Verdana,” a surface material derived entirely from plants, minerals, and devoid of petroleum. Notably, maritime plastics sourced from discarded fishing nets constitute 30% of the interior’s injection-molded parts, exemplifying a commitment to sustainable materials.

Technological innovations abound, with a redesigned multifunction steering wheel, touch-controlled central display, BMW Panoramic Vision featuring BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant, and a 3D head-up display. The central display seamlessly integrates into the instrument panel, offering both front passengers access to a plethora of infotainment features.

In terms of performance, the Neue Klasse X harnesses BMW’s sixth-gen eDrive technology, featuring newly developed round lithium-ion cells boasting a 20% higher volumetric energy density compared to previous prismatic cells.

Adopting an 800-volt architecture results in a 30% enhancement in charging speed, facilitating a remarkable 300km of range within ten minutes of charging.

BMW’s latest creation also incorporates advanced super-brain computing systems, which revolutionize handling and dynamics with up to ten times more processing power than previous iterations. These super-brains represent a quantum leap in automated driving capabilities, according to BMW.

Furthermore, the Neue Klasse X achieves a 20% reduction in drag compared to similar models in its class. Innovations in tire design and a bespoke brake system tailored for electric vehicles contribute to an overall efficiency improvement of up to 25%.

Set to serve as a blueprint for future iX3 iterations, BMW plans to commence production of the Neue Klasse X at its Debrecen, Hungary plant in 2025.
