The new generation BMW iDrive will first be offered alongside the BMW iX and BMW i4 models. Transforming the infotainment system as a radical idea in the automotive industry 20 years ago for the first time, BMW iDrive has now reached its eighth generation. The BMW Curved Screen, in which the new generation infotainment system is integrated, combines a 12.3-inch information display and a 14.9-inch control screen.
Dialogue with personal assistant
The next generation BMW iDrive will bring additional features for the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant. While users can define a name of their choice for the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant, then they can also use it as a command. The assistant also has a new “face” of light spheres of different sizes and brightness levels. This “face” has a reliable and attractive aura that can express different emotions and moods in a non-verbal, human-like way. The new “My Modes” feature provides an all-encompassing user experience tailored to the driver’s personal preferences. My “Modes” can perceive many senses, from sight to hearing and touch. It can be controlled very easily by voice command or by using a special button on the center console.
