BMW presents several world premieres at IAA MOBILITY
At the IAA MOBILITY in Munich, both at the IAA Summit on the exhibition grounds and at the IAA Open Space on Max-Joseph-Platz in the city center, BMW is presenting various world premieres and innovations of the BMW, MINI and BMW Motorrad brands, visionary vehicles and concepts for the individual mobility of tomorrow.
World premiere of BMW Vision New Class and BMWi7 Protection at the IAA Summit
Right at the start of IAA MOBILITY on September 5, the new BMW Vision New Class will celebrate its world premiere in Hall A2 at the IAA Summit, and will later also be on display in the IAA Open Space. In the future, the New Class will combine innovations in the fields of electrification, digitalization and circularity, and will be distinguished above all by its design, operating concept, efficiency and sustainability.
The BMW i7 Protection will also be unveiled at the IAA Summit. The vehicle is the world's first certified all-electric special protection sedan with a self-supporting body structure made of armored steel. Armor plating on the underbody and roof, as well as armored windows, are designed to protect vulnerable individuals from firearm or explosive attack.
World premieres of the all-electric MINI Cooper and MINI Countryman at the IAA Open Space
BMW's MINI brand is also presenting new world premieres at IAA MOBILITY. The new all-electric MINI Cooper and the new all-electric MINI Countryman will be on display in the IAA Open Space. An all-electric model innovation will also be the focus of BMW Motorrad's presentation at Max-Joseph-Platz in the IAA Open Space. The BMW CE 02 will also be shown here as an e-polo.
All other new models of all BMW brands with electrified drive systems, digital innovations and resource-saving production will also be presented in the IAA Open Space, including the hybrid models of the new BMW 5 Series, the BMW iX1, the BMW i4, the BMW i5, the BMW iX and the BMW i7.
Also on display at IAA MOBILITY: the BMW iX5 Hydrogen.
One of the key topics for BMW at IAA MOBILITY is the use of hydrogen as an energy source for current and future vehicles. For example, BMW is currently developing and testing a Sports Activity Vehicle with a hydrogen fuel cell drive. The BMW iX5 Hydrogen will be presented at IAA MOBILITY. Its two 700 bar carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) tanks can hold 6 kilograms of gaseous hydrogen, which can be refueled within three to four minutes. In the fuel cell system, this triggers a chemical reaction between the hydrogen and the oxygen in the ambient air, which is used to generate electricity for the electric motor.
