ROLLS-ROYCE’s Vision NEXT 100 concept is here to remind us the driven still need cars in the future.
Built for BMW’s centenary, it’s a crystal ball into the brand’s thinking for an autonomous, electric future.
With its 500kW dual-motor drivetrain controlled completely by Eleanor – the name given to its Skynet-like AI system – it disposes of chauffeurs and treats the cabin as an exclusive two-person retreat.
There’s a silk sofa inside, Macassar wood, and fine deep wool carpet. In other words, at 5.9m long and 1.6m high, it’s a presidential suite rolling on 28-inch wheels.
While mostly all made up, the company hints its electric drivetrain might soon reach its road cars.
