BMW iNext To Be Similar In Size, Shape To Jaguar I-Pace

MAY 21 2017 BY ERIC LOVEDAY 11

The production version of the iNext won’t resemble the concept at all.

That’s basically what BMW is saying now.

BMW iNext Concept Interior

The radical iNext concept (image above) doesn’t provide us with even a hint at what the 2021 production electric car will look like.

BMW simply says that the production iNext will be a “larger” electric vehicle, but beyond that we only have speculation and rumors to go on.

Those rumors, from “sources inside BMW” suggest that the iNext will more or less resemble the Jaguar I-Pace in exterior form/size/style.

BMWBLOG states:

“According to BMW, the upcoming iNEXT will begin production at the Dingolfing plant in 2021 and will be some sort of electric crossover. While BMW just claims that it will be a “larger vehicle” sources inside BMW claim that it’s similar in size and shape to the Jaguar I-Pace.”

Crossovers are hot, so this makes perfect sense.

BMW adds iNext “…will also have a new and future-oriented interior and the most modern networking technologies.”

Not quite sure what that means. Guess we’ll find out in 2021 when iNext debuts in production form. Seems like a bit too long of a window for us though.

Tom Moloughney suggesting on this site a couple of months back that he might replace his i3 with an iPace clearly struck terror in the Bavarian hearts!

It’s definitely still on my hit list!

iCaramba!

The Jaguar i-Pace is the same length and width as the Tesla Model 3 (reveal night version). Now BMW is going to make their next i-Snake model the same size as well. Must be a sweet spot.

The sweet spot is not length, it is the CUV form factor.

Because of its cargo and passenger room, the Jag is usually thought to be aimed at the Model X. Not the Model S much less the Model 3. Don’t be thrown off by the length. To look like a powerful luxury V8, the Model S has a very long front end. That’s why you end up with the frunk. Though the Jag has a frunk, it’s much smaller because the front end doesn’t have so much “design space” up front.

so many “i”‘s lately, can’t even tell what does it stand for

The iNext was over-the-top even for a pure concept car, and less attractive than most. This is hardly unexpected “news”, but still reassuring.

I thought BMW confirmed the X3 was the next pure electric crossover coming soon.

Such a hideous looking concept.

STILL looks like a Bond villain car.
