BMW Group is a leader in innovation, constantly pushing the limits of technology and creativity to realize its vision of the future of mobility.
With Connected Drive, an ever-growing package of connectivity features, BMW Group extends the capabilities of BMW and MINI models, transforming them from vehicles into mobile offices, smart assistants and even remote-controlled devices.
With Connected Drive, owners can use their mobile phone as a virtual key and share virtual keys with friends and family. They can also lock and unlock the vehicle remotely, making possible, for example, a courier delivery in the car. Users also benefit from a wealth of in-car productivity apps, and can better plan their next journey by sending their next destination to the navigation system, find parking spaces and charging stations, share a live trip status and get real time traffic information. Electric models, such as MINI Electric and the upcoming BMW iX3 have even more features available through the dedicated app.
And this is only the beginning. We see the brands BMW and MINI both as platforms that the greatest minds in tech can build upon, and also as platforms that give tech entrepreneurs a voice to realize their potential.
