As we say in Germany: "Whoever has visions should go to the doctor".

Maybe Patrick Le Quément got a new job at BMW and retries a re-invention of the Renault Vel Satis...

WTF's wrong with you BMW ?

Audi, Tesla, Porsche are about to launch compelling low, sporty, sexy e-cars.
And what do we get from the make that made the i3 years ago ?
A self-mockery SUV turd.

BMW is taking the road Peugeot did with cars where each new generation was becoming an exaggeration of the previous (successful) design.
Come on guys, next generation BMWs will have the kidney grill scraping the floor...

And finally, where the feck is the i5 ? So basically they're letting this market to the others. BMWs are now designed for idiots showing up their huge kidney grills

iUncomfortable — Did they take design cues from airport chairs?

Or hitting the roof! I never thought of it this way but ManGGouste is right on. Every new model gets bigger than its predecessor and every grill gets bigger and more pronounced.

My favorite part of this truly hideous design is how this monstrosity has more-flared fenders than the upcoming X3M.

This is how BMW delays the inevitability of electric cars. Make them ugly and hope not too many people buy them. Before you know, they'll be buying other brands

And that Mission E will cost $100+k. Nah, in $35k-$45k, Tesla Model 3 is the king!

The taycan will definitely steal sales from all other models though. The model 3 is not a viable long term product for them at that price since they're taking a loss with each sale. Either a price hike or bankruptcy will happen at their current state.

Most new BMW designs have become embarrassing, including this.
The gigantic grills are hideous. There is not much subtlety to their designs anymore. Shame.

After looking at the pictures, I want to say - next. And I mean next brand....
Why do these concepts should look so unlikable? I like concepts shown by Audi/others when they look like cars people will accept and drive
