On the question of whether BMW to apply the same radical design for the next-generation versions of its traditionally more conservative models such as the 5-series, the Home responded that it is important that each model had its own character.
“Each machine its positioning. In the early stages of development, we sit down and prepare a product — to discuss its design and engineering and define the nature and positioning. Some models are more extraordinary, they are more bold,” he says.
Although unexpected grille BMW Vision iNext 2018 was scrapped after negative feedback from customers, there is no doubt that experiments with the design of the company will continue in the future.
