LAS VEGAS -- BMW previewed a roadster version of its i8 plug-in hybrid sports car with the Vision Future Interaction concept car.
Unveiling the concept at the Consumer Electronics Show here on Tuesday, BMW development chief Klaus Froehlich said: "I think BMW should build it as soon as possible."
BMW said in a statement that the concept provides an outlook on the networked cockpit and the user interface of the future.
Features include autonomous driving control innovations and advanced function control with gestures, touch-sensitive surfaces and voice control. The driver can exit the car which will then park itself.
The driver can get information through a head-up display, an instrument cluster with three-dimensional display and 21-inch panorama display that extends across the top of the dashboard.
