Is BMW M Mixed Reality compatible with all BMW M vehicles?
The great thing about the technology developed by BMW M itself is that it works independently of the model's drive. We use the existing, in-vehicle systems whose signal processing is standardised in all BMW and BMW M cars. They are so precise that we don't need any additional sensors. So we can easily use a BMW M2 or BMW M4 with an inline six-cylinder engine, or a BMW i5 M60 with an all-electric powertrain. For our first test vehicle and the launch of BMW M Mixed Reality at the end of 2022, the BMW M2 was chosen because its basic design already has a sporty, playful character. It was simply a great fit for this theme.
Which VR worlds do drivers experience in BMW M Mixed Reality?
Currently, drivers can experience two different worlds: An urban-looking city circuit world and one where you drive on an alien planet. But that's just the beginning. I can very well imagine that there will soon be a multitude of other worlds and possibilities to experience BMW M Mixed Reality.
Is it possible to try out BMW M Mixed Reality for yourself?
Yes, from mid-September customers will be able to book BWM M Mixed Reality for the first time as a training offer at the BMW M Driving Experience. That will also be a highlight for me, by the way, because I'm really looking forward to people's feedback.
