Because of the lightweight frame structure made of carbon ďŹ bre reinforced plastic and the position of the engine unit above the rear axle, it is possible to put the vehicle in a vertical parking position in order to lean it against a wall with minimum space requirements.

ALL THIS IS WEAR.

CONCEPT-TRUCK 2030 The concept 2030 is a long-distance semitrailer truck, which reacts appropriately to the changing needs of modern goods trafďŹ c. In order to improve the aerodynamics and the fuel consumption the vehicle has a completely new driverâ€˜s cab.

DESIGN DEVELOPMENT The aerodynamic silhouette and the retractable air bafďŹ‚e on top both underline the unity of truck and trailer. Side windows are integrated in the clean side surfaces of the cabin.Two air-shield handles lead the airstream on both sides of the truck.They also improve the access to the cabin via the integrated footsteps in the air intakes.
V-formation reduces air drag
Changing distance forms a uniﬁed body
On highways the distance between truck and trailer is minimized to reduce air turbulences. Only when cooling of the engine is necessary the ﬂaps on both sides of the cabin open inwards.

BMW I-BIKE How can the product range of the BMW i-series be expanded? The answer is an e-bike for the inner-city use in a mega-city, where huge trafďŹ c jams during rush hour are common. BMW thus helps to improve the quality of life in these areas.
April - May 2014
In order to convince the modern businessman to go by bike, the design should convey a sporty character and unrestricted mobility, just like a mountain bike.
The shape refers to the current design language of the new BMW i-series. The bike with its ďŹ‚uent silhouette proudly presents that it is electrically powered.
The frame is fully made of carbon and serves as weather protection for the technical package on the inside: batteries and the electric engine, which is located directly on the drive axle of the pedals, are fully integrated.
