BMW will unveil a new Vision concept at the 2023 CES show with Neue Klasse technology.

BMW is set to show a new Vision concept car the upcoming CES show in Las Vegas next year.
There’s no official announcement for the upcoming January reveal yet, but BMW’s recent quarterly report confirms the concept car will appear.
The model will be based on BMW’s Neue Klasse platform for future electric cars. Details are thin, but BMW says the car will be a ‘Vision Vehicle’, s o we can expect it to emulate previous BMW Vision concepts. This includes concepts such as the Vision NEXT 100, i Vision Circular and the M Vision NEXT.
The new Vision concept will most likely showcase BMW’s new battery technology – announced in September this year. BMW calls it ‘round cell’ and the technology has been optimised for the Neue Klasse platform. The German firm claims a 20 per cent improvement in energy density, a 30 per cent increase in range and a 30 per cent boost to charging speed. The improved performance doesn’t come at any extra expense either, with BMW saying the cost of the battery will actually be reduced by up to 50 per cent.
With new battery technology on board, the upcoming concept car could offer the greatest range of any BMW model – a title currently held by the BMW iX and its 626km range. This could potentially mean a maximum range of over 805km. As for the first production BMW to utilise the Neue Klasse platform, that honour will go to the all-electric successor to the 3 Series.
BMW says it expects over half of its global sales to come from BEVs, with the Neue Klasse platform accounting for a large chunk of those. Six factories will get investment to produce the new round cell battery and these will be spread across Europe, China and the Americas to keep production and delivery costs down.
