The i5 is expected to be a showcase for BMW’s cutting-edge technology, with the ninth-generation Vertical Dynamics Management system already announced for the electric vehicle. It adjusts the stiffness of the adaptive suspension, and uses data from current driving conditions to calculate the damping force.
In addition, the electric “five” will receive the Driving Assistant Professional complex with Highway Assistant. It operates at speeds up to 130 kilometers per hour, keeps a distance from the cars in front, sees the lane boundaries and can independently change lanes to the next one. Another know-how will be eye control – a lane change will occur if the driver looks in the side mirror. This technology will become part of the said autopilot.
