The iNEXT isn't going to hit the road until 2021 - and will be built in Germany - but BMW are planning a proper iNEXT Concept later this year, and the design sketch tease is meant to point us in the right direction. As well as publishing this rather unrevealing teaser image, BMW has also confirmed the vehicle itself will be unveiled in all its electrified glory later this year. At its Annual General Meeting, BMW CEO Harald Krüger presented an initial design concept for the company's new technology flagship.
