Munich. A new era has begun. That is the key message of the new BMW film released today through all online channels (https://youtu.be/RMMQxoWN0R8). For the first time, the film “A NEW ERA” shows all four BMW Group Vision Vehicles side by side. One year after the company’s centenary, the world’s leading premium manufacturer of automobiles and motorcycles is revisiting its “THE NEXT 100 YEARS” campaign.

“A NEW ERA” is the second film that showcases the BMW Group at a corporate level with its strong brands, BMW, MINI, Rolls-Royce and BMW Motorrad.

Showing the four Vision Vehicles together for the first time, the online film “A NEW ERA” ties in with “THE NEXT 100 YEARS”, which was the motto of the BMW Group centenary last year. Future orientation and ground-breaking innovations have always formed the company’s identity – driven by an exceptional team of people who share and are inspired by a fascination for mobility.

 

For the anniversary, a TV spot was created that for the first time portrayed the company’s active role in shaping the future, its willingness to learn and to change, its passion for technological innovation and responsibility towards society. The theme of the TV spot, “Together, we’re creating history. The history of tomorrow”, underlined this forward-looking approach.

The online film “A NEW ERA” takes this message and refines it: In this film, the future has already begun. In answer to the previous TV spot, “A NEW ERA” opens up a view of the future and brings the previously described vision of the BMW Group to life.

Mobility is the freedom always to be able to get where you want to go in life. The BMW, MINI, Rolls-Royce and BMW Motorrad Vision Vehicles symbolise this freedom by providing their own brand-specific interpretation of mobility. Central themes are autonomous driving, individuality, safety through innovation and the vehicle as an active companion and advisor in everyday situations. The film also highlights other areas of innovation, such as electro-mobility, shared mobility and connectivity.

“‘THE NEXT 100 YEARS’ was much more than just a celebration of our company’s anniversary. Our philosophy of constantly looking to the future and setting high standards of innovation is what drives the day-to-day work of BMW Group associates,” commented Bill Mc Andrews, head of Communications Strategy, Corporate Communications and Market Communications. “In the film ‘A NEW ERA’, we are underscoring this idea and adapting it to our corporate strategy in the coming months and years.”

“A NEW ERA” will be widely integrated into the BMW Group’s digital communications, including its own platforms and social media channels. The film was shot on locations in Los Angeles, USA, and Bangkok, Thailand. Interone is the creative agency responsible.

“A NEW ERA” will also be integrated into the BMW Group Future Exhibition in the BMW Welt Double Cone.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
