TED.

BMW i has partnered with TED to create Next Visionaries, a global initiative that seeks to engage innovators, change-makers, dreamers and future thinkers to reimagine the future of mobility – to explore how dreams and visions can transform the way we move in 30, 50, 200 years from today.

A total of more than 180 visions were entered for the Next Visionaries contest within the timeframe for submission, which was limited to a few weeks. The most promising contributions were posted for discussion in edited form at www.nextvisionaries.com. A selection committee made up of experts from BMW i and TED then chose six entrants for the final round in Frankfurt. They were assigned experienced mentors – all TED speakers themselves – who helped them prepare for their pitches in the run-up to the IAA Cars 2017 show.

The finalists in the Next Visionaries contest pitched their ideas live to an invited audience of 500 guests from the creative scene, business community and media. The jury went on to crown Sandra Phillips as the competition winner thanks to her vision of car sharing, which pays particular attention to social and extra-urban factors. “Like all the other finalists, Sandra Phillips has thought outside the box. Her concept is already quite advanced and also considers the aspect of social change,” says Hildegard Wortmann, Senior Vice President Brand BMW and member of the Next Visionaries jury, providing some background on the decision

The winner’s prize – and the next step for Sandra Phillips – is the green light to prepare for the TED stage in New York, where she presented her idea in a full-length TED Talk in November 2017.

INNOVATIONS FOR THE FUTURE. BMW i IN THE FORMULA E CHAMPIONSHIP.

FIA FORMULA E CHAMPIONSHIP. #ELECTRICITEMENT – in the world’s biggest cities.
Hong Kong, Mexico City, Paris, Berlin, New York, Montreal: Formula E is electrifying some of the biggest cities on the planet. The innovative racing series for single-seater, electric racing cars is held at spectacular street circuits around the world.


BMW recognised the potential of the FIA Formula E Championship in its early stages – and has thrilled fans with its range of BMW i Support Car vehicles at race weekends ever since. The Qualcomm BMW i8 Safety Car is the most spectacular of the cars provided by BMW i as “Official Vehicle Partner”.


The driving force behind Andretti Autosport is a star of American motor racing: Michael Andretti. MS Amlin Andretti is also one of the founding members of Formula E. BMW adds its expertise to support the American team. This race team commitment will be extended further as season 4 gets underway, before BMW enters a works team in the FIA Formula E Championship as of season 5.
 

SOHO HOUSE.

Since October 2014, BMW i and Soho House Group (SHG) have been co-creating experiences focusing on contemporary art, innovation and design. As Soho House Group’s global automotive partner, BMW i will provide BMW i3 vehicles for driving experiences for members and guests at many of its sites and cultural events. Soho House and BMW i will also collaborate on an international arts programme throughout Soho House locations in Europe and the US.

 

The Soho House story began in 1995 in Greek Street, London. Two decades further down the line, the portfolio now contains numerous clubs, hotels, restaurants and spas across the UK, continental Europe, the US and Canada.

  • United Kingdom

    London is of course the leading metropolis in England. And, unsurprisingly, also boasts the highest concentration of Soho House venues. Just round the corner from the Soho House in Greek Street is the Dean Street Townhouse, a 39-bedroom hotel, with Shoreditch House slightly further east. Go west for Little House, Mayfair’s best kept restaurant, bar and lounge, as well as Electric House in Notting Hill and High Road House, a quiet outpost in Chiswick. All venues offer outstanding food and drink as well as a wealth of sporting and relaxation opportunities.

    Country-lovers are also catered for, of course. Just a two-hour drive from the capital is Babington House, set in 18 acres of rural Somerset and home to 32 individually designed bedrooms, a 24-hour restaurant and the flagship Cowshed Spa.

  • Continental Europe

    The first location in continental Europe was Berlin, where, in the vibrant Mitte district, Soho House Berlin opened its doors in May 2010. Occupying eight floors, the House has an expansive club floor, rooftop pool and bar, fully equipped gym, screening room and Cowshed Spa with Hammam.

    The European tour is continuing in southern climes, too: Soho Houses will be opening in Istanbul (February 2015) and Barcelona (early 2016).

  • North America

    The year 2003 saw the beginning of the North American presence − in a period warehouse building in the Meatpacking District. Soho House New York covers six floors, offering 30 spacious bedrooms, a restaurant, bar, 44-seat cinema and rooftop pool as well as a Cowshed Spa.

    The next address was none other than Sunset Boulevard, where Soho House West Hollywood opened in an iconic office building in spring 2010. This was followed a few months later by Soho Beach House in Miami, which offers South American glamour, two pools and its own beach club.

    Two years later, just across the “green border”, saw the opening of Soho House Toronto, which launched with an array of events to celebrate the Toronto International Film Festival.

    In August 2014 – true to the motto “Save the biggest till last” −, SHG opened its largest property to date: Soho House Chicago, in a 10,000 square metre former belt factory.

    The values of fuel consumptions, CO2 emissions and energy consumptions shown were determined according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version applicable at the time of type approval. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers optional equipment and the different size of wheels and tires available on the selected model.

    The values of the vehicles labeled with (3), are already based on the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to ensure the comparison between the vehicles. [With respect to these vehicles, for vehicle related taxes or other duties based (at least inter alia) on CO2-emissions the CO2 values may differ to the values stated here.]

    The CO2 efficiency specifications are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the European Regulation in its current version applicable. The values shown are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle for the classification.

    For further information about the official fuel consumption and the specific CO2 emission of new passenger cars can be taken out of the „handbook of fuel consumption, the CO2 emission and power consumption of new passenger cars“, which is available at all selling points and at https://www.dat.de/angebote/verlagsprodukte/leitfaden-kraftstoffverbrauch.html.
