BMW teased new picture of it’s iNext SUV, and it’s just a steering wheel

Perhaps slightly ironic, BMW released a teaser photo of their self-driving electric SUV the iNext by showing a photo of the steering wheel. And it’s a nice wheel, but I’d rather see what the outside looks like without camouflage.

BMW designed the wheel to help drivers know which way it’s pointed, quickly, for when they need to take over from the automated system. With a flatter, less-round bottom section, there’s more space for sliding in and out of the cockpit, and the larger top half of the wheel makes seeing the gauges easier.

The iNext is a large scale electric SUV set to debut in 2022 – and it’s official nameplate could be the i5 or i7.
