Future cars – level 2
The BMW Group marked its centenary by looking ahead to its next 100 years. It unveiled two electric vision cars, a Rolls-Royce and a MINI, at an event in London.
The Rolls-Royce will be able to drive itself and communicate with passengers. It will be emission free and available in 2040. MINI’s future car will also be self-driving.
Carmakers are hoping for shorter charging times, more charging points, and greater ranges will make people buy the new clean cars.
Difficult words: centenary (the hundredth anniversary – birthday), unveil (to show people something for the first time), charge (make battery full of energy), range (the kilometres that you can travel with the batteries).
