Future cars – level 2

Future cars – level 2

23-06-2016 15:00

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).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
