Future cars – level 1

23-06-2016 15:00

The BMW Group celebrates its 100th anniversary. It shows people two cars, a Rolls-Royce and a MINI.

These cars are the cars of the future. You cannot buy them now. You can buy them in 2040.

The cars are electric. They have batteries. They are good for the planet. They are self-driving. You can just sit and relax. You tell the car where to go.

Difficult words: anniversary (a reminder of the day since something happened), self-driving (a self-driving car does not need a driver).

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