BMW’s brand new i Vision Dee can change colours

BMW have rolled out a fresh concept car which can change colour as 2023 kicks off. Revealed at the world’s biggest tech conference in Las Vegas on Wednesday, the BMW i Vision Dee is the automaker’s latest vehicle which gives complete creative freedom to the driver. 

The car is a mid-size sedan with an exterior which makes use of E Ink to rapidly change between or combine 32 colours. 

The vehicle will be made available in BMW’s Neue Klasse EV models as of the year 2025, but this is not the first time BMW played around with colour changing technology.

Last year’s CES unveiled the iX Flow, which can change from black to white using the same technology. However, the new release has full-colour deployment of E Ink tech on the outside.

Split into 240 individually controlled segments, the car gives the user the chance to create a patchwork or checkered car pattern if they so wish. 

And if you want to get even more futurist, the car has an updated Heads-Up Display, a high tech, customisable digital, mixed reality panel that sits across the whole windscreen.

Government to buy 250 electric vehicles for public service

It has been revealed via a newly published tender that 250 electric vehicles will be bought by the government for public services. 

The ambitious project will decrease the already existing fleet and aim at updating the vehicles in use to reduce the carbon footprint of vehicles in use. 

Permanent secretary Tony Sultana explained that the initiative will come into play after a phase of detailed study. The project also aims at incentivising car sharing as introduced into the governmental departments. 

This initiative will save the country 185 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year when accompanied with the installation of 2,000 metres squared of photovoltaic panels in public spaces. 

Through this tender, it is estimated that the rate of electric vehicles in the public service fleet will increase from 2021’s 7% to 40%. The project is worth around €10 million and are financed by EU funds. 

This was revealed after Prime Minister Robert Abela confirmed that there is only one electric car registered for public use in the office of the prime minister.
