BMW unveiled the i Vision DEE concept at CES 2023, a sedan that is "at the core of the BMW brand". The concept car features a full-width heads-up display, color-changing panels, and a Mixed Reality Slider in the interior. It also has a full-windscreen head-up display, allowing for more control over the digital cluster in front of occupants. The goal of this concept was to reduce geometry and create an emotional connection between car and driver through digital technology. Arnold Schwarzenegger made an appearance on stage at BMW's CES 2023 presentation to discuss the concept.
