Behind The Scenes: Production Of The Electric iNext SUV

BMW shared behind the scene's coverage of production of the iNext SUV.

The full gallery can be seen by following this link. The biggest take away are new methods and technologies used in producing these EV's, something never implemented by BMW.

Once assembled, the body-in-white undergoes detailed checks by laser radar, eliminating the need to place measurement points manually, which has been the default way until now. The automated measurement technology quickly identifies individual surface characteristics, dramatically shortening the time required for the whole checking process.

BMW also uses computer tomography to test new materials and bonding techniques on prototypes after they have been built; four robots scan the vehicle using X-rays. The data from the scan is used to create a multilayered 3D image, enabling engineers to examine all the components in minute detail without having to dismantle the vehicle.
