BMW, a German automotive luxury brand, is all set to uncloak the Vision Neue Klasse concept, which will give us a sneak peek at the platform for its future electric vehicles. However, ahead of this global unveiling, the prominent car manufacturer has released a teaser of the concept, revealing the light-up grille. In a brief official video teaser, a peek of the front fascia could be seen, showing a signature kidney-shaped grille that protruded from the frame. Deep styling lines run from the hood through the grille to the bumper, with a flat, embossed roundel in between. Considering this latest teaser, the design ethos appears to be pretty close to the January-debuted iVision Dee concept. However, more exact details will be disclosed closer to the global debut that will take place on September 2.
