BMW Announces New Colour Changing Paint Technology At CES 2022

There’s a new colour changing paint technology announced by BMW during its CES 2022 event presentation. This next-gen tech relies heavily on “E-Link” the electronic paper technology that e-readers use for their online print.

BMW debuted this new technology on its concept iX car, available primarily in black grey, and white colours. The company describes this new development as an “advanced research and design project.”

Different charges influence this colour paint technology, “A white surface reflects a lot more sunlight than a black one,” the company says in regards to its efficiency.

“By implication, heating of the vehicle and passenger compartment as a result of strong sunlight and high outside temperatures can be reduced by changing the exterior to a light colour.”

BMW also announced its second electric car under the ‘M’ branding scheme, the iX M60. This electric vehicle is BMW’s latest addition to the Motorsport family.

Under the electric car hood is a massive 111.5kWh battery that has about 106.3kWh usability. This delivers around 811 lb-ft of torque. The car features two electric motors and can drive up to 280 miles of range on a single charge.

Its latest colour paint changing technology is a new aspect of exterior styling customers will appreciate. How well this holds up is not known but we can expect to see it ship in its future cars.
