18 amazing 2016 BMW X1 A Discussion With Sydneyborn Designer Calvin Luk

the Old New BMW X1 Looks Pretty Good Right Well As Actually Designed By An Australian Born And Bred 30 Year Old His Name Is Calvin Lachlan Based In Munich With BMW For Seven Years. I'm Gonna Go And Find Him And Find Out All About This Card.

So, Calvin Tell Me About How Long Did It Take The Started Like How Long Did You Start We Started Probably The Sketch Phase Around 2011 And We Submitted A Proposals From The Entire Design Team On What We Believe Next One Should Be There. So, This 2011 Turn Now Launched It's Not Like Finish For You. So, Has It Been A Big Change Between That Initial Sort Of Concept Then What Its Ended Up In The End Not Quite There's The Initial Character And The Initial Impulse And Feeling Has Remained Very True To The Initial Key Sketches What Would Be Three Words That Would Sort Of Capture Like The Emotive Essence And The Feeling That You're Trying To You Were Trying To Capture With The Car.

So, It's Sporty It's Powerful And It Has A Lot Of Presence And Those Are The Three Key Elements To This Vehicle, But Why The X1 For You Because You Have The Opportunity To Submit Designs For Yes Different Cars At BMW We Have A Very Carefully Planned Out Time Schedule For Our Vehicles This Just Came Along At The Right Time Right Place Right Time And. I Wanted To Jump On It The X1 It Is A Really Good Looking Car What Feature You Most Proud Of. I'm Really Proud Of The Kidney Grille The BMWs Icon It Really Expresses What The Car Is All About Lots Of Power Lots Of Strength, But Especially The Way It Connects The Hood Volume And Emphasizes That And The Nice Little Chamfer Towards The Side Where It's Got A Nice Little Corner It Slightly Brings The Connection To The Lights The Lights Are One Of My Favorite Features Actually.

I Think They Look Fantastic Then. I Took Calvin For A Drive To Discuss The Design In More Detail Inside It's Very Different The Car Isn't It. So, What Are Your Favorite Features In Here First Of All.

I Love The Command Seating. So, Is Sitting A Lot Higher Now And We're Looking Down Onto The Road In Front And We're Looking Down Onto The Cars In Front Of Us And That Really Gives Us The Sense Of Command Control Which Is What Ex Car Is Really It's All About. I Love The Panoramic Dashboard Where It's Really Stretching From Left To Right Yeah Yeah It Gets.

So, Much Of A Sense Of Space In Here Yeah And The Headroom Even With Like Discards To Go On It's Got A Sunroof And You Still Don't Feel Closed In At All Right Anyway Well One Of The Things About Working At BMW Is That Everything We Design And Build Must Pass The Approval Of Our Board Members And Every One Of Our German Board Members Is Quite Tall And It Must Be Very Comfortable For Them And. So, That Is Always Our First Test For The Car Alright So, If They Can't Fit In It And Don't Feel Comfortable Or They're Had Anywhere Near The Roof It's Like That Back To The Drawing Board Right Again Right. So, How Far Do You Go Into Actually Selecting The Materials Used Or Do You Just Come Up With The Design It Depends On Your Role.

So, We Have A Few Different Teams Exterior Team Interior Team And Color And Materials How Long Did You Have To Wait Before You Got To See How They Build Up Your Of Your Design Well We Run The Processes Parallel Okay. So, You Know Every Step Of The Way Well Yeah What's What's Starting To Look Like And How It's Taking Shape. So, We're Constantly In Communication With Each Other Interior And Exterior Teams And.

I Guess He Could Say Well When You Open The Door That's Where My Official Responsibility Ends Yes, But Then You Still Obviously It's Got To Be One Single Unit And Feel That's True It's Got A Bit Have Symmetry And Flow From Rival Exterior The Interior So. I Think That's What. I Really Like About This Car Because The Interior And Exterior They Really Talking To Each Other It Was Part Of The Brief To Make It As Spacious And As Big As You Could Within The Framework Of Being A Compacted Baby Yeah Definitely We Had Very Clear Goals To Achieve For Getting A Great Interior Space Great Command Seating Tons More Cargo Area Even Under The Under The Floor You Can Add Lift That Up You Can Fold The Seats Down Get As Much As You Need.

So, Now That X1 Is Is Here It's Arrived. I've Done What Are You Working On There More Cool Cars More Cool Cars And Say Anything That's Alright.
