BMW's color technology could help make future vehicles more personalized – Automotive News

A color-changing technology from BMW called iX Flow could one day allow vehicles to become more energy efficient or more personalized to a driver’s taste. The automaker unveiled the concept on an iX electric crossover in body wrap containing E Ink technology, similar to the tech used on a tablet reader.
The tech can turn the exterior of the vehicle white, which can help reduce the need for air conditioning on a sunny day, or black, which can help to absorb heat on colder days. The tech has the potential to make future vehicles more personalized with the introduction of different colors, the automaker said in a statement.
