At the heart of the visually reduced cockpit is the circular display of the central instrument cluster, a MINI icon, which will be reinterpreted in the form of a display OLED in the next model family.

The OLED display has a diameter of 240 millimeters and combines the functions of the instrument cluster and on-board monitor.
