BMW Developing Infrared Heating System

Who needs fans when you have James Bond like technology to heat your car? Last week, BMW discussed an infrared heating system for vehicles that would drastically cut down on energy use for normal car engines.

BMW explained the system would see panels that give off thermal radiation mounted in foot-wells on the inner door panels. Other than the awesome energy savings, this system would be nearly silent since it wouldn’t use fans. It could also heat the car within a minute of starting the engine.

We have no idea if this project will ever see the light of day, but we are still very excited at the possibility of this happening. We will keep you updated on any other rumors we hear. You can always check us out at
