BMW debuts its new color-changing paint technology at CES: E Ink

If you’re ever in doubt about what color car to buy, BMW may have the car for you. The German automaker showed off its new color-changing paint technology at the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, which has more in common with a Kindle than meets the eye.

Relying on E Ink, the electronic paper technology used in e-readers, and the old Pebble watch, the color-changing paint technology is making its debut on a concept version of the BMW iX presented at CES.

The surface coating of the BMW iX Flow with E Ink contains many millions of microcapsules, with a diameter equal to the thickness of a human hair. Each of these microcapsules contains negatively charged white pigments and positively charged black pigments. Depending on the chosen setting, stimulation by means of an electric field causes either the white or black pigments to accumulate on the surface of the microcapsule, giving the body the desired shade.

Just don’t expect to see this at your local BMW dealer anytime soon: the automaker says this is just an “advanced research and design project.”

The innovative color scheme can be activated at the touch of a button. At the moment the colors are limited to white, black and gray. But despite the limited palette, BMW says it could affect the efficiency of its electric vehicles.

“A white surface reflects much more sunlight than a black surface,” the company says. “This allows the heating of the vehicle and passenger compartment due to strong sunlight and high outside temperatures to be reduced by changing the exterior to a light color.” In cooler weather, darker shades help the vehicle absorb more heat from the sun.

The concept of “personalization” is currently very popular in the automotive industry. But while most of the effort is focused on the interior, tweaking the software to remember the driver’s preferred settings, BMW is bringing the concept of personalization to the exterior of the vehicle.

How durable this high-tech paint is and whether it can withstand extreme weather is a mystery. I can’t imagine that this would work well in, for example, a hailstorm. But don’t listen to me. Color changing car!!
