It's because most people fear and hate change. They only care about how they won't be able to drive cars or paranoid that machines would "take over the world". Pretty sure BMW wouldn't be as successful as today without their innovative concepts.

Just because the article talks about an automated-driving vehicle, people freak out.

Also, I think BMWs target market is majority pre-Web2.0 era. I bet "kids" today will be more open to innovative ideas like these when they're actually adults, which is probably when these ideas will probably come to full fruition. Smart move to me--might as well prepare for the next generation market since the current major one will die off sooner or later
