INTELLIGENT DESIGN

CARBON FIBER REINFORCED PERFORMANCE.

The BMW i rethinks mobility from the ground up. BMW made the decision to implement Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) to construct the foundation for both the BMW i3 and the BMW i8. The reasoning? This tough material is as strong as steel, but only half the weight. This efficient fiber results in incredibly responsive acceleration, impressive handling, and undeniable efficiency. The use of CFRP in mass-production cars is unprecedented and ultimately highlights BMW's trailblazing attitude toward the future of mobility and automotive.


THE FRAMEWORK OF THE FUTURE.

BMW LifeDrive is a revolutionary architectural concept that was built specifically for electric vehicles, uniquely designed to reduce weight while increasing range and efficiency. Composed of two separate units, the Life Module and the Drive Module form the groundbreaking framework for BMW i cars.

SMARTER MANUFACTURING

INNOVATION STARTS WITH i.

Building BMW i cars has a unique process that is just as impactful as the final products. That's why the BMW i3 and BMW i8 are assembled in factories equally as smart as the cars themselves. In fact, the BMW i manufacturing facility in Leipzig, Germany is BMW's most sustainable automotive plant, and it exclusively relies solely on renewable energy sources. Here in the U.S., carbon fiber threads are manufactured at the Moses Lake, Washington, carbon fiber plant. This American plant is totally and completely powered by locally generated hydropower. The production of the BMW i3 uses 50% less energy and 70% less water- this is outstanding.1 BMW's promise of energy efficiency goes far beyond the process. The materials built into BMW i cars are hand chosen for beauty and a firm commitment to sustainability.
