BMW i Innovation Days 2013 at Leipzig. The BMW i3 has been infused with lightweight CFRP materials and suitable electronic technologies under the 360° ELECTRIC label.

40 years of electric mobility at the BMW Group (13)BMW will be launching its electrically powered production vehicle the BMW i3 shortly as it strives to combat social, economic and ecological challenges faced by individuals in current day scenarios. Modern lightweight materials as also innovative production processes have been used to manufacture this vehicle.

During the course of production BMW takes care to reduce the environmental impact by making use of renewable sources of energy and treating factory effluents effectively. Production of Carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CRRP) is undertaken using renewable sources of energy and managing waste effectively. Right from the recycling process of fibers to the CFRP production chain and final manufacturing process, electricity used is generated from hydroelectric stations and wind farms. With use of CFRP becoming important now days, the time taken to manufacture these fibers have been cut down considerably owning to research carried out for the past ten years in relation to this subject. CFRp recycling has also been undertaken to minimize impact to the environment and manage waste effectively at production facilities during production of the BMW i. CFRP, body parts as also batteries are recycled as part of this initiative.

The BMW i3 has been infused with lightweight CFRP materials and suitable electronic technologies under the 360° ELECTRIC label. The introduction of this vehicle will help to improve transportation in major cities and reduce emissions considerably. Efficient charging networks and convenient reservation and payment systems have been developed for the same. Efficient battery technology allows s\for intelligent use of battery power ensuring that it lasts for a lifetime of the vehicle. Finding faults has never been so easy as time saving repair methods have been designed to help rectify faults pertaining to the electronics or paneling of the BMW i3.
