BMW i stands for visionary vehicles and mobility services, inspiring design and a new understanding of premium that is strongly defined by sustainability. The new BMW i3 offers an innovative experience that combines impressive agility and exhilaration with the fascination of relaxing near silent driving. It is an uncompromisingly sustainable vehicle designed for urban areas, driven purely by electric power and purpose-built to meet the demands of sustainable and emission-free mobility.
The BMW i3 is 95% recyclable. The battery module can be re-used as a storage receptacle for solar energy and the surplus carbon fibres can be returned to the production process.
With the BMW i3 you will produce zero driving emissions or odours, thus reducing the air pollution in cities. More importantly, it's easy to charge with "green energy" or to generate energy with your own solar panels. The ECO PRO mode increases range and reduces energy consumption.
The extensive use of kenaf replaces petroleum-based plastics and reduces the weight of the BMW i3. This is because the kenaf fibres are up to 30% lighter than conventional material. They are harvested from malva plants, which convert CO2 into oxygen at an above-average rate
ENDLESS ADDED VENUE.
Sustainability isn't just a word for BMW i; it's the highest guiding principle. Therefore, the entire life cycle of the BMW i3 is structured around maximum resource conservation and sustainability.
The carbon fibres used for the BMW i3 are manufactured entirely with hydroelectric power. Manufacturing at the BMW plant in Leipzig, Germany, is powered entirely with wind energy. Compared to the other BMW models, only half of the energy needed for production is required.
WOOD INTERIOR TRIMS
Eucalyptus has a natural silky grip and a natural pore structure, therefore, it requires about 90% less surface processing than conventional types of wood. The eucalyptus wood used in one of the interior trims come from plantations that are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), which ensures sustainable forestry practices.
Also available is a Dark Oak trim, as displayed in the image.
