From Carbon Fibre to BMW i3

In this video, BMW demonstrates the journey of its carbon fibre, from SGL Carbon’s manufacturing facility in Moses Lake to the Wackersdorf facility where the final product will be the BMW i3.

It all starts with one carbon fibre that’s just about one seventh the width of a human hair. The result is an extremely lightweight and robust passenger cell of the BMW i3 and BMW i8. Watch the clip to see how BMW is doing this.
