BMW has been systematically implementing its BMW EfficientDynamics strategy in its vehicles since 2007.

Carbon is an ultra-light high-tech material that can be used in bodyshell construction without compromising safety in any way.

For the BMW i models, BMW is the first manufacturer to implement large-scale series production of major vehicle parts from carbon.

Carbon is as strong as steel, but 50% lighter.

Carbon weighs 30% less than aluminium.

The first BMW electric vehicle, the BMW 1602 E, was in operation as long ago as 1969.

100% of the electricity needed for the production of carbon in the LifeDrive modulecomes from hydro-electric power.

100% of the electricity for the assembly plant of the BMW i vehicles in Leipzig is generated from the company’s own wind power.
