Assembled in Leipzig in one of the world’s most eco-friendly factories, BMW’s i3 electric car is made using 50 per cent less energy and 70 per cent less water than regular cars. Sections of the dashboard and trim are made from sustainably grown open-pore eucalyptus, while the fabric in the seats is manufactured from recycled bottles. The body of the car incorporates carbon fiber reinforced plastics, which is a lighter, stronger alternative to steel. Designed for urban living, the BMW i3 produces zero emissions and is able to travel up to 200km on a single charge. Once it reaches the end of its lifespan, 95 per cent of the car can be recycled.
