SUSTAINABILITY

CARBON FIBER PRODUCTION


• Moses Lake
CFRP fibers are manufactured in Moses Lake, Washington. This plant is completely powered by renewable, hydroelectric power, which stays true to BMW i's focus on sustainability.

• Landshut
Germany's BMW Landshut Plant opened in March 2012 and has been using carbon fibers to produce the ultra-lightweight parts that compose one-third of the components found in BMW i models. This plant sets an ecological standard with its significant reduction in primary energy use, having a consumption rate that's 25% below legal regulations.

• Leipzig
Leipzig, Germany, is home to the very first production plant for BMW's electromobility mission, powered by four on-site wind turbines. In March 2011, the plant began its expansion and transformation into a center for EVs, where CFRP components, plastic parts and the bodies of the BMW i3 and i8 will be manufactured.
