The BMW i3 and BMW i3s are both up to 85% recyclable. The battery modules can, for example, be reused as solar energy accumulators, and the excess carbon fibre is partially recycled for use in the production process.
In addition to this, approximately 27 used plastic bottles go into every car. These recycled plastics form parts of the seats and doors.
The BMW i3 produces zero driving emissions, thus reducing air pollution. More importantly, it's easy to charge with "green energy" or with energy generated by your own solar panels. What's more, the carbon fibre used for the BMW i3 is manufactured using half the energy normally required and entirely with hydroelectric power.
Charging is effortless, with easy and convenient charging methods, you can always rely on your i3.

Public rapid charging (DC) - A DC (direct current) public charging station enables you to charge your BMW i3 extra fast. The energy is transferred with a constituently powerful current directly to the vehicle's battery. In this way, the BMW i3 can be charged to 80% of its full capacity in under 40 minutes.
