BMW i3: Electrifyingly yours

The passenger cell is made by gluing components together. We can cut out the damaged area and replace it with a new one.”

I still don’t know what “resource efficiency attainment through industrial verticals” means. But let me encapsulate the i3 in one line – it’s a car that produces zero emissions, is made in a factory with zero emissions, is light and nimble, is supposedly fun to drive, costs as much as a 3 series, and most importantly, sets the path to a future where ultra-light, ultra-strong carbon-fibre can be made at a very low cost and used in mass-produced cars.

If that’s what you get by attaining resource efficiency through industrial verticals, well, we at TopGear are all for resource efficiency attainment through industrial verticals.
