Unlike other electric vehicles, the BMW i Vision Circular achieves 100% use of recycled materials as well as 100% recyclability. How so? It makes use of materials that have already completed a product life cycle, alongside certified bio-based raw materials, including the all-solid-state battery. This means it has a much higher energy density with significantly reduced use of valuable resources.
Aside from the holographic-like dashboard, the interior utilizes mono-materials and innovative joining techniques that avoid the use of glue in order to ensure optimum suitability for dismantling and sorting at a later stage. Plus, all components and materials will be manufactured to fit exactly using processes like 3D printing, while any surplus will be systematically fed back into the materials cycle.

We lead the way for resource efficiency in production and we are seeking to extend this status to all stages of the vehicle life cycle. This is a question of economic sustainability too, as the current trend in commodity prices clearly shows the financial consequences in store for any industry that is reliant on finite resources. We will take the next big step towards achieving this with the ‘Neue Klasse’ models. We appreciate there are many BMW fans longing for a first foretaste of the ‘Neue Klasse’, but the BMW i Vision Circular isn’t it. I can promise, however, that, on a sustainability level, the ‘Neue Klasse’ is being developed with the same mindset applied for the BMW i Vision Circular,” said Oliver Zipse, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG.
