A new iteration of the BMW i3 Concept was presented by the German automaker at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. The new iteration has a passenger cell made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic, while its interior design is also consistently geared towards sustainability. The eucalyptus wood used for the instrument panel comes from a sustainable cultivation source in Europe and is treated exclusively with natural substances. The high-quality leather of the seats has a fine surface consistency achieved by processing tanning agents gained from olive leaves. Additionally, parts of the instrument cluster and door trim are made of natural wool fabric. This city vehicle is expected to launch in 2013.
