BMW has been making carbon fiber for a number of years. In this article, we’ll be going over three essentials that BMW carbon fibres bring to cars.
The first is the weight reduction in BMW cars which has been an important factor since they introduced their lightest ever car – the BMW i3 model. BMW uses materials from various suppliers and manufacturers to make their own products, and one of these is carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP). It’s used in many areas on BMS like engine compartments, doors, roof panels, and even seats! CFRP reduces weight by up to 50% while adding stiffness and rigidity; it also improves fuel economy and performance in BMW cars.
Secondly, carbon fiber is used for BMW’s aerodynamics; biker racers even use it to make ultra-light racing bikes! Bikes like the bmc team machine SLR01 with its front fork made from CFRP can save up to 80g (or around 200 BMW car wheels) in weight.
Thirdly, BMW carbon fibre is used for bms’s aerodynamics;
