BMW to Invest $200 Million in American Carbon Fiber Manufacturing Company
|   Monday, May 19, 2014
BMW has confirmed their move of investing $200 Million into their American firm, manufacturing carbon fiber, extensively for use in their mass production and concept vehicles that are being sold across the globe. Demand for energy efficient vehicles are growing and the only confirmed way of enhancing fuel efficiency, is to reduce a car's body weight.

There is no better way of doing that, apart from manufacturing carbon fiber based body shells. The Germany based car manufacturing company, plans on producing 9,000 metric tons of carbon fiber per year by 2015, post which, further investments will be made, ensuring expansion.


This plant on Moses Lake, State of Washington, is known to manufacture BMW grade carbon fiber for use in all their hybrid and electric vehicles. With BMW offering their i3 in more countries, need for raw materials and manufacturing units, are also growing. Conventional cars could soon use carbon fiber too, officials at BMW claim.
