BMW i Vision Circular - Inform Snippets - Interior Design

With the BMW i Vision Circular, the BMW Group is demonstrating the consistent design of a car according to the principles of a circular economy.

The overall design goal of this visionary vehicle was to create a vehicle that is optimized for closed material cycles and achieves a rate of 100% recycled materials or 100% recyclability.

In addition to bio-based and certified raw materials, materials that have already passed through a product life cycle – so-called secondary materials – are used for this purpose.

This also applies to the energy storage system: The solid-state battery of the BMW i Vision Circular is 100% recyclable and almost completely made from recycled materials.

At the same time, it will achieve a considerably higher energy density with significantly fewer of the most valuable resources.

“We have included circularity in our concept right from the start when designing the BMW i Vision Circular.

That's why this visionary vehicle is full of innovative ideas that combine sustainability with new and inspiring aesthetics – we call this approach Circular Design,” explains Adrian van Hooydonk, Head of BMW Group Design.

Circular Design is based on the four principles RE:THINK, RE:DUCE, RE:USE and RE:CYCLE.
