BMW trailblazing the use of composites in new i3 electric car

In the latest Reinforced Plastics blog Mark Humphries, Partner at Catalyst Corporate Finance, says the launch of the BMW i3 will certainly boost the profile of composites and their potential to increase fuel efficiency in the automotive sector.
