Weight loss: Next-generation BMW 7-Series to use carbon fiber construction

2012 BMW 7-Series

Here is a quick tidbit for you guys – according to BMW R&D chief Klaus Draeger, the next-generation BMW 7-Series sedan will use a carbon fiber construction to drop some weight off the heavy sedan.

Engineers have been studying implanting carbon fiber construction technology in mainstream BMW models since they began development on the BMW i3 and BMW i8 eco models. Starting 2015, that technology will start making its way into other BMW vehicles – kicking off with the new 7-Series.
