Things are hotting-up on the production line at the BMW Dingolfin Plant in Germany.In the second part of this informative trilogy from the brand new BMW sub-brand we get to see some more futuristic robotics in action! (Missed part 1? Watch it here)
Keep your eyes peeled for the nimble ‘fingered’ knitting robot, deftly fixing electric engine parts together, and definitely don’t miss the vacuum moulding and assembly of the cockpit – it looks more like they are constructing a Decepticon, or making a suit for the new Batman movie!
As the process progresses it appears that every aspect of the BMW i3 is as forward thinking as it’s ambition to change the future of the automotive industry!
Highlights include:Electric engine manufacture – A complex, albeit quite artistic assemblage of wires, and precision cut components that make up a high performance electric engine.
Cockpit construction – How do they get such a neat leather trim? The secret is finally revealed!
Bodyshop assembly line – The BMW i3 starts taking shape! The frame is assembled and sprayed ready to take on all the other parts that make this car so special.
