2014 BMW i3: A Macro Look at Interior Materials
May 28, 2015
It's been a lonnng time since I've done one of these posts, taking macro pictures of the different surface materials in a car. But when I sat in our long-term 2014 BMW i3, I was struck by the variety of raw and renewable materials used in its Tera World trim, including dark brown leather seats, open-pore eucalyptus wood trim, and natural cotton weave. It's a collage of colors and textures.
Phil Reed already did a post on its sustainable interior materials but here's an even closer look.

Ooh, sustainable KENAF cotton fibers on the door.
