BMW and SGL Carbon want to invent the car of the future with the help of a synthetic material called carbon fiber (CFK). It's heat resistant, stronger than steel and lighter than aluminum. That makes it ideal for electric cars. BMW plans to launch its 'Megacity Vehicle' e-car in 2013. BMW already makes parts of its M3 and M6 cars out of carbon, including the roofs and mudguards. But this state-of-the-art material is also a lot more expensive than steel and aluminum.
