Is it the time to replace metal by carbon fiber?

Until very recently, the use of carbon fiber seemed complicated, mainly because of two barriers -already saved. The manufacturing process of this composite is very complex and requires lot of financial resources. The second barrier is in line with the first one, that is to say, if the manufacturing process is/was complex, the cost is/ will be very high.

But when it comes to savings, big companies and manufacturers get on with it. The alliance between car manufacturers and specialists in production of carbon fiber has begun to emerge, highlighting the ambitious plan of BMW (@bmw) and SGL Carbon. Today, BMW has become the automaker with more experience and possibilities to explode the use of fiber carbon in its street vehicles: BMW i3 and BMW i8.
