Default Is the BMW i3 the most advanced production car?

http://www.carbuildindex.com/20103/vide ... production

The movies are inside the factories where the carbon fibre, the cloth and the 3D-Prepregs are made. Then they show the composite manufacturing with a cycle time of 90s which is breath taking IMHO. It continues with the gluing of the carbon body shell in also less than 90 s. To me it looks like we have a whole factory with a typical cycle time of 90s. It means they should be capable of running 0.3 million vehicles p.a. through the factory at full song. ATM they are planning 10% of that. It is bloody impressive for the world's first mass produced carbon fibre vehicle body.
