A prototype for the next-generation BMW 5-Series has been spotted at the Nürburgring. The exterior looks to be an evolution of the current model’s themes but under the sheet metal is an advanced multi-material platform that even includes some carbon fiber in its construction.
Speaking of carbon fiber, the Ford Motor Company [NYSE:F] is looking to make carbon fiber much more affordable. It recently entered a partnership with DowAksa to help speed up the implementation of carbon fiber components across its lineup.
Audi’s chief has confirmed plans for new crossover that will likely be called a Q6. The vehicle will include an e-tron electric version that will be able to drive at least 310 miles on a single charge of its battery.
