When BMWs go to heaven or into reincarnation

The BMW Group again been named the world’s most sustainable automotive company in the rating published by RobecoSAM AG for the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes. Sustainability is serious business for BMW. It is a holistic corporate belief in 'whole life' value chain.
BMW i3's design, its manufacturing process, its useful life to its disposal, every part is based on sustainability. See how all the airbags deployed, fluids drained, sub-assemblies and batteries removed, interiors stripped, carbon fiber parts recycled and readied to be used for the new cars.
BMW says as much as 95 percent of i3s car can and should be recycled. That is why you will rarely see i3s at junk yards.

I don't remember when it was introduced, but it's not old enought to justify a large amount of them to be getting out of the road and dismantled.
