I like the idea behind the i3, and will reserve judgement on aesthetics until a little more is revealed.

Iím curious about the 100% recycling claim right after they mention the extensive use of composites (CFRP). From what I understand, carbon composites recycling is far from mainstream right now. There isnít a single commercial composites recycling facility in North America, and only one exists in each of the UK (Recycled Carbon Fibre Ltd) and Japan (unsure of the name). The UK facility can only process 2000 tons annually vs. the 7.8 million metric tonnes of composite products made globally last year.

How do they plan to pull this off?
