Play • 36 min

We are almost at the end of our journey, but only almost. On the search for the greenest car, constant innovation is an important part of the BMW philosophy. The development of new ideas, new processes, new materials, and new solutions. We have plans and ideas for a sustainable future, of course, but which ideas haven’t we thought of yet? And which ideas are on the way? As you can see, there are still plenty of open questions, and Anne Therese is looking for answers. To find them, she calls Los Angeles from Munich, visits BMW Welt, and immerses herself in the history of sustainability at BMW at the BMW Museum. Join her and tune in!
