A BMW built from 90% recycled parts broke a world record.
A hybrid recycling plant in California, has built an electric vehicle capable of traveling 1,600 kilometers (994 miles) on a single battery charge. This was enough to break the previous record of 1,298 kilometers (806 miles), which was set in Japan in 2013. The car, known as The Phoenix, is a modified BMW built from 90 percent recycled parts. It cost just $13,000 to construct, less than half the price of the cheapest Tesla.
