What Car? has already nominated the winners for the green car category, and as it was expected, the BMW i3 won the category, beating up its competitors like Renault Zoe and Tesla Model S.
The rules for the What Car? nominations were quite simple: the first one is, that all competitors must be “eco”. Every facelift for all new model must pump out less CO2 as the car makers struggle to cope with the emissions regulations.
Then, another criteria would be that all participating cars must make electric motoring more accessible, by introducing technology to go with that.
BMW i3 has it all: high-tech since it has now teamed-up with Samsung to deliver the Samsung Galaxy Gear BMW i3; a new all-electric powertrain and carbon fiber reinforced plastic; an electric motor worthy of our respect: a synchronous electric motor offering 170 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque.
It is the case our big winner, BMW i3, the first electric car that BMW has ever made. And you know how it is said: the first time is always the best time.
Well done BMW i3 electric.
