The recently-introduced BMW i3 94Ah has been awarded carsales Car of the Year in the Green Car category.
BMW’s innovative electric vehicle was ranged against strong competition over a week of testing, impressing the experienced carsales judging panel with its exemplary green credentials.
“The carsales Green Car award is further recognition of the BMW i3’s status as an innovator of future mobility,” said BMW Group Australia CEO Marc Werner.
“With its new battery system expanding emission-free range by up to 50 per cent, the updated i3 also eliminates range anxiety, and its production-to-recycling emissions footprint remains unmatched.”
"The BMW i3 represents a brave step towards electric cars,” said carsales Technical Editor Ken Gratton during judging. “It also shows BMW’s willingness to think outside the box, namely with its clever construction and sleek Scandinavian-themed interior.”
