What Car? Awards best green car 2014 to the BMW i3


For those of us not lucky (or talented) enough to attend such events as the prestigious What Car? 2014 awards, we are forced to follow the proceeding from behind a laptop screen while glued to Twitter.

The award we’ve been most interested this year is the “Best Green car 2014”. If I was a betting man, my money would have been on Ford’s darling, the EcoBoost 1.0 Engine as equipped to the best selling car of 2013, the Ford Fiesta.  It’s certainly a surprise that BMW baby EV i3 has secured this years award. 

We have to applaud the i3 for its credentials. The tiny EV is capable of 0-62mph in 7.2sec while being able to squeeze 80 to 100 miles on a full charge. Its not a bad looker either.

EV’s have come a long way since GM’s  “unicorn” EV1. The technology is still very much in it’s infancy and we look forward to seeing what the ever evolving EV technology brings us.
