BMW i3 Wins Green Car Of The Year 2015
|   Monday, December 01, 2014
The car chosen for this award handed out by Green Car Journal at the Los Angeles Auto Show 2014 is the first fully electric model in the premium segment. This trophy, plus a long series of awards, went to the BMW i3 and represents the recognition of the unique concept of sustainable mobility that is offered by this model.

Over 12,000 BMW i3 cars were sold from November 2013. The presence of a large number of more and more cars like this on the roads around the world is clear evidence that it is now possible to not be concerned about emissions when driving a car in the premium segment, and this revolutionary combination is one that will clearly leave a mark.
One year after launch, the BMW i3 is the third best-selling all-electric car on the market.

Both the numbers and the diversity of the prizes received by the BMW i3 - which began even before the launch and continued on an upward trend - is exceptional. In Germany, already from sale onset the BMW i3 was awarded the Green Steering Wheel in 2013 - one of the categories in the Golden Steering Wheel competitions organized by Auto Bild and Bild am Sonntag - and was voted the best car in its class for Best Cars awarded by Auto, Motor und Sport. Also the model won two awards from the readers of Auto Zeitung and Auto Trophy 2013 and Green Mobility Trophy 2014.

On the international stage, the car's successful launch was accompanied by top marks in opinion polls and analyzes carried out by independent experts. Until now, the most important distinction prizes were UK Car of the Year, Next Green Car, Green Car of the Year, Fleet Hero, and success in the top segment Sunday Times Top 100 (all in the UK), and the special Jury Prize at the Car of the Year in Switzerland, plus the Trophies de l'Argus in France. In April 2014, a jury of automotive journalists from everywhere has chosen the BMW i3 as World Green Car of the Year and World Car Design of the Year.

The exterior and interior design of the BMW i3 are both innovative and individualistic, and have received numerous awards, including the German Design Award for product design, and Automotive Interiors Expo Award, while the French edition of GQ magazine named the BMW i design director Benoit Jacob Designer of the Year. Other prizes were awarded by Auto Bild, where the BMW i3 design was chosen for Innovation of the Year, and Auto Bild Klassik readers called it the Classic of the Future.

The latest award, Green Car of the Year in 2015 - awarded at the Auto Show in Los Angeles – is the recognition of the overall concept of sustainable mobility which is offered by BMW i3. The assessment made by Green Car Journal was based on the fact that the BMW i3 has no noxious fumes during use, the innovative lightweight design and high percentage of materials produced by sustainable methods that are used in production.

Green Car Journal specializes in reporting on sustainable development technologies and improving the efficiency and trends pioneered in the automotive industry and organizing, annually, starting from 2005 the Green Car of the Year at the Auto Show Los Angeles. This year's exhibition was open to the public from November 21 to 30.
