The BMW i3 has been declared the inaugural winner of the 2017 World Urban Car award.
This year’s winner was chosen from an initial entry list of seven cars from all over the world, then from a shortlist of three finalists: the BMW i3 (94 Ah ), Citröen C3, and the Suzuki Ignis.
“We are delighted and honoured that the BMW i3 has been recognized as the World Urban Car,” said Ludwig Willisch, head of BMW Group Americas.
“This award highlights BMW Group’s commitment to sustainable mobility through BMW’s first all-electric vehicle made primarily of carbon fiber.
“The design brief for the BMW i3 was to create a Mega City Vehicle for the cities of the future. Today, the new 2017 BMW i3 (94 Ah ) provides more range paired with a high level of dynamic performance, making it the perfect urban vehicle for people around the world.”
