BMW i8 presented with World Green Car Award

Following the previous years success of the pure electric BMW i3, the BMW i8 has clinched the World Green Car Award at the World Car Awards 2015.

Combining ground-breaking technology and innovative construction, the first plug-in hybrid vehicle by the BMW Group can be driven up to 37 kilometres using electric power alone. Its 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol engine, equipped with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology, is combined with an electric motor. The battery can be charged at a conventional power outlet, at a charging station or simply while driving.

Dr Ian Robinson, Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG responsible for Sales and Marketing BMW, said: “The BMW i8 represents the future with its unique lightweight construction and unrivalled connectivity. To win this award for the second year in a row shows that our BMWi products are truly leading the world.”
