The BMW i3 Wins the First Ever World Urban Car Award

BMW is all about breaking new ground, and they've done it again with the 2017 BMW i3. In the 2017 World Luxury Car Awards given out at the New York International Auto Show, the BMW i3 was recognized with the first ever World Urban Car Award. It's the top urban car for New York, and the top car for Portland.

The 2017 BMW i3 comes with 50% more battery capacity than previous models, in large part due to the increased energy density of the lithium ion cell. With increased battery capacity comes an increased mileage range. And yet its electric motor still propels up to 170 horsepower, and a 0 to 60 mpg time of a little over seven seconds. Not only is the BMW i3 efficient, and eco-friendly, but sporty at the same time.

As the first all-electric vehicle made mostly of carbon fiber, the BMW i3 offers a small body perfect for tight city streets and parking. But small doesn't mean boring, and BMW certainly makes sure of that in this exciting and sporty electric vehicle.
