BMW scoops electric honours

October 24, 2013

Few people have even set eyes on it yet, but the BMW i3 has collected its first accolade in the UK even before it goes on sale in November, having topped the Electric and Hybrid Car category in The Sunday Times Top 100 Car list.
The supplement highlights the 100 best cars on sale, and said: “BMW has bided its time while others took their first tentative steps into the electric car market.
“The brilliance of the i3 comes not in revolutionary battery technology, for there is none, but by being a car someone might consider buying for reasons other than it’s electric.”
As BMW’s first fully-electric production car the i3 is due to go on sale later this year, priced from £369 a month or £25,680.
