BMW i3 94Ah is first World Urban Car winner

Within the annual World Car of the Yaar elections, 2017 marks the first year for the World Urban Car award, and it is BMW’s electric i3 with improved range that receives the first honour.

“We are delighted and honoured that the BMW i3 has been recognised as the World Urban Car,” said Ludwig Willisch, Head of BMW Group Region Americas. “This award highlights BMW Group’s commitment to sustainable mobility through BMW’s first all-electric vehicle." The 2017 BMW i3 (94 Ah) provides more range (300 km NEDC), "paired with a high-level of dynamic performance, making it the perfect urban vehicle for people around the world”, Willisch added.

The BMW i3 was chosen from an initial entry list of 7 cars, then a short list of three finalists including the Citroen C3 and the Suzuki Ignis. Vehicles in all award categories are selected and voted on by an international jury consisting of 75 specialist journalists from 23 countries around the globe.
