Electric Vehicle Wins “Car of the Year”

By Nicky Callinan on February 25th, 2015

The BMW i3 has overcome strong resistance to become the first fully electric vehicle to take out the coveted Wheels magazine “Car of the Year” award.

Wheels editor Glenn Butler said the BMW i3’s victory serves notice to its combustion-engine competitors that the electric vehicles are here to stay.

“This year the future has arrived in the form of a seriously good motor vehicle … that just happens to run on electricity,” he said.

“It ushers in a new era of eco-performance for millions of families and urban commuters around the world, and in Australia.”
