BMW has kicked off 2021 by scooping an impressive number of wins at the 43rd annual What Car? Awards. The BMW 3 Series, 4 Series and 5 Series have all been announced as winners, as were the BMW X5 and X6. In addition to these, a further nine awards were collected for a range of models across the Best Buy categories, which included several important wins within the competitive plug-in hybrid and electric class.
The BMW 330e secured the highly coveted Executive Car of the Year award, to add to the seven industry awards already collected in 2020. The BMW 330e Series also picked up the Best Plug-in Hybrid to Drive.
Steve Huntingford, Editor, What Car? said “The latest 3 Series has been our favourite executive car ever since it went on sale, but the specific magic of the 330e Plug-in Hybrid is in being all things to all drivers. It can run for up to 36 miles on electric power alone, which is enough for most commutes, but it's also great at shrugging off long motorway trips and displays an agility and sense of fun in corners that no rival can match”.
