BMW’s ever growing range of electric vehicles has enjoyed a successful night at the Top Gear Electric Awards 2022. Picking three awards, including the Electric Lifetime achievement, Best Luxury Electric and the Best Electric Executive Car, it demonstrates the quality and ambition that BMW is bringing to the new driving category. Check out what the judges from Top Gear had to say.
ELECTRIC LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD: THE BMW i3
"BMW still deserves massive credit for putting it into production in the first place. It will become a modern classic…” - says Ollie Kew, Top Gear.
On why Top Gear gave the award to the BMW i3, Kew also said: “…the i3 is more spacious, more efficient and 300kg lighter than today’s Honda e. Because BMW spent millions making everything bespoke amid a worldwide economic recession – even the wiper mechanism and all of the suspension is purely for the i3 – so it could be as low-mass and parsimonious as possible.”
