As part of the Los Angeles Auto Show, the jury of the American edition of Green Car Journal named the winner of the “Best Green Car” in 2014. It received the honorary title of the Electric BMW i3. According to experts, in determining the best eco mobile considered not only the influence of the vehicle on the environment, but also its “accessibility for the mass market.” In the US, the cost of German compact car with electric drive will start from 41 350 dollars. For the title of “the best”, BMW i3 had to fight in the final stage with such cars as the Chevrolet Impala Bi-Fuel, engine that can run on gasoline or natural gas, Audi A3 TDI with a familiar, yet economical turbo diesel, Honda Fit with a 1.5-liter gasoline power unit and the VW Golf with turbo diesel.

By the way, this is the first victory of an electric vehicle for all the duration of the competition. Last year it was Honda Accord’s victory, which won thanks to a wide range of environmentally friendly motor units (at least in North America), including the engine running on natural gas, hybrid, and a rechargeable hybrid (plug-in hybrid), and in 2012, the Ford Fusion.
