The new BMW i3 is making its mark in the automotive world. The electric vehicle was recently crowned winner of the 2017 World Urban Car award at the New York International Auto Show.

“This award highlights BMW Group’s commitment to sustainable mobility through BMW’s first all-electric vehicle made primarily of carbon fiber,” said Ludwig Willisch, Head of BMW Group Region Americas.

Introduced in 2014, the i3 raises the bar for the electric vehicle segment by combining luxury, power and efficiency into a well-rounded four-door hatchback that makes driving fun again. For 2017, the i3 gets a brand-new battery pack that is larger than before, giving the car an estimated 114 miles on a charge, an increase of 33 miles compared to the previous model.

The plug-in i3 can hold up to four passengers comfortably. Inside, you’ll find a wealth of amenities, including automatic climate control, heated front seats, Bluetooth, HD and satellite radio, navigation and a 6.5-inch display screen. The car’s unique exterior comes with sporty 19-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, rear parking sensors and more.
