Editor's choice: BMW i3 Voter's choice: BMW i3
Our Greenest Car of the Year award was included to recognise the industry's efforts in going green this year. With the government taking more concrete steps in pushing greener motoring lately, the car companies have followed suit by launching a slew of alternatives for the consumer.
Volvo has impressed us with their new D2 series of engines that boast economy figures of 24km/L. Renault isn't far behind in the economy game either with the Captur's light pressure turbo diesel engine that returns a staggering 25.6km/L.
However, no other manufacturer here has made greater investment in going green than BMW. Just looking at the amount of R&D and effort invested by the German company is stark proof of how serious BMW is in driving the future of the automobile.
The BMW i3 is the brand's most holistic approach to a truly green solution for the automotive industry. Rather than just putting on a front for the end consumer, BMW reinvented the entire production chain with a focus on using green renewable energy to produce the greenest car we've ever driven.
From factories powered by wind, solar and wave energy to interior trim made from recycled materials, the i3 is truly the greenest car here.
The votes have proven that even our readers are well aware of this fact and thus have voted the i3 to be the greenest of them all.
