When it comes to eco-friendly cars, it doesn’t get much better than BMW. But even once you start searching for the perfect car within the BMW brand, the choices remain limitless. So here’s a short list of the top 3 most eco-friendly BMWs to help you find your way.
Starting off our list is the BMW Active-E. This gorgeous piece of engineering is already used in San Francisco as the vehicle of choice for BMW’s DriveNow program. It’s completely electric and will go 100 miles on a single charge, requiring only 4.5 hours to completely recharge.
Those looking for something a little bigger will be happy with the BMW i3, a hatchback with a miles-per-gallon equivalent of 196. But its efficiency isn’t limited to the electric motor and the 0 emissions—the i3 is also built at the Leipzig assembly plant powered by wind turbines.
Last but not least is the BMW i8, a sexy hybrid sports car that should help reassure those who fear that electric motors will ruin the sensations of a sports combustion vehicle. This is a car that can go from 0 to 60 mph in only 4.4 seconds while achieving 96 mpg and reducing loads of CO2 emissions, striking the perfect balance between driving pleasure and environmental friendliness.
