“Congratulations to BMW on creating a new car that breaks the mold when it comes to green cars,” said AutoGuide.com Editorial Director Colum Wood.

Giving readers a choice to voice their opinion on which new car is the best, AutoGuide.com polled its readers as well as the over 30 million members of the 400+ AutoGuide Group forums, who responded by picking the all new BMW i8 as their green car of the year.

In an increasingly competitive category, seven models competed for this year’s Reader’s Choice Green Car of the Year award.

“Congratulations to BMW on creating a new car that breaks the mold when it comes to green cars,” said AutoGuide.com Editorial Director Colum Wood.

The i8’s sports car application of hybrid technology sets it apart as more than a praiseworthy performance car, but a standout in the burgeoning green car segment as well. It uses a turbocharged three-cylinder gasoline engine in combination with electric power to generate a combined total of 362 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque. Official ratings peg the i8 at 76 MPGe or 28 mpg while running on premium gasoline.

With seven different vehicle categories voted for in this year’s Reader’s Choice Awards, Ford took home two wins including the Truck of the Year for the F-150 and the Car of the Year for the Mustang. Winners in the remaining Reader’s Choice categories include the Jaguar F-Type Coupe for Sports Car of the Year, the Cadillac Escalade for Luxury Utility Vehicle of the Year, the Subaru Outback for the Utility Vehicle of the Year and the Mercedes S-Class Coupe for the Luxury Car of the Year.
