BMW i3 achieves new Green Score high (but where’s Tesla?)

The 2015 BMW i3 has earned the highest-ever score of 65 in’s annual environmental ratings. The i3 missed out on our February 6th release, and a spot on the Greenest list, due to its belated appearance in agency databases. It now appears in the vehicle ratings, along with two other BMW models: the i8 and the i3 REX (range extender). The i8 earns a score of 44 and the range extended i3 (a plug-in hybrid version of the all-electric i3, which has an additional 87 miles of range due to gasoline operation) has a Green Score of 56. new and much improved!
