BMW grabs best engine of the year award for 2015

The International engine of the year has been awarded since 1999. This award is organised by British UKIP media with other publications in the group. They are further assisted by journalist from all over the globe.

BMW has previously been dominant in year’s motor award. But they have not won since 2008. Since then, Volkswagen won two years in a row, Fiat one and Ford for the past three years. Ford’s small 1.0-liter three-cylinder EcoBoost was the one that got the jury to fall for most between 2012 and 2014, but this year it is a very different drive-train that got the judges attention.

BMW i8

The winner of the International Engine of the year 2015, is hybrid power-train of BMW i8 where a three-cylinder gasoline engine is coupled with electric-motor. The petrol motor develops 231 hp and electric motor develops 131. Together they account for 362 hp. As a result, the vehicle is extremely clean and emits only 49 grams per kilometer of CO2.

This is a victory for a remarkable powertrain. BMW i8 is the future of super sports car available today. It is progressive, emotional and environment-friendly, this is a creation that shows that tomorrow’s transportation cab be very exciting, says Dean Slavnich, Chairman of the International Engine of the year awards.
