Winners of the 2013 Next Green Car Awards winners were announced yesterday and the BMW i3 claimed the top prize in two of the eight categories. The Next Green Car Awards are said to be the most scientifically-based Green Car Awards in the UK.

Other winners included the Nissan LEAF which took home the "Small Family Award", The Tesla Model S (Executive Award), the Volkswagen e-Up! (Next Generation Award) and the Volvo 360 Plug in Hybrid (The Large Family Award).
I have a feeling these won't be the last awards handed out the the i3. It will be interesting to see how the i3 is received when the big automotive news outlets hold their annual "Car of the Year" contests. The Tesla Model S swept many of these awards last year. While I don't expect the i3 to claim as much hardware as the Model S did, I do believe it will score very well up against the other new cars introduced this year.
