The BMW i8's 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol-electric hybrid engine has won the International Engine of the Year ward at this year's Engine Expo even in Germany.

The awards are known as the 'engine Oscars' and are judged by a panel of 65 industry workers from 31 countries.

The three-pot also scooped two other awards - the New Engine crown and the 1.4-litre to 1.8-litre category. The German firm also took honours in the 2.5-litre to 3.0-litre section.

Ford's 999cc EcoBoost engine took the sub 1.0-litre award, while the Tesla Model S won the Green Engine award.

Ford's engine has won eight awards in four years.

PSA Peugeot Citroen took the 1.0-litre to 1.4-litre award for its 1.2-litre three-pot, which is found in the 308 and C4.
