As recognition of the class-leading position BMW Group vehicles command, courtesy of EfficientDynamics technologies, the marque has once again scooped the top prize at the Green Fleet Awards to be crowned Fleet Car Manufacturer of the Year.
BMW Group was recognised, for the third year in a row, as the car manufacturer that had shown the greatest improvements in CO2 emissions, had expanded its range of low emission vehicles or offered alternative fuel vehicles to fleet customers. This commitment is demonstrated by the introduction of vehicles such as the new BMW 5 Series, which has significantly lower CO2 emissions than its predecessor at 129g/km for the BMW 520d, and the BMW 320d EfficientDynamics, with combined CO2 emissions of 109g/km.
Angela Pisanu, Editor of Green Fleet, said: "Through its EfficientDynamics initiative, BMW has continued to raise the bar in respect of delivering class leading reductions in carbon dioxide emissions whilst at the same time maintaining exceptional vehicle performance and economy. BMW's achievements in small, medium and in particular the upper fleet vehicle sector convinced us that the firm is once again a worthy winner."
Stephen Chater, BMW Group Corporate Operations Manger, said: "It is great news that we have once again been crowned Fleet Car Manufacturer of the Year. This award recognises BMW's continued commitment to reducing emissions through its EfficientDynamics programme, across the whole range."Published 14 October 2010
