The BMW Group has published revised fuel economy and emissions data for its entire range of vehicles in accordance with the new Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP). This means the full range of BMW and MINI vehicles sold in the UK is now fully compliant with the new test regime well ahead of the September 2018 deadline.
Despite the more stringent WLTP test requirements, the BMW range has increased on average by just 8g/km while the MINI average increase is just 5 g/km.
BMW’s market-leading electric and plug-in hybrid range performed particularly well with the top-selling BMW 530e increasing by just 3 grams to 49 g/km.
BMW UK National Leasing Manager, Adam Harley said: “Fleet buyers can have confidence that the full range of BMW Group vehicles is compliant with the new testing requirements and offers a more compelling value proposition than ever when compared with alternative brands.”
“Buyers can also be sure that the figures supplied for all our vehicles are future-proof providing certainty in terms of future cost,” said Mr Harley.
From September 2018, all cars must have been homologated under the new WLTP test cycle which is designed to better replicate real life driving conditions.
“With every vehicle offered compliant ahead of the new WLTP requirement deadline, we have good availability with factory orders available on all models,” said Mr Harley.
