Revised BMW and Mini range now WLTP compliant

The BMW Group has published revised fuel economy and emissions data for its entire model range, under the new WLTP test procedure.

Not all models have been carried over though, with the 330e plug-in hybrid and 520d Efficient Dynamics notably missing from price lists.

Under the more stringent test requirements, CO2 emissions for the BMW range have increased, on average, by 8g/km, while the Mini average increase is 5g/km. Published figures are presented in NEDC-correlated format.

BMW’s plug-in hybrid 530e increased by three grams to 49g/km, retaining its position as the most frugal in the range.

A new 150PS 518d with emissons from 116g/km has joined the line-up, while the popular 520d SE now emits from 117g/km.

CO2 figures for the 3 Series diesel now start at 114g/km for the 320d Efficient Dynamics. Petrol models emit from 136g/km.

The 225xe plug-in hybrid Active Tourer now emits 57g/km

Adam Harley, BMW UK national leasing manager, 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,” added 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 Harley.
