New BMW Models

The launch of the new 6 Series Coupé and Convertible at the end of October follows September’s introduction of new 1, 3 and 5 Series, Z4, X3 and X5 models featuring BMW’s EfficientDynamics technologies. The new 318d now emits an ecologically-responsible 123g/km while the 520d – the benchmark executive car – now emits only 136g/km. Even the X5, BMW’s class-leading Sports Activity Vehicle, has received Brake Energy Regeneration from BMW’s EfficientDynamics programme. This enables the 3.0d model to emit a congestion charge-friendly 214g/km.

Mid-November 2007 sees the all-new BMW X5 3.0sd arrive in showrooms. Using the world’s most powerful six-cylinder diesel engine, previously seen in the 335d and 535d, the new BMW X5 3.0sd delivers 286hp from its twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre diesel. However, in common with other EfficientDynamics-equipped cars, emissions are kept to a minimum with the new X5 3.0sd only emitting 216g/km and therefore heading for an £8.00 per day London congestion charge under the proposed changes in London. All other petrol and diesel-powered competitor SUVs and SAV’s will be charged £25 under the new proposals. Source:
