If you think the carmakers need hybrid units to be greener you are wrong. Here's the proof: the line up of BMW Group doesn't include hybrid models, got awarded with the UK’s Green-Car-Guide.com 'Greenest Manufacturer of the Year Award' title.
BMW got awarded because it had the largest impact involving lowering the emission of CO2 in the UK during this past year.
Paul Clarke, the Managing Editor and Founder of Green-Car-Guide.com said 'In keeping with Green-Car-Guide’s core philosophy, the focus of our Award is on best-in-class low emission cars, but the cars should also be great to drive, so the BMW Group offers an ideal range of vehicles to meet the criteria of the award'.
Stephen Chater, BMW Group UK's Corporate Operations Manager stated about the award 'I’m delighted to receive this award which represents further acknowledgement of BMW Group’s class-leading advances in this sector, which is helping to reduce costs for businesses and company car users. We won a plethora of green awards in 2009 and hope to continue this trend with the launch in 2010 of innovative products such as the BMW 320d EfficientDynamics Saloon and its 109g/km CO2 emissions figure'.
BMW received this award for the 2nd time on the past 3 years. The automaker from Germany alongside MINI is quit appreciated for the saving of fuel and the reduction of emissions technologies EfficientDynamics across its whole area as basic.
