The BMW Group is presenting yet another milestone on the way to CO2-free mobility at Auto China 2010: The BMW Concept ActiveE clearly substantiates the consistent process of development BMW is taking as a premium car maker in the area of electric mobility. Based on the BMW 1 Series Coupé, the BMW Concept ActiveE is powered by a 125 kW/170 hp electric motor, thus offering all the driving characteristics typical of the brand free of any emissions.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here:
