Munich/Los Angeles. On 1 August, Oliver Heilmer will step into the role of President of Designworks, a wholly owned subsidiary of the BMW Group. This will see him move from the Interior Design team at BMW Automobiles in Munich, which he has headed up since 2013, to Designworks’ Los Angeles headquarter. Designworks is a creative consultancy working across multiple industries and focusing on mobility, product and user experience design, as well as on strategic brand and design consulting. Taking over the top job at Designworks means Heilmer will be responsible for the company’s strategy, oversee the studios in North America, Europe and Asia, and therefore spearhead the management of all the design teams. Heilmer takes the baton from Laurenz Schaffer, who has been President of Designworks since 2009 and is now switching to a management role at BMW Group Design.

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 current 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: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
