Diesel models from BMW were awarded top marks for their nitrogen oxide readings in the real-world road test conducted by the ADAC in Germany. The following models scored maximum points in the emissions section of the ADAC EcoTest and were graded as outstanding:

BMW 520d Touring (fuel consumption combined*: 4.8-4.7 l/100 km [58.9-60.1 mpg imp], CO2 emissions combined*: 125-123 g/km; figures as at 06.12.2018)

BMW 218d Active Tourer Steptronic (fuel consumption combined*: 4.5 l/100 km [62.7 mpg imp], CO2 emissions combined*: 119 g/km; figures as at 10.12.2018)

BMW X1 sDrive 18d Steptronic (fuel consumption combined*: 4.6 l/100 km [61.3 mpg imp], CO2 emissions combined*: 121 g/km; figures as at 10.12.2018)

Munich. The EcoTest organised by the ADAC (the German automobile association) is a rigorous testing procedure that subjects vehicles to a thorough examination, including measuring their pollutant emissions in real-world road driving. A trio of diesel models from BMW recently achieved the best possible score of 50 marks, resulting in the award of grade ‘1’ for outstanding. The BMW 520d Touring performed superbly in the nitrogen oxide tests, with a reading of less than 16 mg/km in urban driving and under 10 mg/km in rural driving and on the motorway. The maximum allowed is 168 mg/km. The ADAC had the following to say about the BMW X1 sDrive 18d Steptronic: “BMW is dealing extremely well with the issue of emissions. There are no abnormal figures for any type of pollutant, and the nitrogen oxide emissions are so low they could even be a record. Even the sensitive measuring equipment used for the test barely managed to detect any emissions in some cases.”

BMW models have performed comparatively well in nitrogen oxide emission tests in the past, too. This was the case, for example, in the real-world road test conducted by German motoring magazine auto, motor und sport (issue 19 from 23 March 2017) and the many follow-up tests carried out by authorities in countries including France, Korea and Japan. Here, the respective BMW models obtained some of the best results.

The ADAC test results are further proof that today’s BMW diesel models with state-of-the-art technology produce remarkably low emissions. Three factors, in particular, are key to achieving this:

  1. Many years of experience with and ongoing improvement of all the components used for reducing NOx emissions (e.g. exhaust gas recirculation, adsorption catalyst and SCR system).
  2. Use of the very latest exhaust gas aftertreatment technology.
  3. Matching the engine’s configuration to this cutting-edge exhaust gas aftertreatment technology at an early stage during the vehicle development process.

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