Munich. The BMW Group is reorganising its Board of Management to create a new leaner, future-oriented structure. From 1 April 2019, the BMW, MINI and Rolls-Royce automotive brands will be part of a new central Sales Division. It will be headed by Pieter Nota, Member of the BMW AG Board of Management responsible until now for Sales and Brand BMW, Aftersales BMW Group. Nota will also remain responsible for additional functions including brand and product management and aftersales. Meanwhile, BMW Motorrad will become part of the Development Division under Management Board member Klaus Fröhlich.

 

“We are restructuring our divisions to give us the best possible foundation for the future. It sends out a clear signal that our organisation is lean and efficient throughout the company,” said Harald Krüger, Chairman of the BMW AG Board of Management, speaking in Munich on Friday.

 

Peter Schwarzenbauer, responsible for MINI, Rolls-Royce, BMW Motorrad, Customer Engagement and Digital Business Innovation BMW Group until the end of the first quarter of 2019, will remain a Member of the BMW AG Board of Management until October. During this period he will promote the company’s strategical focus on electromobility. Mr. Schwarzenbauer will then leave the company at his own request when he turns 60.

 

“Over the last six years, Peter Schwarzenbauer has taken MINI and Rolls-Royce as well as BMW Motorrad to new heights and set important impulses in the fields of Mobility Services, Digital Services and Customer Engagement. We would like to thank him very much for that and have every confidence that his conviction and passion for electromobility will drive our transformation momentum and ensure the successful launch of the MINI Electric,” said Krüger.

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/.
