Munich, 21 July 2021 - Thousands of people are seeing their livelihoods in ruins due to the severe weather in North Rhine-Westphalia, Rhineland-Palatinate, and Upper Bavaria. It is essential to take rapid action.

The BMW Group is therefore making 1.5 million euros available to various rescue organisations that are providing emergency aid in the affected regions.

"The scale of the disaster touches us all deeply. Our sympathy is with the people who have lost so much. We want to make a contribution to providing those affected with the most basic necessities," says Ilka Horstmeier, Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, Human Resources and Social Affairs, and Labour Director.

The BMW Group will contact rescue organisations in Rhineland-Palatinate, North Rhine-Westphalia, and Upper Bavaria to provide targeted help where it is most needed.

In addition, the BMW Group plants in Munich, Landshut, Dingolfing, Regensburg and Leipzig will be providing emergency resources and manpower from their company fire brigades as soon as the legally required request for support is received from the responsible authorities.

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/.
