Berlin. BMW WorldSBK rider Eugene Laverty (IRL) and his wife Pippa visited Berlin in mid-August and had a busy schedule. Their first port of call was the BMW Motorrad plant in Berlin-Spandau, where they were given a warm welcome. During the tour of the plant, the Lavertys took a look behind the scenes of the motorcycle production and met many of the employees.
 
From Spandau, they travelled to Berlin-Tempelhof. Laverty had been planning to visit his BMW colleagues in the FIA Formula E World Championship for a long time, and finally had the opportunity to do so at the finale of the 2021 season – the BMW i Berlin E-Prix presented by CBMM Niobium. It goes without saying that he also took to the track on two wheels. Appropriately for the Formula E finale, Laverty took the brand-new, fully-electric BMW CE 04 scooter for a spin.
 
“I really enjoyed my time in Berlin where I was able to combine a visit to the BMW plant as well as the final round of the Formula E World Championship,” Laverty said. “I felt a fantastic camaraderie amongst my BMW colleagues both at the plant and at the race track. I’d never before had the chance to visit somewhere quite like the BMW plant, the level of technology and the quantity of bikes produced daily is phenomenal!”
 
“It was cool to get the chance to ride the track layout on the brand new electric BMW CE 04 scooter,” Laverty continued. “The bike is such an impressive piece of kit ideal for riding around the city. I was keen to test the bike’s top speed on the closed circuit. I am a racer after all! The fight for the Formula E world title went right down to the wire so as a race fan it was great to be there and feel a part of it. Thank you to everyone at BMW for making me feel so welcome.”

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/.
