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.

Fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures and power consumption and range were measured using the methods required according to Regulation VO (EC) 2007/715 as amended. They refer to vehicles on the German automotive market. For ranges, the NEDC figures take into account differences in the selected wheel and tyre size, while the WLTP figures take into account the effects of any optional equipment.

All figures have already been calculated based on the new WLTP test cycle. NEDC figures listed have been adjusted to the NEDC measurement method where applicable. WLTP values are used as a basis for the assessment of taxes and other vehicle-related duties which are (also) based on CO2 emissions and, where applicable, for the purposes of vehicle-specific subsidies. Further information on the WLTP and NEDC measurement procedures is also available at www.bmw.de/wltp.

For further details of the official fuel consumption figures and official specific CO2 emissions of new cars, please refer to the “Manual on the fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and power consumption of new cars”, available at sales outlets free of charge, from Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH (DAT), Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen and at https://www.dat.de/co2/.
