The sheer driving pleasure of a BMW is not exclusive to drivers. Furry passengers can now enjoy the BMW dDrive dog basket, which comes with an in-built fan so pets can experience the exhilaration of the open road from the safety of their basket.

The basket is the perfect gift for dogs who love the thrill of driving but sometimes get a little too close to the edge of the window for comfort. The revolutionary carbon fibre, TwinPower Turbo fan sets a new standard in efficiency, whilst three power modes (ECO PRO, COMFORT and SPORT) to alter speed guarantee a fully customisable experience. Upholstered in luxurious Nappa leather, even the colour and finish of your BMW dDrive model can be personalised to match the unique style of your dog.

Jack Russell, Head of Product Fabrication, says: “We want everyone to be able to enjoy the sheer driving pleasure of a BMW and so we have taken our innovations in mobility solutions using carbon fibre and TwinPower Turbo technology to provide a product for a brand-new audience. Owners can also feel safe in the knowledge that their canine friends are enjoying the thrill of driving in a BMW without any potential mishaps or damage to the back seats.”

CO2 emission information.

The values for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption shown were determined in a standardised test cycle according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version currently applicable. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers transmission (automatic or manual) and the different wheels and tyres available on the selected model and may vary during the configuration.

The values of the vehicles labelled with (*), are already based on the test cycle according to the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to allow a comparison between vehicles. More information on the transition from NEDC to WLTP test procedures can be found here.

These figures are intended for comparison purposes and may not be representative of what a user achieves under usual driving conditions. For plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles the figures have been obtained using a combination of battery power and petrol fuel after the battery had been fully charged. Plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles require mains electricity for charging. The CO2 emissions labels are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the Passenger Car (Fuel consumption and CO2 Emissions Information) Regulations 2001, as amended. They are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle.

A guide on fuel economy and CO2 emissions which contains data for all new passenger car models is available at any point of sale free of charge. For further information you can also visit this link.
