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 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.
