BMW named Fleet Manufacturer of the Year at the Business Car Awards 2022

• Five category award wins for BMW at the Business Car Awards 2022
• BMW is named Fleet Manufacturer of the Year
• BMW i4, 3 Series, 5 Series and X5 lead their respective categories 

BMW was triumphant at the 2022 Business Car Awards last night, securing five prized category wins, including the prestigious Fleet Manufacturer of the Year Award.

Besides receiving the headline award, the BMW i4, 3 Series, 5 Series and X5 were each recognised as best in their respective class.

On presenting BMW with the award for Fleet Manufacturer of the Year, Martyn Collins, Editor, Business Car Magazine said, “We continue to be impressed by how BMW builds on its strong fleet record through its choice of models – most recently with its expanded EV range. Then there’s the support for company car drivers, from keeping them updated on the status of their order, through to the roll out of ‘Inside Edge’, an exclusive rewards platform for BMW company car drivers.”

The BMW i4 attained its sixth accolade for 2022, winning the award for Best Electric Car over £40,000. Judges commended the i4 for its “impressive electric range” and “practical hatchback design”. Collins added, “it is the perfect premium EV option for user-choosers or businesses to go green without attracting attention.”

The BMW 3 Series retained its Best Premium Car title for the fourth consecutive year, described by Business Car as the “king of the premium cars”. The model was commended by judges for its “attractive mixture” of driver appeal, comprehensive choice of engines, and low total cost of ownership.

The title of Best Premium Large SUV was awarded to the BMW X5, as the car was celebrated for its “quality, well-made and well-designed” interior, as well as its “optional seven-seat practicality”. Collins paid tribute to the model’s development over the years, stating, “BMW has been refining the X5 for the past 21 years, and the current fourth-generation version is a brilliant fleet choice.” A special mention was also given to the plug-in hybrid X5 xDrive45e model for its “impressive” 8% BIK.

The fifth and final award went to the BMW 5 Series, which remains Business Car’s Best Executive Car for the third year running. Collins said, “There’s nothing we’d take over the 5 Series’. Despite serious competition from new rivals, the BMW remains the accomplished all-rounder its always been.”

In response to receiving the five category award wins, Steve Roberts, General Manager, Corporate Sales at BMW Group UK said, “I am delighted to accept these awards on behalf of the corporate sales teams at BMW UK. We are incredibly proud to be named Fleet Manufacturer of the Year as the award recognises BMW’s continuous ability to adapt to fast-changing market conditions with our extensive model portfolio and ever-growing electrified range, without compromising on our industry-leading service for business customers.”

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.
