Having joined BMW in 2006, Matt brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the role. His journey with the brand has seen him work in various capacities at BMW UK, particularly in Strategy and Product Marketing. In 2014, Matt transitioned to BMW of North America, where he successfully led BMW Sales and Marketing for the Western USA, operating in a competitive EV marketplace and managing retail sales throughout the pandemic. Upon returning to the UK last year, Matt has been instrumental in supporting several strategic initiatives and projects designed to shape the future of the business.

Commenting on Matt’s appointment, Debbie McIntosh, BMW Sales Director, said, “We're delighted to welcome Matt into this new role. His in-depth knowledge of our brands gained both in the UK and North America will be of enormous value.

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.
