BROKERS dealing in PCH ought to have a look at BMW Group’s forward thinking new initiative to move customers into low emission cars.
The company has launched a Lower Emissions Allowance scheme. It offers an additional £2,000 off all new BMW and MINI vehicles with emissions of 130g/km or less.
It is targeted at owners of older Euro 4 diesels.
BMW says it means customers can access a new cleaner Euro-6 BMW from under £155 per month and MINI under £130 per month (plus initial rental).
The Lower Emissions Allowance scheme is being offered through BMW Group retailers and is for retail customers only.
BMW Group says that to qualify for the Lower Emissions Allowance a prospective customer will need to trade in a diesel-powered Euro-4 standard or older vehicle, of any brand, and their chosen replacement car must be either:
- An all-electric car, such as the BMW i3, a plug-in hybrid; or
- A Euro 6-standard vehicle with CO2 emissions of 130g/km or less (NEDC).
BMW currently has more than 80% of vehicles in the range that record 130g/km (NEDC) or less while MINI has nearly 70% of vehicles in this lower emission category.
The allowance is offered in addition to any other government or retailer incentives that are currently in place. It currently runs to the end of December.
BMW Group was named the world’s most sustainable automotive company in the 2016 rating published by RobecoSAM AG for the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes.
In addition to the ongoing optimisation of the internal combustion engine, the BMW Group is forging ahead with the roll-out of electric mobility.
Moving forward, it says that flexible vehicle architectures and manufacturing facilities will allow the BMW Group to decide at short notice which models and volumes to produce with what type of drive: highly efficient combustion-powered, plug-in hybrid or fully electric.
