BMW Named UKs Cleanest Automotive Company

It was released earlier today that BMW is the United Kingdom's cleanest Premium Auto Maker. Premium is a key word here. But still, it wasn't Lexus, it wasn't Mercedes-Benz, it wasn't, okay, okay, you get the point

The study was done by an independent green company called Clean Green Cars. The study was done for all over the industry and labeled the BMW brand of cars the cleanest and the greenest of all premium cars sold on the U.K. BMW was found to have, from January until June of 2008, to have only produced an average of 161.64g/km. Lexus, owned by Hybrid toting Toyota, recorded 194.85g/km. Ouch! Supposedly the greenest automaker in the world is suddenly producing the least. Audi and Mercedes-Benz even did better with 177.36g/km and 192.85g/km. Jaguar went over the 200g/km mark and Porsche did an average of 275.64g/km. In all fairness, Porsche has the smallest line-up of cars and only makes sports cars.

Clean Green Cars also showed that BMW has decreased its average level of emissions by 11.34%. Lexus has only helped theirs by 2.16%. Audi improved by 5.78%, Mercedes went down by 4.13%, Jag went down only 2.04% and Porsche increased their emissions by 0.63%.

BMW of course has been showcasing their new EfficientDynamics vehicle line for some time now, and it's obviously payed off for them. They have been working hard to meet the EU emission restrictions and have done so ahead of schedule. They are already working hard to meet the newest EU6 legislation tagged to go into effect in 2014.

Now, if you live in the England, you can rejoice and feel free to let out a nice sigh of relief since you passed over that Toyota Prius for something, say, I don't know, a little bit more worth your time? Hopefully now you won't have the British greenies all over you about your poor judgment in saving the Earth.

green cars that you can enjoy driving, wow what a concept! Now let's see what BMW can do when it launches their version of a Hybrid. Unfortunately I drive one of their most polluting models.
