The BMW Group slashed the carbon emissions of its European fleet by more than 9% between 2021 and 2022.
That’s according to the company’s latest report, claiming that it has outperformed the standards set by the European Union by 22 grams of emissions per kilometre.
Selling more than 215,000 electric vehicles (EVs) globally in 2022 – a 108% increase on the prior year – was a huge contributor to this reduction, with EVs accounting for 9% of total BMW sales.
The automaker has set a target of having this reach 15% in 2023 and 50% by the end of the decade.
It stresses that the 9% drop is just the start, with an overarching aim set for a 40% carbon emission reduction per vehicle through the entire life cycle by 2030 from 2019 levels.
