Car insurance: BMW named greenest manufacturer

Friday, 08 January 2010

Motorists looking for cheap car insurance quotes and wanting to do their bit to help the planet may want to consider buying a BMW.

The German marque has been given the Greenest Manufacturer of the Year Award by Green-Car-Guide.com.

BMW Group was recognised with the accolade for its work on lowering car emissions in the past year while still offering a great drive.

"I'm delighted to receive this award which represents further acknowledgement of BMW Group's class-leading advances in this sector, which is helping to reduce costs for businesses and company car users," commented Stephen Chater, corporate operations manager for BMW UK.

Further eco-friendly initiatives from BMW will be forthcoming this year, including a new BMW 320d EfficientDynamics Saloon, which will have emissions of 106g of carbon dioxide per kilometre.

BMW's EfficientDynamics technologies include Auto Start-Stop, Brake Energy Regeneration, Reduced Resistance and Active Aerodynamics.

The manufacturer is also developing ActiveHybrid, which combines the strengths of electric motors with the efficiencies of petrol engines.
