The BMW Lower Emissions Allowance.


The BMW Lower Emissions Allowance.

As part of a long-standing commitment to sustainable mobility, BMW have recently announced a new lower emissions incentive scheme. The scheme enables owners of a Euro 4 (EU4) emission standard or below diesel vehicle* to trade-in their vehicle for any model across the BMW Range with emissions of 130g/km and below, or any BMW i or iPerformance model, with an additional discount of £2,000.

If you currently own a diesel vehicle that was registered before January 2011, you may be eligible for this offer.

You can take advantage of the scheme until 31 December 2017.

Find out your vehicle's Euro emission standard by contacting us by phone or by coming in to see us.  You can also visit the Vehicle Certification Agency (VCA) website.


The Euro 6 (EU6) efficiency rating – what does it mean?

EU6 is a piece of European Legislation aimed at reducing exhaust pollutants that have an impact on air quality, to make cars more environmentally friendly. The legislation sets restrictions on how much nitrogen oxide (NOx) and hydrocarbon gases may be emitted by a road vehicle.

To put the standards into perspective, the SMMT (Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders) claims: "It would take 50 new cars today to produce the same amount of pollutant emissions as one vehicle built in the 1970s."

All new BMW vehicles sold today are EU6 compliant and use some of today's cleanest and most efficient engine technology across the entire model range. Learn more about BMW Engine Technology here.
