BMW GROUP WINS THREE FLEET AWARDS.
business30 Nov 2016
In terms of award recognition, 2016 has been highly successful for BMW Group. As the year draws to a close, this trend shows no signs of slowing down, with the addition of three new awards.
GREEN VEHICLE OF THE YEAR.
The BMW i3 was voted as the Green Vehicle of the Year at 2016’s Association of Car Fleet Operations (ACFO) Awards, alongside the Tesla Model S. Our all-electric car was the world’s first mass-produced model to be designed with sustainability in mind, at every stage of production and use. The result is a truly innovative vehicle concept that boasts an ultra-low carbon footprint and can travel distances of over 200 miles on a single charge. John Pryor, chairman of ACFO, said: ‘With the Government continually seeking to drive up demand for ultra-low and zero emission cars, it is critical that [these models] find favour with fleet managers and company car drivers’.
VEHICLE MANUFACTURER OF THE YEAR.
We are thrilled to have been named Vehicle Manufacturer of the Year at 2016’s Fleet Heroes Awards, the event that celebrates sustainable fleet management and rewards manufacturers who have been successful in cutting emissions, improving efficiency and saving fuel. This particular accolade was awarded to our BMW iPerformance models, which all combine a compact, powerful petrol engine with a rechargeable battery. BMW EfficientDynamics – our strategy to minimise fuel usage and levels of CO2 – also impressed the judges.
PROFESSIONAL DRIVER CAR OF THE YEAR.
Last but not least, the BMW 730Ld M Sport Saloon was crowned Car of the Year at the QSI Awards 2016. The 730Ld M Sport model also took the title of Chauffeur Car of the Year. The BMW 7 Series was commended for its unrivalled combination of comfort and technological features, which makes it the ideal car for both drivers and those who prefer to be driven. An improved fuel consumption plus the addition of the BMW Chauffeur Programme made sure our flagship model stood out above other vehicles in its class. Richard Hudson, Sales Director from BMW UK, said of the award triumph: ‘To take home this prestigious award is a real honour.’
