BMW 3 Series Green Car of the Year 2012Q: What do BMW get when they combine outstanding fuel efficiency and emissions with impressive performance?

A: Awarded Green Car of the Year by What Car?.

Yes, BMW have done it again, The BMW 320d EfficientDynamics Saloon was declared the Best Executive Car of the Year at the What Car? Green Awards 2012.

This is another great feather in the cap for BMW, and will surely help solidify their standing as an eco-conscious car manufacturer after they were also named the most sustainable car manufacturer for eighth consecutive year by the Dow Jones Sustainability Index.

The stats that impressed What Car?

  • Combined fuel consumption of 68.9mpg
  • CO2 emissions of 109g/km
  • Zero to 62mph in 8.0 seconds
 
It was these unconventional vital statistics that helped the BMW 3 Series fight off very tough competition from hybrids and electric cars – the ability to ‘go green without compromise’.

The underlying factor is the fact that the BMW 320d EfficientDynamics Saloon is a great car in its own right, and the low emissions combined with peak performance not only makes it an award winner, but boasts economic benefits too.

Readers will be pleased to know that when running a 320d as a company car, there will be less company car tax to pay when compared to other models.
