In the autumn of 2011, the BMW X5 xDrive30d will be available with BMW BluePerformance technology and will fully meet all of the requirements of the EU6 exhaust emissions standard. The BMW X5 xDrive30d is truly impressive when equipped with the 180 kW/245 hp inline six-cylinder diesel engine, giving an EU test cycle average fuel consumption rating of 7.4 litres and a CO2 rating of 195 grams per kilometre. These outstanding consumption and emission figures can be enhanced further with an additional innovative emission control technology.
In the autumn of 2011, the BMW X5 xDrive30d will also be available with BMW BluePerformance technology to further reduce the emission of nitrogen oxides (NOx). This is possible with the standard diesel particulate filter used in conjunction with the Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) and an NOx adsorber, which eliminates nitrous gases and sulphur oxides from the exhaust emissions. Thus vehicles equipped with this technology already meet the requirements of the EU6 emission standard that takes effect in 2014. BMW BluePerformance technology is absolutely maintenance-free for the entire lifetime of the vehicle. What’s more, the optimized emission technology does not impact the performance of the BMW X5 xDrive30d, and its average fuel consumption is a respectable 7.5 litres per 100 kilometres (CO2 emission: 198 g/km).
