BMW again reduces its vehicle fleet CO2 emissions in 2022

The BMW Group continued to systematically reduce its emissions and, based on preliminary internal calculations, lowered its EU fleet-wide CO2 emissions by more than nine percent from 2021 to 2022.

Based on preliminary internal calculations, EU fleet-wide emissions came in at 105 grams of CO2 per kilometer, according to WLTP (2021: 115.9 grams per kilometer), for 2022. This means the company once again outperformed the fleet target limit set by the European Union EU27+2 (EU, Norway, Iceland) of 127 grams per kilometer by 22 grams.

In addition to further increase in vehicle efficiency, the reduction in emissions can largely be attributed to the successful implementation of the company’s electrification strategy.

The BMW Group sold a total of more than 215,000 fully-electric vehicles worldwide in 2022 – an increase of almost 108% compared to the previous year. Fully electric vehicles accounted for nearly nine percent of total sales last year. The aim is to increase this figure to 15% in 2023. In addition, the BMW Group aims for more than 50% of its sales volumes to come from fully-electric vehicles no later than 2030.

The BMW Group became the first German automotive manufacturer to join the Business Ambition for 1.5° C campaign launched by the Science-Based Targets Initiative and is committed to the goal of complete climate neutrality throughout the entire value chain.

As the next step in this direction, the BMW Group plans to reduce CO2 emissions by at least 40 percent per vehicle throughout the entire lifecycle – supply chain, production, and use phase – from 2019 levels by 2030.
