CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new “Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure” (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the “New European Driving Cycle” (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the “guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars”, available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.

The new BMW 8 Series Convertible.

BMW:The new BMW 8 Series Convertible.

  • Premiere for the second model in the new BMW 8 Series
    luxury-class line-up: New BMW 8 Series Convertible combines
    dynamic flair and serene long-distance ability with a sumptuous
    open-top driving experience.
  • Open-air driving pleasure for four people. Classical soft-top
    roof with fully electric, extremely quiet operation, minimised
    weight and outstanding acoustic comfort. Roof opens and closes in
    15 seconds at the touch of a button and when travelling at up to
    50 km/h (31 mph). Soft-top in Black as standard or Anthracite
    Silver effect as an option.
  • Standalone interpretation of emotionally rich exterior styling
    based on the new, clear and precise BMW design language. Familiar
    BMW proportions and elegantly flowing lines stand out particularly
    clearly with the roof down. Compact, taut soft-top generates
    distinctive “deck” silhouette.
  • Wide, sporty rear-end design underlines the low-slung stance of
    the new BMW 8 Series Convertible.
  • Exterior and interior design work together harmoniously. Gently
    rising shoulderline; surrounds for the side windows and soft-top
    lid merge. Front and rear seats embraced in a flowing movement.
    Sophisticated design for soft-top compartment with subtle domes
    and surfacing that takes its cues from the instrument panel and
    door shoulders.
  • Market launch in March 2019 with two model variants: BMW M850i
    xDrive Convertible (fuel consumption combined: 10.0 – 9.9 l/100 km
    [28.3 – 28.5 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 229 –
    225 g/km)* with 390 kW/530 hp V8 engine and BMW 840d xDrive
    Convertible (fuel consumption combined: 6.3 – 5.9 l/100 km [44.8 –
    47.9 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 165 – 155 g/km)*
    with six-cylinder in-line diesel engine and 235 kW/320 hp. Both
    engine variants meet Euro 6d-TEMP exhaust standard. Power transfer
    by eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission and BMW xDrive
    intelligent all-wheel drive.

    racer. Low centre of gravity, even weight distribution,
    lightweight construction using aluminium, magnesium and
    carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP), aerodynamically optimised,
