The 2009 Geneva Motor Show marks the European debut of the new BMW Z4. As a modern interpretation of the classic roadster, this unique car combines its dynamic driving potential not only with sporting and elegant lines as well as supreme driving comfort, but also with the impressive economy of its six-cylinder power units.
The new BMW 730Ld also making its public debut in Geneva sets a new standard for efﬁ ciency in the luxury class. Yet a further highlight is the BMW Concept 7 Series ActiveHybrid offering an outlook at the ﬁ rst hybrid model based on the BMW 7 Series, which will reach production level in the course of 2009.[pictobrowser motoringfile 72157614337780418]
A further outstanding achievement in the context of BMW EfﬁcientDynamics is the development of particularly fuel-efﬁ cient diesel engines reducing emissions to a minimum. The most fuel-efﬁ cient and lowest-emission model within BMW’s portfolio presented in Geneva is the new BMW 116d powered by a 85 kW/115 hp four-cylinder diesel engine and consuming an average of just 4.4 litres/100 kilometres, equal to 64.2 mpg imp, in the EU test cycle. The CO2 emission rating of the new BMW 116d is equally impressive at 118 grams per kilometre.
Offering optional BMW BluePerformance technology, the BMW 330d is the only car in the premium segment to already fulﬁ l the EU6 emission standard today.
