New car emission requirements
The BMW Group Lower Emissions Allowance cuts the cost of your new, low emission, car by £2,000 if you trade-in an old diesel by December 31st 2017. This is on top of others incentives. A fair trade-in price for your existing car, for example. Simply choose any BMW or MINI that emits carbon at the rate of 130g/km (or less).
The BMW Group produces a wide range of environmentally responsible cars to sooth your conscience – and the vast majority meet the 130g/km criteria. Propulsion options include petrol, diesel, electric and hybrid. The manufacturer has the “widest range of low emission vehicles” in the country, it claimed. Your trade-in must:
- meet Euro 4 emission standards or older (registered prior to January 1st 2011)
- have a diesel engine
- have been in your possession at least a year

BMW Group UK Chief Executive Officer, Graeme Grieve, explained: “We know, in the early phases, that people still need some incentive to make the jump to fully electric or plug-in hybrid vehicles - and that is why we are delighted to announce this new allowance.”
He added: “For those who the alternative drivetrains do not suit their lifestyle, we still offer allowance qualifying Euro 6 compliant petrol and diesel engine cars that are cleaner than ever.”
