The BMW Group UK Lower Emissions Allowance

After becoming ‘The world’s most Sustainable Automotive Company 2016’, BMW Group have lowered the emissions allowance providing an incentive to customers who are looking to purchase a new BMW or MINI up until 31st December 2017. Customers who purchase a new BMW or MINI with emissions of 130g/km and below will be provided with an additional £2,000 allowance. Models included within the allowance offer are the BMW i3, i8, all BMW i Performance models and MINI Countryman

BMW Group currently has widest range of low emission vehicles in UK with a view to reduce the impact of emissions on the environment and encourage customers to move into a more sustainable mobility option. The lower allowance will enable customers to drive away in a new cleaner Euro-6 BMW from under £155 per month (plus initial rental)* and MINI under £130 per month (plus initial rental)**.

To qualify for the Lower Emissions Allowance a prospecting customer will need to trade in a diesel-powered Euro-4 standard or older vehicle, of any brand, and their chosen replacement car must be either an all-electric car, such as the BMW i3, a plug-in hybrid or a Euro 6-standard vehicle with CO2 emissions of 130g/km or less (NEDC). BMW currently has more than 80 per cent of vehicles in the range that record 130g/km (NEDC) or less while MINI has nearly 70 per cent of vehicles in this lower emission category. The allowance offered will be in addition to any other government or retailer incentives that are currently in place.

For those wishing to upgrade to a more modern and cleaner car they will be given a suitable price for their existing car providing the customer has owned this for a minimum of 12 months. The new car will also need to be registered under the same name and address as the car that is being replaced.
