Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

  • BMW M3 CS:
    Fuel consumption, combined WLTP in l/100 km: 10.4–10.1
    CO2 emissions, combined WLTP in g/km: 234–229

    BMW M3 Competition Sedan with M xDrive:
    Fuel consumption, combined WLTP in l/100 km: 10.1–10.0
    CO2 emissions, combined WLTP in g/km: 230–228

    BMW M340i xDrive Sedan:
    Fuel consumption, combined WLTP in l/100 km: 8.5–7.8
    CO2 emissions, combined WLTP in g/km: 192–177

    The values of fuel consumptions, CO2 emissions and energy consumptions shown were determined according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version applicable at the time of type approval. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers optional equipment and the different size of wheels and tires available on the selected model.

    The CO2 efficiency specifications are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the European Regulation in its current version applicable. The values shown are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle for the classification.

    When charging times are shown they can be affected by a number of factors such as type of charger, voltage supplied to the charger/car and type of current (AC or DC) supplied to the charger/car. The car also plays a role in charging times as it can be set by the driver to accept various different amperage and should preconditioning be used to heat or cool the vehicle while charging this will also affect the charging time.

    The basis for the calculation of the charging times for 100 km range is the electric consumption of the vehicle based on the use of a high-Powered Charging station (HPC) or charging type and current as indicted in the literature above. The testing procedure measures are based on a 23 degrees Celsius battery start and ambient temperature with certification values excluding additional auxiliary consuming devices and systems within the vehicle such as seat heating, displays, air conditioning.

    Individual consumption (fuel economy) may differ due to driving profile, vehicle load profile, auxiliary consumer usage, temperature, and ambient conditions. Consumption is based on WLTP or NEDC (whichever is indicated) best case conditions and is independently tested for BMW Group. If you are comparing this range with other models or brands make sure they are stating the same WLTP or NEDC testing regime. These results can be used to compare vehicles on a close to “like for like” basis but are unlikely to be achieved in real world conditions for reasons including temperature variation, driving conditions and the use of the auxiliary systems referred to above.

    Information provided and images displayed on this site include overseas models and may show some features not available in New Zealand. Please contact an authorised BMW dealer for specific information on vehicles and features available in New Zealand. Product changes may have been made since production of this content.

    Note: To obtain NZ CO2 figures for vehicles imported by BMW Group NZ in relation to the NZ Clean Car discount or “FeeBate” you will need to contact your preferred dealer. The Clean Car discount figures sourced from your dealer will differ from those listed in the BMW owner’s handbook and reported figures as they have been converted by the NZ government to WLTP3 from figures derived through one of the following testing procedures: WLTP4 or NEDC or Japanese JC08 mode or Japanese 10-15 mode or CAFE test cycle.

    For all vehicles not imported by BMW NZ (Used vehicle imports) you will need to contact the source market for these CO2 figures as BMW Group NZ has no access to and cannot source this CO2 data.

    For more information on the New Zealand Clean Car Programme, please visit https://www.nzta.govt.nz/vehicles/clean-car-programme/

    The figures for performance, consumption and CO2 emissions refer to vehicles with standard transmission.

    (1) Performance data of petrol engines apply to vehicles using RON 98 fuel. Fuel consumption data apply to vehicles using reference fuels in accordance with EU Regulation 715/2007. Unleaded RON 91 and higher with a maximum ethanol content of 10% (E10) may also be used. BMW recommends RON 95 fuel. For high-performance automobiles, BMW recommends RON 98 fuel.

    (2) Official data for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions, power consumption and electric range was determined in accordance with the prescribed measuring procedure and corresponds to European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the applicable version. For ranges, data determined as per WLTP takes into account any optional equipment (available on the German market in this case). For vehicles that have been newly type approved since 1 January 2021, only the official data according to WLTP exists. In addition, according to EU Regulation 2022/195, from 01.01.2023 the NEDC values in the EC certificates of conformity will no longer apply. For more information about NEDC and WLTP measuring procedures visit www.bmw.com/wltp

    Further information about fuel consumption and official model-specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be found in the ""Guideline for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and electric power consumption for new passenger cars"", available free of charge at all points of sale, at the Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH (DAT), Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen, Germany, and under https://www.dat.de/co2/.

    (3) The charging performance depends on the state of charge, ambient temperature, individual driving profile and use of auxiliary consumers. The ranges shown are based on the WLTP best case. The charging times apply to ambient temperatures of 23 degrees Celsius after a preceding drive and may differ depending on the usage behaviour.

    (4) The EC unladen weight refers to a vehicle with standard equipment and does not include any optional extras. The unladen weight includes a 90% full tank and a driver weight of 75 kg. Optional equipment may affect the weight of the vehicle, the payload and the top speed if the selected equipment has an impact on the vehicle's aerodynamics.

    (5) Provisional figures; any missing figures were unavailable at the time of publication.
