BMW Delivers 40 Vehicles To London Olympic Committee

Posted on March 26, 2012

LONDON — A fleet consisting of electric, diesel, and hybrid cars from BMW’s EfficientDynamics technologies program have been delivered to the London Organizing Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) for the 2012 Olympic Games to be held here. LOCOG will use the vehicles for various purposes during the 2012 Games, including chauffeuring VIPs.

Among the first vehicles delivered are the 520d EfficientDynamics sedan and the 320d EfficientDynamics sedan, both of which run on diesel. Also delivered were a range of motorcycles and bicycles from the EfficientDynamics program. The vehicles will achieve LOCOG’s strict 120g CO2/km emissions target.

Paul Deighton, LOCOG’s CEO, told TheChauffeur.com, “The BMW fleet will become a familiar sight around our venues this summer and will help us perform a huge range of tasks that will help to ensure the smooth running of the Games. Taking delivery of the first vehicles is an exciting moment for us as we continue our preparation for the Olympic and Paralympic Games.”
