Both of the BMW Advanced Diesel models with BluePerformance technology have qualified for an Internal Revenue Service Advanced Lean Burn Technology Motor Vehicle Tax Credit. In choosing vehicles that burn significantly less fuel and produce fewer greenhouse gas emissions, purchasers of the 335d Sedan will qualify for up to a $900 tax credit, while purchasers of the X5 xDrive35d will qualify for up to a $1800 tax credit.
"Qualification for these tax credits is further recognition of the remarkable efficiency of our new BMW Advanced Diesel models," said Jim O'Donnell, President of BMW of North America.
Both BMW Advanced Diesel models keep the promise of the Ultimate Driving Machine while delivering class-leading fuel efficiency.

The X5 xDrive35d is rated at 19mpg city and 26mpg highway. Both models are capable of traveling nearly 600 miles on a single tank of fuel and are available in BMW centers across all 50 states.
