The BMW Group received a major order from Carbon Motors Corp to supply more than 240,000 diesel engines for American law enforcement vehicles. BMW board member Ian Robertson and William Santana Li from Carbon Motors Corp signed the contract at a ceremony in Washington DC. The agreement calls for delivery of inline six-cylinder diesel engines complete with cooling and exhaust systems as well as automatic transmission.

Ian Robertson said, "We announced the expansion of our powertrain sales business and this agreement with Carbon Motors marks an important milestone along this route - with others to follow." Robertson continued: "We are delighted to support Carbon Motors Corp with our engine expertise. BMW Group diesel engines have a clear lead over the competition when it comes to fuel consumption, emissions and performance. In this way, we will also help reduce the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of more than 240,000 US law enforcement vehicles by up to 40% over the coming years."

Carbon Motors Corp. was founded in 2003 and is the world's first manufacturer of purpose-built law enforcement vehicles. "In the BMW Group, we have found a strong partner who has been operating successfully in the US for more than two decades," noted Li. "The BMW Group drive system makes it possible to accommodate the law enforcement needs for performance, efficiency and driving dynamics. Efficient BMW diesel engines will benefit not only the environment, but - thanks to the fleet's lower running costs-- also the American taxpayer," said Li.
