EU6 emission norm.
BMW engines have always been ahead of their time because they have been the core competency of BMW since 1917. The engines of the BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo provide particularly impressive proof of this. With outstanding performance, spontaneous response and commendably smooth running, it meets the highest standards of cultivated driving comfort.
BluePerformance technology, standard on all diesel models, is forward looking and allows the diesel engine’s emission behaviour to be further optimised. In addition to the diesel particle filter and oxidation catalyst, a nitrogen oxide converter reduces the NO2 contained in the emissions even further. Some models break down nitrogen oxide in a different way: the SCR converter (SCR = selective catalytic reduction) with AdBlue injection. A chemical reaction set in motion by an injection of the urea solution AdBlue reduces NO2 significantly. In the long run, this results in one of the cleanest diesel vehicles in the world with consistently reduced emissions. This fulfils the stringent EU6 emission norm that comes into effect in 2014.
