EU6 emission norm.
The pioneering technologies in the BMW X5 engines already meet the strict 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 in the BMW X5 provide particularly impressive proof of this. With outstanding performance, spontaneous response and commendably smooth running, it meets the highest standards of driving comfort.
Another reason to look forward with confidence is BMW BluePerformance technology, which is standard in all diesel models. Thanks to this technology, it has been possible to optimise the emissions response of diesel engines even further. In addition to the diesel particulate filter and oxidation catalytic converter, there is also an NOx catalyst storage which further reduces the level of nitric oxide in the exhaust gas. A further method of nitric oxide reduction is also used: the SCR catalytic converter (SCR = Selective Catalytic Reduction) with AdBlue Injection. A chemical reaction triggered by injection of the urea solution AdBlue greatly reduces nitric oxide emissions. In this way, you can be sure that you drive one of the cleanest diesel vehicles in the world with greatly reduced exhaust emissions that already meet the requirements of the strict EU6 emissions norm that comes into effect in 2014.
