For the fifth consecutive year, the FIAT Automobiles brand has recorded the lowest level of CO2 emissions by vehicles sold in Europe with an average measurement of just 118.2g/km, some 4.9g/km less than the 2010 average.
The Fiat Group also ranked first in Europe, with 123.3 g/km, an improvement of 2.6g/km on last year. The record is certified by Jato Dynamics, the world’s leading automotive consultancy and research firm.
Over the last five years, Fiat Automobiles has reduced its average CO2 emissions by 14%, from 137.3g/km to 118.2 g/km, significantly lower than the 130g/km target set out by the European Union for 2015.
This result is a direct consequence of Fiat’s many environmentally friendly “Air Technologies” such as the award-winning TwinAir and MultiJet engines and the promotion of alternative fuels such as Methane and LPG.
Fiat’s eco:Drive initiative, though not part of JATO research, encourages drivers to adopt a more sustainable driving style and often results in participants achieving even lower real-world CO2 emissions than the type-approved ratings.
