BMW Advanced Diesel Models Qualify for Tax Credit

February 05, 2009

BMW of North America LLC confirmed Feb. 4 that both of its 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 will burn significantly less fuel and produce significantly fewer greenhouse gas emissions, purchasers of the 335d sedan will qualify for up to a $900 tax credit while purchasers of the X5 xDrive35d sports activity vehicle will qualify for up to a $1,800 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, LLC.

Both BMW Advanced Diesel models deliver class leading fuel efficiency. The 335d sedan, the most fuel efficient BMW ever sold in the U.S., delivers 23 miles per gallon city and 36 miles per gallon on the highway according to the U.S. EPA. The X5 xDrive35d is rated at 19 mpg city and 26 mpg highway. Both models are capable of traveling nearly 600 miles on a single tank of fuel.
