Fiat fleet cleanest in Europe

Fiat Automobiles has again underscored its environmental credentials after registering the lowest average CO2 emissions for cars sold in Europe for the first half of 2010.

The figure of 123.5g/km was corroborated by leading automotive advisor JATO, and is one of a succession of landmark results dating back to 2007.

Of the top 10 brands, Fiat is ahead of Toyota (128g/km), Peugeot (132.3g/km), Citroen (133.4g/km), Renault (134.6g/km), Ford (137g/km), Opel/Vauxhall (141g/km), Volkswagen (142.2g/km), Audi (154.2g/km) and BMW (154.5g/km).

The outcome is one of three exceptional results recorded in the model and group rankings. Although all the 20 best-selling models in Europe reduced their emissions in the first half of 2010, no fewer than three Fiat vehicles are ranked in high positions: the Fiat 500 is first with 116g/km of CO2, the Fiat Panda comes second with 118.9g/km and the Fiat Punto is in fourth place 123.5g/km.

Fiat Group Automobiles was also confirmed first among the groups (126.2g/km), increasing the gap with respect to Toyota (130g/km), PSA (132.8g/km), Renault (136.7g/km) and Hyundai (138.3g/km). It means Fiat is the only automotive group that is already below the European average goal of 130g/km set for 2015.
