Fiat crowned Europe’s greenest car maker

For the fifth year running, Fiat Automobiles has recorded the lowest level of CO2 emissions by vehicles sold in Europe, with an average measurement of 118.2g/km in 2011, some 4.9g/km less than the 2010 figure. The Italian car maker, which last year collected four International Engine of the Year Awards for its two-cylinder TwinAir engine, said new, cutting-edge powertrain solutions have helped it to continue to drive down emission levels and keep ahead of the competition.

Fiat also ranked first as an automotive Group, with 123.3g/km, an improvement of 2.6g/km on last year.

Fiat’s achievement, which has been certified by JATO Dynamics, means that over the last five years, Fiat Automobiles has reduced its average emissions by 14%, from 137.3g/km of CO2 to 118.2g/km of CO2, far lower than the target set by the European Union for 2015, which has been fixed at 130g/km.

Fiat says these latest result shows its commitment to protecting the environment through the development of simple but advanced powertrain solutions such as the TwinAir engine; the use of alternative fuels such as Methane/LPG; and the development of innovative technology such as eco:Drive, an application that encourages a more responsible and eco-compatible driving style.
