Fiat Named Greenest Carmaker in Europe for 2011

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

For the fifth year running, Fiat Automobiles has recorded the lowest level of CO2 emissions by vehicles sold in Europe in 2011, with an average measurement of 118.2 g/km (4.9 g/km less than the 2010 average).

Fiat logged a CO2 average of just 118.1 g/km (4.9 g/km less than the 2010 average). Fiat also ranked first as a Group, with 123.3 g/km, an improvement of 2.6 g/km on last year.

The figure takes into account all Fiat’s brands, including the Ferrari supercars and Maserati’s high performance luxury vehicles.

Over the last five years Fiat Automobiles has reduced its average emissions by 14%, from 137.3 to 118.2 g/km of CO2, significantly lower than the target set out by the European Union for 2015, which has been fixed at 130 g/km.

This result shows Fiat's commitment to protecting the environment through the development of simple and ingenious solutions such as the TwinAir engine, the world's most ‘ecological’ turbo petrol engine, the use of alternative fuels such as Methane/LPG, a sector in which the brand is European leader, and the development of innovative technology such as eco:Drive, an application which encourages a more responsible and eco-compatible driving style,  and which has allowed a large number of the drivers who use it regularly to achieve emissions which are even lower than the type-approval levels.
