The Legislation and what it means

EU6 is European Legislation which focuses on reducing exhaust pollution which impacts our air quality, to make cars more environmentally friendly. The legislation controls and sets restrictions on how much nitrogen oxide (NOx) and hydrocarbon gases may be emitted by a road vehicle.

To put the standards into perspective, the SMMT (Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders) claims: "It would take 50 new cars today to produce the same amount of pollutant emissions as one vehicle built in the 1970s."

Today, all new BMW and MINI vehicles sold today are EU6 compliant and use some of today's cleanest and most efficient engine technology across our entire model range.
