Fiat has lowest CO2 for fifth year

Fiat TwinAir engine, the world's most lowest emission turbo petrol engine

For the fifth year running, Fiat has recorded the lowest level of CO
2
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 also ranked first as a Group, with 123.3 g/km, an improvement of 2.6 g/km on last year. The record is certified by JATO Dynamics, the world’s leading automotive consultancy and research firm.

Over the last five years Fiat Automobiles has reduced its average emissions by 14%, from 137.3 to 118.2 g/km of CO 2 , significantly lower than the target set out by the European Union for 2015, which has been fixed at 130 g/km.

Fiat has developed the TwinAir engine, the world’s most lowest emission 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.
