BMW Group Receives Order from Carbon Motors Corp. to Supply Diesel Engines for U.S. Law Enforcement Vehicles
MUNICH/WASHINGTON - The BMW Group received a major order from the American law enforcement vehicle manufacturer, Carbon Motors Corp., to supply more than 240,000 diesel engines. Ian Robertson, member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, responsible for Sales and Marketing, and William Santana Li, Chairman and CEO of Carbon Motors Corp. signed the contract at a ceremony held in Washington, D.C. The agreement calls for delivery of inline six-cylinder diesel engines complete with cooling and exhaust gas system and automatic transmission.
"We announced the expansion of our powertrain system sales business as part of the company's Strategy Number ONE. [The] agreement with Carbon Motors marks another important milestone along this route - with others to follow," said Robertson. "We are delighted to support Carbon Motors Corp. with our engine expertise. BMW Group diesel engines have a clear lead over the competition when it comes to fuel consumption, emissions and performance. In this way, we will also help reduce the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of more than 240,000 US law enforcement vehicles by up to 40 percent over the coming years."
"In the BMW Group, we have found a strong partner who has been operating successfully in the US for more than two decades," noted Li. "The BMW Group drive system makes it possible to accommodate the mission critical law enforcement needs for performance, efficiency, and driving dynamics. Efficient BMW diesel engines will benefit not only the environment, but - thanks to the fleet's lower running costs - also the American taxpayer," said Li.
