Siemens Greece partners with BMW Hellas to reinforce its corporate fleet of vehicles with the latest technology of Plug-in hybrid models

BMW Plug-in Hybrid models are fuel-efficient, combining the best of two worlds. The excellent combined operation of an electric motor with a combustion petrol engine allow zero emissions, pure electric driving in the city and on the motorway, providing a sufficient total driving range for long-distance trips. A battery pack can be fully recharged in 5 hours in a regular domestic socket or in 3,2 hours in a 3.7 kW AC charger. The battery pack can also be charged while driving, with the petrol engine involvement, if the driver selects the relevant drive mode (SAVE BATTERY). The combined fuel consumption in hybrid mode is between 1.9 and 1.7 liters/100 km.  (NEDC/WLTP) while the CO2 emissions are only 43/39 gr./km (NEDC/WLTP).
Siemens is one of the first major industrial companies aiming to go carbon neutral across all its production facilities and buildings worldwide by 2030, and by setting this goal the company confirms that businesses play a pioneering role in fight against climate change. Following this global target, Siemens Greece focuses on minimizing  its CO2 emissions from company vehicles replacing its main diesel business cars with hybrid models that lowered its average carbon emissions by 38 gr/km to this day, while hybrids represent 40% of its total fleet size.
At the same time, Siemens' portfolio includes products and solutions, such as charging infrastructure for electric cars and e-buses, that help to alleviate the negative impact on the environment. Through them, and with the use of advanced software, Siemens connects utilities, buildings, and vehicles, creating a new dynamic digital space that meets the needs of consumers, as well as fostering a sustainable future.
Mr. Johann Goettler, Chairman & CEO of Siemens SA, said: "Using latest environmental technology is further evidence of our commitment to achieving carbon neutrality by 2030. At Siemens we make real what matters and thus it is our duty to protect the planet and ensure prosperity. Through our facilities, products and services, we want to contribute decisively to this goal and continue to benefit the environment and people. At the same time, we aim to enable our customers to do the same, offering innovative products and services that are not only environmentally friendlier, but can also reduce energy costs. It should be noted that Siemens’ environmental portfolio enabled customers and partners to reduce their CO2 emissions by 637 million tons – about 13x the annual amount of carbon emitted in New York City."
With a ten-year plan for sustainability, the BMW Group is underscoring its commitment to the goals of the Paris climate agreement, the main focus being on the expansion of electric mobility. More than 500,000 electrified BMW and MINI vehicles were sold by 2019 in 74 markets worldwide and by the end of 2021, this figure will probably rise to over a million. BMW Group sustainability goals aim at putting more than seven million vehicles with electrified drive systems on the road worldwide by 2030, two thirds of them all-electric variants. As a result of the massive expansion of electric mobility, emissions produced by BMW Group vehicles per kilometer driven will be reduced by around 40 percent by the year 2030. 
Within the framework of cooperation between the two companies, Mr. Andreas Sieben, President and CEO, BMW Group Hellas, commented: “Sharing the same strategic plan for the expansion and strengthening of electric mobility in the Greek market with a global technology leader, such a Siemens, makes us especially happy. BMW Group has the most comprehensive range of electrified BMW and ΜΙΝΙ vehicles all over the world and by 2023, we will have 25 electric/plug-in hybrid models available for our customers. Besides the low carbon footprint of our cars, they also offer an unrivalled driving experience and the latest technologies contributing to environmental protection. Therefore, we continue to play an active role in the development of sustainable mobility, supporting the initiatives of companies with which we share the same vision”.
