|For the fifth year running, Fiat Automobiles is the brand which 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 also ranked first as 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.
This is an important achievement and a continuing improvement: over the last 5 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 the European leader, and the development of innovative technology such as eco:Drive, an application which encourages a driving style which is more responsible and eco-compatible, 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.
