BMW’s involvement with this year’s Olympic games has been announced about two months ago. The Bavarians have even given us a taster on the sort of cars they will be contributing with.
We’re now seeing the followup, this time there’s more cars, more pictures and a few added details just for the fun of it.
The lineup may have expanded but overall, the same environment-oriented choices have been made. No M Division or M Performance products are in the fleet.
That’s not really a bad thing. BMW makes the fun cars but efficiency certainly has a lot going for it these days.
With BMW engineerings expertise on engines being at an all time high, even the fuel sipping diesels make for fun cars to drive.
That’s a good thing, since most of the cars chosen to be part of the special sporting competition is made up of diesels.
The vehicles that are involved with the 2012 Olympic games and don’t burn oil are either electric or hybrids. Here’s a list of everything taking part:
1 Series ActiveE
320d Efficient Dynamics
520d Efficient Dynamics
5-Series Active Hybrid
X3 xDrive 20d
X5 xDrive 30d
On top of these there’s two cars from a certain British subsidiary, the MINI E and the MINI Countryman Cooper D and a couple of motorbikes.
In all, BMW will offer some 2.700 vehicles, all of which you’ll find on this list and none of them will be caught in shot without an athlete in or near them.
