Bentley with 120g/km of CO2 by 2012


Bentley wants to reach 120g/km of CO2 by 2012. That’s why, in 2009 Bentley will introduce its 1st flex-fuel engine and by 2012 everything they produce will be capable of running on bio-fuels. The ultra-luxury British brand, which is owned by Volkswagen, intends to achieve at least a fifteen percent reduction in CO2 emissions by 2012.
New engine management systems and improved transmissions will cut around 15 percent from tailpipe emissions, which currently average 450g/km across the range.
