The fleet consists of electric, diesel, and hybrid cars, as well as a range of motorcycles and bicycles. They are required to achieve LOCOG’s strict carbon dioxide emission target of 120g/km. BMW will provide a total of 4000 vehicles. ““BMW’s Olympic fleet needs to be varied to deal with the complex operational demands of the Games time effort. We were selected as a partner based on our ability to provide such a diverse fleet that could achieve the challenging emissions threshold as set by LOCOG…”, said Tim Abbot, MD of BMW UK.
The above news brings back memories of the 2011 Standard Chartered Marathon, in which BMW was a partner. If they are partnered again this year, I will not miss the buffet spread at the end of the race at the BMW booth in Padang.
