Munich, Germany – The BMW Group has received an order for more than 240,000 diesel engines from American law enforcement manufacturer Carbon Motors Corp. The agreement calls for delivery of inline six-cylinder diesel engines, complete with cooling, exhaust gas system, and automatic transmissions.

“We announced the expansion of our powertrain system sales business as part of the company’s Strategy Number One,” said Ian Robertson, chairman of the board of management of BMW AG. “Today’s agreement with Carbon Motors marks another important milestone along this route, with others to follow. BMW Group diesel engines have a clear lead over the competition when it comes to fuel consumption, emissions and performance. In this way, we will also help reduce the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of more than 240,000 U.S. law enforcement vehicles by up to 40 per cent over the coming years.”

Founded in 2003, Carbon Motors is the world’s first manufacturer of purpose-built law enforcement vehicles.
