The increase in profits is due particularly to the strong increase in volumes as well as the positive development of our other business fields and divisions. At the same time, higher fixed costs, caused by our growth, significant investments in electrification and digitalisation, and currency effects had a negative impact on the result,” says Lutz Meschke, Deputy Chairman of the

Actual figures will vary as they are dependent on many factors, including without limitation: individual driving style, road and traffic conditions, environmental conditions, fuel quality, a vehicle’s or battery’s condition, load and use. Extra features and accessories (eg: equipment, wheels or tyres used etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics and can also affect the consumption, emission, range and performance values of a vehicle. For hybrid or electric vehicles, published charging times (hour/minutes) are estimated using the vehicle’s charging equipment and European charging facilities, with the battery temperature in optimum condition. CO2 emissions can also be generated at the power source when vehicles are being recharged, unless 100% renewable energy is used.
Generally, consumption, emissions, kilometre range and charging times will vary from the published figures in real world Australian driving and charging conditions. Published figures should only be used for the purpose of comparison between vehicles. Please contact an Official
