BMW will have all four models’ combined and city mpg ratings fall by 1 mpg, while highway estimates will drop 1 to 4 mpg depending on the model.
“Fuel economy values matter to consumers and automakers,” Christopher Grundler, director of EPA’s office of transportation and air quality, said in a statement. “To provide consumers with the most accurate, reliable and repeatable fuel economy values, we are continuing to strengthen our oversight to ensure fair competition among automakers.”
BMW joins a list of automakers that have had inaccurate fuel economy labels. The EPA has also ordered Mercedes-Benz, Hyundai, Kia and Ford to lower fuel economy ratings after discrepancies were found in mpg values on several models.
