62mpg+ BMW X1 on the way

BMW is to introduce a new fuel-efficient X1 to its range.

The two-wheel-drive X1 sDrive20d Efficient Dynamics Edition is powered by a 161bhp four-cylinder turbodiesel engine, it averages more than 62mpg and emits 119g/km of carbon dioxide.

Modifications over the standard X1 to achieve the high mpg include brake-energy regeneration, engine stop-start, lighter alloy wheels and reduced-rolling-resistance tyres.

Pricing and on-sale dates are expected to be announced tomorrow (Friday).
