BMW Group selected as VIP E-Mobility Provider

BMW Group has announced its role as the VIP E-Mobility Provider for COP28 UAE, which will take place until December 12, in Dubai, UAE. As part of its contribution to COP28, BMW Group will deploy a fleet of BMW i7, BMW iX as well as BMW iX5 Hydrogen for the exclusive use of VIP guests and officials during COP28. 

BMW Group Global Head of Special Political Engagement, Christian Bahoo comments: “The COP28 UAE Presidency’s vision correlates with BMW’s commitment to technology orientation solutions and the Paris Climate Agreement. At COP28, the BMW Group will present solutions and discuss the requirements which we consider necessary to achieve the transformation to sustainable mobility.”  

The flagship BMW i7 carries the hallmark of Middle Eastern innovation and ingenuity, with key components crafted using sustainably-sourced solar electrons produced in the UAE by Emirates Global Aluminum, contributing to a significant reduction in greenhouse emissions during the production cycle.

Meanwhile, the BMW iX embodies BMW Group’s key approach of circular design. The principle is to find the best way to keep materials in the cycle – ensuring resources are not lost but retain their value for long-term use. What is more, the use of high-quality secondary materials significantly reduces BMW Group’s vehicles’ carbon footprint.
