BMW 528i, 128i, 328i and the Z4 have made it in the Top 10 luxury cars with the lowest pollution score.  EPA determines the ratings by examining each car's Air Pollution Score and Carbon Footprint ratings.

The Air Pollution Score represents the amount of health-damaging and smog-forming airborne pollutants a vehicle emits. Among these are hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxide, particulate matter, carbon monoxide, and formaldehyde. Scoring is based on a 10-point scale, with 10 representing a zero-emissions vehicle, meaning higher numbers are better.
