Our Aussie friends at CarAdvice are reporting that by the end of this year, BMW will introduce fifteen new EfficientDynamics models in Australia.

While those of us that live in the U.S. are getting, so far, only two ED models, the Australian consumers will have a wide range of choices when it comes to BMW fuel efficient vehicles.

The new models include ten new 1 Series and five 3 Series models, all of them already available in the European market as well.

In 2010, there will be twenty-three EfficientDynamics models introduced in Australia, including the new X3 and 5 Series.

In between 2006 and 2008, BMW reduced the fuel consumption of its entire fleet by 16.3 per cent, the highest number within the European premium market, followed by Volkswagen with 4.4 per cent reduction in fuel consumption.

At the Frankfurt Auto Show, BMW will showcase an impressive number of EfficientDynamics vehicles, including a new concept.

      I dont know but is it the same value as in american dollars? i mean are the same dollars as the american as the australian? Because i think that its not thats why the prices are so high

      I live in Australia, Melbourne and yes our cars are crazy expensive even with the exchange rate. And to answer Ignace i regret to tell you that NO, our cars are very far from full spec. We incure alot of tax with our cars but still i dont understand why it is so expensive! my dad recently baught his 750Li for 330 hundred thousand australian. You do the maths but thats bloody expensive in relation to you folks.
      Its a shame yes, yet the cars here sell very very well.

  • Parker Despain

    Yea, somebody find out the current exchange rate. If they are the same, thank thank you for such cheap USA pricing!

  • Ignace

    100 USD is about 82 AUD / Australian Dollar,
    so a 1 series coupë 123d with steptronic, AUD 60,864 is about USD 50,245.
    My guess is that the cars for Australian market are full spec,
    much like the cars for the US market.
    Same car in base trim costs about USD 70,000 in The Netherlands….

    Those australian dollars…I wanted to leave it in their currency, but I can edit the article and add the US equivalent. Then might as well add the EURO :)
