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

The X3 line-up will get the high-seller 2.0 liter diesel engine and the new 7 Series will add the 730d model.
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.
