ENVIRONMENTAL NOTE Environmental damage due to operating conditions and personal driving style
The pollutant emission of your vehicle is directly related to the way you operate your vehicle.

Help to protect the environment by operating your vehicle in an environmentally responsible manner. Please observe the following recommendations on operating conditions and personal driving style.

Operating conditions:

  • Make sure that the tire pressure is correct.
  • Do not carry any unnecessary weight (e.g. roof luggage racks once you no longer need them).
  • Adhere to the service intervals.

    A regularly serviced vehicle will contribute to environmental protection.

  • Always have maintenance work carried out at a qualified specialist workshop.

Personal driving style:

  • Do not depress the accelerator pedal when starting the engine.
  • Do not warm up the engine while the vehicle is stationary.
  • Drive carefully and maintain a suitable distance from the vehicle in front.
  • Avoid frequent, sudden acceleration and braking.
  • Change gear in good time and use each gear only up to 2/3 of its maximum engine speed.
  • Switch off the engine in stationary traffic, e.g. by using the ECO start/stop function.
  • Drive fuel-efficiently. Observe the ECO display for a fuel-efficient driving style.

Environmental issues and recommendations: It is recommended that you re-use or recycle materials instead of just disposing of them.

The relevant environmental guidelines and regulations serve to protect the environment and must be strictly observed.
