Is the Bugatti Chiron the last non-environmentally friendly hypercar? On paper the Chiron has a completely disadvantage in terms of CO2 emissions when compared to Range Rover SPORT – SVR, the new Honda NSX, Porsche 911 Turbo S (991.2), BMW 5-Series 520d xDrive (2017), Peugeot 108 (2017) and Toyota Prius (2017).
Driving 1.000 Km per year, the Bugatti emits about 516.000 g/km CO2, the Range Rover SPORT – SVR emits about 298.000; The new Honda NSX 228.000; Porsche 911 Turbo S (991.2) 212.000; BMW 5-Series 520d xDrive (2017) 124.000; Peugeot 108 (2017) 99.000; and the Toyota Prius (2017) 22.000 CO2.
And even though that in real life there is a small chance to drive 20.000 kilometres per year in a Chiron, because most of the time it’s in a showrooms, the situation is very different when take as example cars to be driven every day, like the Toyota Prius (2017) and BMW 5-Series 520d xDrive (2017).
20.000 km per year in a Toyota Prius (2017) emits 440.000 CO2, the Peugeot 108 (2017) 1.980,000 CO2 and the BMW 2.480.000 CO2, and keeping the same 1.000 km per year in the Chiron – which is a lot for a hypercar – emits the same 516.000 g/km. So it represents Toyota, Peugeot and BMW could pollute more than Bugatti.
So what does it mean? It means proportion.
