BMW India has said that its entire product range has now become BS-VI compliant. The complete petrol portfolio is already BS-VI compliant while the diesel portfolio will be converted ahead of the stipulated timeline. The plant in Chennai has started local production of BS-VI diesel variants of the BMW 5 Series and the BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo. The new BS-VI avatar of BMW X1 will also hit the shop-floor soon, the company said.
Rudratej Singh, President and Chief Executive Officer, BMW Group India said, “Early start of BS-VI production is a strategic call we are taking to meet the unprecedented demand for our new products. Today, BMW India customers have the choice of buying a BS-VI car across the entire product portfolio. The present BMW range is extremely attractive because of its unique position with the latest products, the newest technology as well as superbly attractive ownership packages on limited stocks of BS-IV variants.”
The company said that beginning next year, BMW India will increase prices of BS-VI models by up to six percent.
