BMW unveils X5 in India

Top two variants of the model are priced at ₹82.4 lakh

German luxury carmaker BMW has introduced the all-new BMW X5 in India with a starting ex-showroom price of ₹72.9 lakh.

The top two variants are priced at ₹82.4 lakh ex-showroom all India.

Locally produced in Chennai, the all-new BMW X5 will be available in a diesel variant at BMW dealerships from Thursday onwards. The petrol variant would be available later in 2019, the company said.

“BMW established the Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) segment with the launch of BMW X5 in 1999. The BMW X5 has been the best-selling car in this segment for many years and has become one of our most successful models. This fourth generation SAV embodies this model’s typical characteristics — versatility, sovereignty and luxury,” said Hans-Christian Baertels, president (acting), BMW Group India.

“The all-new BMW X5 is bound to add another chapter to this success story by introducing a new interpretation of the letter X. Combining an elegant and strong design with supreme on and off-road ability, the all-new BMW X5 has an even greater blend of premium luxury performance, technology and comfort,” he added.

The company, which reported a 13% growth in sales last year, is expecting the momentum to continue. So far this year, it has launched three models and eight more would be introduced to help the segment grow, Dr Baertels.
