2011 BMW X3 Sports Activity Vehicle India Launch In May-June, Specifications, Features, Price


Its been in the news for quite a long time about BMW’s plans of introducing the BMW X3 in the Indian automobile market and the time has come as during May & June this year the car will hit the market indeed. We are surprised to see BMW proceeding at such a high pace as it launched BMW 320d Performance Edition a couple of days back, then announced of the BMW 6 Series launch and now the X3.


The next addition BMW X3 Sports Activity Vehicle is supposed to bring a significant change in the company’s portfolio and sales figures since reports say that the car will be imported as CKD unit and not as CBU unit thereby reducing the overall cost per product. This strategy certainly will help the brand price it competitive enough in the market and expectedly attain a better growth.

From June 2011 the company will start assembling the car inspite of the current ambiguous stand held by the Indian government which is supposed to be defined in the 2011 Union Budget.

This new planned approach clearly shows the hunger of BMW India for more and more sales and with chances of success, Audi and Mercedes-Benz will have to now think over their strategies and take some aggressive steps.
