BMW India launched the all-new X5 in India on May 29th, 2014. Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar had graced the event in Pune. Now, BMW India has commenced the assembly of the new X5 xDrive30d at their Chennai plant. With the growing demand for the vehicle, the waiting period for the X5 has now touched 3 months and initial deliveries will be commencing by the end of this month.
Mr. Philipp von Sahr, President, BMW Group India said, “The all-new BMW X5 takes things to a new level with more sportiness, spaciousness and comfort, offering customers a ‘luxury all-roader’ that meets the most exacting and varied demands. The third generation BMW X5 has received tremendous customer response and excitement since it was first displayed at the Delhi Auto Expo 2014. In fact, the first customer booking for the all-new BMW X5 was received at the expo itself. We might also consider ramping up the production to meet the huge demand in the Indian market.”
