BMW India cut prices thanks to increased localisation

BMW India is already strongly dedicated to the Make in India initiative by increasing the level of localisation at its Chennai Plant by up to 50 per cent. They have also announced brand new prices for their range of locally produced cars.

Philipp von Sahr, president of the BMW Group India said, “The future belongs to India. If you want to benefit from the dynamics of the Indian market, you need to act today. Following our approach ‘Production follows the market’, we have accelerated our localisation programme in India. We have created a win-win situation for our customers with a wide range of exclusively authentic luxury products and now equally attractive value proposition with ‘Make in India’.”
