German stalwart BMW has rolled out its first ever 6
Series Gran Turismo from its plant in Chennai. The 6 Series Gran Turismo was
launched earlier this month at the 2018 Auto Expo. The company launched the car
as a locally produced petrol variant, the BMW 630i Gran Turismo Sport Line.
Dr. Jochen Stallkamp, Managing Director, BMW Group
Plant Chennai, said, “BMW Group Plant Chennai is proud to roll-out the
first-ever BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo in India. The BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo is
not only a unique concept but also makes a significant mark through its
advanced engineering, technology and innovations. Now locally-produced in
India, it will create a novel segment and set new benchmarks in the Indian luxury
car segment. As always, BMW Group Plant Chennai is committed to deliver the
best-in-class products for discerning customers who value the highest level of
quality in every detail.”
The BMW Group Plant in Chennai also produces the
BMW 3 Series, 3 series GT, 5 Series, 7 Series, X1, X3 and the X5. Local
production of the Mini Countryman will begin in this year as well. The company
has designated a 'Production follows the market' approach and BMW Group India
has systematically accelerated the localisation program here in India. The
plant at present has been able to achieve upto 50pc localisation.
BMW plans on launching a diesel powered variant of
the 6 Series Gran Turismo in India later in 2018.
