However, this will create a problem within the portfolio as the 6 series GC and Coupe would be priced nearly double of the GT as they are CBU. They would need to relook at pricing of the 6 series coupe and granCoupe.
There won't be any 6 Series Coupe or GC. That body style and positioning has been given to the 8 Series.
So, in effect the portfolio gets extended till 8 Series for Sedans and X7 for SUVs. Both these will be headed for India launch. The 8 Series prototype was also shown to select few in a London event.
