BMW India

Headquartered in Gurgaon (National Capital Region) BMW India is a 100% subsidiary of the BMW Group. The initial investment in India is 1.1 billion Indian Rupees.

The wide range of BMW in India include the establishment of a production plant in Chennai (Tamil Nadu) and development of a dealer organisation across all metropolitan centres of the country. [/

In medium term, BMW India will employ around 200 people; up to 600 additional jobs will be created in the dealer and service network

On 29 March 2007, BMW India officially opened its production plant in Chennai. The BMW Plant Chennai produces the BMW 3 Series and BMW 5 Series Sedans in petrol and diesel variants and has a capacity to produce 3000 units per year on a single shift basis.

Presently, 12 dealers represent BMW in the Indian market; Bird Automotive (Gurgaon, NCR), Deutschen Motoren (New Delhi); Navnit Motors (Mumbai), Infinity Cars (South Mumbai); Krishna Automobiles (Chandigarh); Navnit Motors (Bangalore), Delta Motors (Hyderabad), Kun Exclusive (Chennai), Bavaria Motors (Pune), OSL Prestige (Kolkata), Parsoli Motors (Ahmedabad) and Koyenco Prestige (Kochi) . Owing to an exuberant growth potential, BMW is hopeful of multiplying its annual sales volume and has already chalked out an extensive dealer strategy to support its plans. Phase I of the Dealer network expansion plan includes 12 dealers covering all metropolitan centres of the country by the end of 2008.

BMW dealerships will display the BMW 3 Series (325i, 320i and 320d, 320d Highline) and BMW 5 Series (525i, 530i, 520d, 530d and 530d Highline) that are produced at the BMW Plant Chennai.

The New BMW M3Coupé, BMW M5 Sedan, BMW M6 Coupé, BMW M6 Convertible, BMW 7 Series Individual and BMW 6 Series Individual can be ordered at BMW India dealerships

BMW India has partnered with Bajaj Allianz General Insurance for offering motor insurance and with ICICI Bank to offer customised financial solutions and ORIX Auto Infrastructure Services Limited for leasing services for its customers.

BMW India has also established an International Purchasing Office (IPO) at its Headquarters in Gurgaon. The IPO will focus on the development of exports from India to the BMW Group International Production Network and there work towards increasing the sourcing share from India over the next years. The activities include the identification and assessment of potential suppliers taking into account BMW’s requirements for quality, technology and logistics. The IPO will explore procurement of production material (components) as well as IT and Engineering Services.

If this includes discounted pricing for BMW's, then its a killer deal. Leasing offers just so many advantages to corporates & business owners in terms of tax savings and releasing capital. I am left wondering at its lack of popularity!

Talking 320d highline

does anyone here have any idea about how much the emi for a 320d on a 3yr lease is gonna work out and also the buyback rate. If it's reasonable as I am expecting it to be then I think I might just go in for this deal.
