BMW is one of the three German luxury car majors present in India. The Bavarian auto giant comes with a range of urn out models on offer for the Indian customers. Like every year, in 2018 as well, BMW launched a couple of exciting cars in the country. Its subsidiary MINI too brought some interesting models here. Here, in the BMW & MINI Yearbook 2018, we give you a comprehensive look at the two brand’s overall activity in the year.
The most important car BMW launched in India in 2018 was the BMW M2 Competition. Priced at Rs 79.90 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the BMW M2 Competition gets power from a 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine.

Apart from that, other launches from the carmaker include the BMW 6-Series GT and BMW X3.
BMW is also readying its new 3-Series sedan for India launch. The new BMW 3-Series sedan has been spotted testing in the country already. Apart from that, the automaker has also announced the launch date of the upcoming BMW X7 flagship luxury SUV. The new BMW i3 electric car too has started testing in India ahead of its scheduled next year launch. The German luxury car giant launched its online sales platform a few weeks ago, which was another interesting fact about the brand. MINI too followed the same.
