BMW to launch New Z4 and 7-Series petrol in India

BMW is set to launch its two-seater convertible roadster Z4 in India in October this year.

The company is planning to sell 30-40 units of the car per annum, which is expected to be priced between Rs. 50 lakh and Rs. 60 lakh.

Sporting a 3-litre diesel engine, the new Z4 sports car, launched last December in Europe, now comes with a folding hard roof.

While this has made the car heavier, it has increased its appeal. Performance parameters include a top speed of 250 kph and a 0-100 kph in 5.8 seconds.

BMW India will also launch a petrol variant of its 7-series cars with a six-cylinder engine in September.

MW’s current portfolio in India comprises cars from the 3 series, 5 series, 6 series, 7 series, X6, X5 and X3.
