The company, which today launched the all-new BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe priced at Rs 86.40 lakh, also said it will bring three more new products by March 2013.
"By the end of 2013, we will start assembly of completely knocked down (CKD) units of the 1 series at our Chennai plant for the Indian market," President of BMW Group India Philipp von Sahr told PTI.
He said while a product like the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe is mainly aimed at enhancing the brand equity of the company, the company has also plans to bring other products to drive volumes.
"In the next few days the new X6 will be launched. In January we will have the new X1 and in March the new 7 Series will be launched," Sahr said.
Although the current market conditions are tough, he said the company has decided to hike prices of products.
"It is a tough economical situation...we will increase the prices of our products by up to 10 per cent depending on models by 2013," he said without elaborating.
