BMW will start deliveries of its 6-Series GT in India from March 2018. The company has officially kicked-off local assembly operations at its plant in Chennai. The model has a localisation level of 50 percent.
The 6-series GT replaces the previous 5-series GT and will compete with the long-wheelbase Mercedes-Benz E-class. The 6 GT sits on a longer wheelbase than the 5-series sedan so there’s a lot of room on the inside.
The 6-series GT was launched at Auto Expo 2018 and is priced at Rs 58.9 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Initially, you can get the car in a 630i guise, powered by a 258hp, 2.0-litre, four-cylinder, turbocharged petrol motor that comes mated to an eight-speed auto transmission. Later in the year, BMW will introduce a diesel-powered 6 GT.
