German luxury carmaker BMW revealed its premium small car Mini at the Infinity Cars showroom in Mumbai on Thursday to provide for hatchback customers. India has become the 100th country where Mini is sold.
Mini will be available between Rs 25 lakh and Rs 35.9 lakh with a 1598 cc petrol engine as an inclusive built-up unit. It gives a mileage of 7 to 8 km per litre. The latest premium car has already received over 100 bookings and delivery would start from May.
BMW India president Andreas Schaaf told that “We will deliver 20 to 30 cars a month from May.”
Mini, which was once under the British ownership and currently part of the BMW Group, was first showcased in India during the Auto Expo in New Delhi prior this year.
Schaaf added that “With the launch of Mini, we have brought the world’s most exciting premium small car brand to India. It is more than just a car. Mini expresses a whole generation’s approach to life-it is extrovert and open. No other brand exhibits attributes and essence of a modern urban lifestyle like Mini, and there is no doubt that it is one of the most emotional auto brands.”
With more than two million Mini cars sold across the globe, the BMW Group said that it would like to develop its market in India.
