INDIA: German luxury car maker BMW has delisted the X6 and X4 SUVs from its official website in India, causing speculation among fans of the brand.
The X6, a 5-seater SUV priced between Rs. 1.04 and Rs. 1.11 crores, made its debut in June 2020. Meanwhile, the X4, a crossover SUV that sits between the X3 and X5 models, was updated last year.
Despite removing the two models from the website, BMW has yet to release an official statement regarding their discontinuation.
However, the company has unveiled its third-generation BMW X1, which will be locally manufactured in Chennai.
The new SUV is available in five different colours and is powered by a 1,995 cc diesel engine with a maximum power output of 145 bhp and 360 Nm of torque.
The X6 was last updated with the 50 Jahre M Edition, which was priced at 1.11 crores, while the X4 also received a special edition, the 50 Jahre M Edition, which was priced at 74.90 lakhs. BMW introduced both special editions in October 2022.
The X4 was previously available in two trim levels, the xDrive30i and xDrive30d, powered by 2.0- and 3.0-litre engines, respectively.
The latter produced 282 BHP and 650 Nm of torque, while the former produced 248 BHP and 350 Nm.
Although the reasons for delisting the X6 and X4 remain unclear, fans of the brand are hopeful for an official statement from BMW soon.
The company’s recent unveiling of the third-generation BMW X1 and its commitment to local manufacturing in India demonstrate a continued commitment to the market.
