BMW launched the M5 at the 11th AutoExpo 2012 for an exshowroom price of Rs. 95,90,000 and will be brought in as a CBU ( Completely Built Unit).
Dr. Andreas Schaaf, President, BMW Group India added, “The new BMW M5 is a high performance athlete in a business suit and is a unique blend of two worlds – performance and luxury. BMW M stands for a unique philosophy of driving pleasure – high performance, sophisticated sporting flair and aesthetics. M cars are designed to be fun. And I guarantee, the new BMW M5 is a lot of fun.”
While BMW Vision EfficientDynamics showcases BMW’s idea of sustainable motoring, BMW Vision ConnectedDrive is an exhibition of ‘intelligent networking of driver, vehicle and the environment in the modern world’. An simple example would be how, using the real-time traffic data service BMW ConnectedDrive customers can plan their travel routes in advance with any Internet-enabled device. BMW also has some more radical ideas in the ConnectedDrive umbrella, but that is for another day.
