Kronschnabl confirmed that the new BMW X1 model will also be available for the Indian customers from December 2010. Both the models will be imported as completely knocked down (CKD) units and will be assembled at its Chennai plant. “Though we haven’t yet started bookings, we have got a phenomenal response from the customer survey in India for both the models,” he added further.
