Asian Carmakers Corporation, the exclusive distributor of BMW vehicles in the Philippines, may have just launched the all-new X3 last night but its initial stock of 10 units has already been depleted.
"They've all been spoken for," said Asian Carmakers president Bobby Rosales. "The X3 is not a volume-driven vehicle but with the number of inquiries we've been getting, we won't be surprised if we can sell 100 units this year."
Rosales added that a shipment of 20 more units is expected to arrive at the end of the month to satisfy those who are eager to get their hands on BMW's latest local offering.
One of the main selling points of the all-new X3 is its frugal fuel consumption. Besides being equipped with an already fuel-efficient 2-liter diesel engine that puts out 184hp and 380Nm of torque while consuming just 5.6 liters of fuel for every 100 kilometers, the all-new X3 also comes with the rapidly-becoming-popular Auto Start Stop function and Brake Energy Regeneration system.
The all-new BMW X3 is currently being sold at an introductory price of P4.490 million.
If you're more of a sports convertible kind of person and a compact luxury crossover just isn't for you, then you'll be glad to know that the next BMW to arrive on our shores in a few months time will be the 6-Series convertible, according to Pauline Gonzales of Asian Carmakers' corporate communications department.
