BMW Group Malaysia has announced that three more CKD models in its range have received customised Energy Efficient Vehicle (EEV) status incentives from the government. They are the F10 BMW 5 Series, F25 BMW X3 and F BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo (3 GT). This follows similar incentives given to the 1 Series and 3 Series, announced in February.
“Today, I am pleased to announce that we have now received similar incentives for the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo, BMW X3 and BMW 5 Series. We will be extending this benefit by the Malaysian government to our customers and we will be revising the prices for the vehicles lower,” said Han Sang Yun, MD and CEO of BMW Group Malaysia.
Of course, with EEV status incentives comes a lower price, and on-the-road without insurance prices (with five years unlimited mileage warranty, free scheduled service programme, BMW Tyre Warranty) are up to 10.4% lower, and up to RM39k lower. The list above shows the before and after EEV prices, including those previously announced for the 1 and 3.
Introduced here in mid-2014, the 3 GT is available here as a 320d diesel and a 328i petrol, and prices are up to RM19k lower now. The F25 X3 LCI has been around since August 2014, and is sold as a 20i and 20d. Both variants are RM29k cheaper.
The F10 5 Series LCI range, which recently received 2016 model year updates announced last month, sees price drops of RM37k, RM38k and RM39k for the 520d M Sport, 520i M Sport and 528i M Sport, respectively. The 520d sees the biggest percentage drop in price today (10.4%) while the 528i’s price decline is the biggest in absolute terms (RM39k). The 2016 MY update saw exterior, interior and tech items added with no price increase.
Below are the latest price and spec sheets for all the models and variants involved in today’s announcement. Read more about February’s announcement for the 1er and 3er here. Stay tuned for more
