Moving on from the 7 Series, BMW is also looking at various other new launches in India this year, including the new 3 Series sedan, a diesel variant of the X3 SUV and the X6 SUV-sedan crossover. The German car manufacturer will also start sourcing automotive components from India in a bigger way, for its global operations.
