BMW World Malaysia opens to public from 17 April and runs till 19 April 2015, featuring the largest display of premium automobiles represented by the BMW Group.

BMW today introduced the all-new BMW 2 Series Active Tourer, the new BMW X6 and the all-new BMW i8 that we drooled over (amongst other things) at the recent Bangkok International Motor Show (BIMS 2015).

MINI introduced its new performance-bred MINI John Cooper Works, new MINI Cooper 5-Door and locally-assembled MINI Cooper Countryman.

Some delicious two-wheelers were introduced by BMW Motorrad —   BMW S 1000 RR and the new BMW R 1200R. The drool-worthy BMW Concept Roadster motorcycle is also on parade, for the first time in Malaysia.

One of the key highlights of the event is the BMW 328 Hommage concept car, making its Asian debut. The concept car is the ultimate tribute to the legendary BMW 328 racing car, considered to be the most successful (and best-looking) sports car of the 1930s.

Alan Harris, Managing Director and CEO of BMW Group Malaysia said that the opening of BMW World in Malaysia sets an unprecendented standard in the Malaysian automotive industry and will further solidify the company’s position as the leading premium car brand in the country.

BMW Group Malaysia has performed commendably despite the uncertainty over the implementation of GST. The group delivered a total of 1,729 BMW, MINI and Motorrad vehicles in the first three months of 2015. Post-GST, Harris hopes buyers have a clearer conscience now when deciding on their next vehicle purchase (and hopes it’s a BMW, MINI or Motorrad!).

The premium automaker is revising all of its BMW and MINI vehicles, lower by up to 1.9%, while BMW Motorrad will be lower by up to 18%. Attributed to the benefits gained from the implementation of GST.
