TEHRAN, June 24 (Mehr News Agency) - BMW's 2007 models will hit the nation's roads this year, and advance purchases of series one through seven along with the X3 class have already begun, the executive director of BMW of Iran told the Persian service of ISNA on Saturday.
"The Z4, X5, and Z8 models will not be available in Iran's auto market due to their production at U.S. assembly lines," he noted, adding that the warranty services and parts will only be accessible for imported models purchased through the company in Iran.
During Iranian calendar year 1384 (March 2005-March 2006), over 10,000 passenger cars and SUVs were imported to the domestic market, of which 3,000 were BMWs, ranking second after Toyota.
The BMW 318 model was priced at Rls.445 million and a 2000cc version was sold at Rls.585 million. BMW sales for the year 1385 are predicted to hit 3,000 again.
