Kuala Lumpur, 7th May 2021 – BMW Malaysia today introduced the New BMW 740Le xDrive M Sport – adding to BMW’s prestigious portfolio of luxury sedans that perfectly exemplify electrifying opulence.
Hans de Visser, Managing Director of BMW Group Malaysia said, “Our leading role in the world of premium luxury vehicles is not only underlined by the success we achieved last year. In the first quarter of 2021 alone, we have successfully delivered over 2,500 units of BMW, MINI and BMW Motorrad vehicles, resulting in over 25% of growth compared to the same period last year. Our role as the market leader for premium electrified vehicles is also underscored by a delivery of over 500 units of electrified BMW and MINI vehicles, recording a triple-digit growth of over 140%.”
“With over 20,000 units of our electrified vehicles on the road since we pioneered Malaysia’s shift to electromobility in 2015, we look forward to deliver on our promise to shape the mobility of the future in Malaysia once again, in the form of the new, locally assembled BMW 740Le xDrive M Sport – BMW Malaysia’s latest interpretation of Progressive Luxury,” de Visser added.
