Singapore. BMW Asia, Performance Motors Limited (PML), and Performance Munich Autos (PMA) are excited to kick off 2021 with the launch of #BMWWorldSG on 15 January 2021. For the first time ever, BMW customers and enthusiasts in Singapore are invited to experience the brand and see the latest models in person at both dealerships, as well as online via an immersive virtual experience accessible via the BMW Digital Showroom – https://bethefirst.bmw.com.sg/

 

#BMWWorldSG is also the setting for the ASEAN showcase of the first-ever BMW iX3, the brand’s first pure electric Sports Activity Vehicle, and the Singapore premiere of the much anticipated all-new BMW M3 Competition and BMW M4 Competition. Other highlights include the BMW 116i hatchback and the BMW 530e, the plug-in hybrid electric variant of the new BMW 5 Series Sedan.

 

“We have an opportunity in 2021 to innovate and change how we engage with our customers,” said Christopher Wehner, Managing Director, BMW Group Asia. “#BMWWorldSG is unlike any brand experience event we’ve held in Singapore in the past. Both showroom setups, as well as the virtual event space, will remind you of being at a motor show. Whether you visit us in person or online, you can walk through six different zones, participate in exciting games, and explore all that the BMW brand has to offer in Singapore.”

 

Mr. Wehner continued, “2021 also marks the year when we will fulfill our promise to provide customers in Singapore the Power of Choice, the ability to choose the drivetrain for their particular needs, with the BMW X3. We currently offer the BMW X3 in petrol and plug-in hybrid electric variants, but come Q3, we’ll bring customers in Singapore the first-ever BMW iX3, a fully electric BMW X3. We invite you to see the BMW iX3 in person at the PML showroom during #BMWWorldSG.”

 

“We’re also extremely excited to premiere the all-new BMW M3 Competition and BMW M4 Competition in Singapore at #BMWWorldSG,” said Arnt Bayer, Managing Director, Performance Motors Limited and Performance Munich Autos. “35 years after the first iconic BMW M3 took to the stage, BMW M presents the latest generation of its high performance cars. The all-new BMW M3 Competition and BMW M4 Competition are striking vehicles designed to deliver thrilling performance and make powerful and bold expressions. We’re confident our BMW M customers and fans are just as eager as we are to experience the exhilaration of both vehicles and look forward to it in the coming months.”

 

Mr. Bayer added, “#BMWWorldSG is also a great opportunity for us to showcase the breadth and versatility of the BMW range. Today, we are also introducing the BMW 116i hatchback and the new BMW 530e Sedan. Both these models feature innovative driver assistance systems, as well as the latest in connectivity with BMW Operating System 7.0.”

 

The BMW 116i is the newest addition in the BMW 1 Series line up in Singapore, as well as the third BMW model with a Certificate of Entitlement (COE) in the Category A band. Notable features include the BMW Live Cockpit Professional system with two 10.25-inch screens, as well as the Parking Assistant package including the innovative Reversing Assistant.

 

The BMW 5 Series is the most successful business sedan in its segment, and the BMW 530e Sedan is the latest plug-in hybrid variant. The newly improved 184 hp four-cylinder petrol engine is partnered by an electric drive unit – producing a maximum output of 80 kW/109 hp – that is integrated into the eight-speed Steptronic transmission. For an added dose of sporting flair under particularly keen acceleration, the joint output of the two power sources can be increased by an additional 30 kW/40 hp to a maximum 215 kW/292 hp for up to 10 seconds. This XtraBoost feature is included as standard on the new BMW 530e Sedan. With the latest generation of BMW eDrive technology, the BMW 530e has an electric range of 54-61 km (WLTP).
