QUẢNG NAM — Local car maker Trường Hải Auto company (THACO) will introduce the BMW X2 model in Việt Nam, just one year after the vehicle first debuted at the Los Angeles Auto Show in the US in 2017.

Thaco said the newest cross-over model and other imported BMW X1, BMW 118i and BMW 218i have been shipped to Việt Nam for the official curtain-raising event this September.

It also said BMW X2 will offer three classes including Base, M-Sport and M Sport X for Vietnamese customers.

According to Thaco, further models — notably the BMW 7 Series 740Li, 750Li and M760Li X Drive — will be arriving in Việt Nam for show-off events later this year.

Thaco has been the new official importer of BMW and MINI vehicles in Việt Nam following a co-operation deal with the German giant car maker signed in January of 2018.

The price of the newly imported BMW car models have yet unveiled.

According to BMW, the 3-series car model is the most successful in Việt Nam. A total of 6,400 cars are now on the road.

BMW has sold more than 10,500 units in Việt Nam since entering the market 20 years ago.

The biggest local car maker currently manufactures and distributes Korea’s Kia model, Japan’s Mazda and France’s Peugeot.

Thaco plans to build three more plants with a total annual capacity of 215,000 trucks, vans and commercial cars, and achieve a localisation ratio of 16 per to 46 per cent. — VNS
