Dealer network, Plant Chennai and BMW Group India corporate office operational in accordance with government guidelines; industry-first hygiene packages ensure safer drive and motorcycle ride
BMW Group India today restarted operations in accordance with government guidelines, across its business verticals and functioning centres. The company said consumers can restart to safely explore and experience the complete range of BMW, MINI and BMW Motorrad products at BMW Group India dealerships. Local production at Plant Chennai has also resumed with less than 50 % of the regular workforce catering to the production demand in the country.
The company said it has implemented precautionary measures to create a safe working environment, including remodelling of offices, plant and dealership layouts to ensure strict social distancing. Individual protective gear, hand sanitiser and regular health check-up for all employees have been provided. Standard operating procedures have been implemented to ensure periodic surface sanitisation of the highest level in all working areas, including offices, plant, showrooms and workshops.
BMW, MINI and BMW Motorrad dealerships offer personalised service in a safe environment with complete peace of mind, the BMW Group reiterated. New and serviced vehicles will be handed over to customers at the location of their choice, and vehicles will be pre-sanitised before each delivery. Test drive vehicles are also available, and can be booked at respective dealerships, with vehicles being completely sanitised before each test drive. Repair and maintenance of cars will be carried out by service engineers wearing personal protective gear at all times.
BMW Group India said that on the purchase of every new BMW Motorrad vehicle, a complimentary BMW Motorrad Care Kit will be provided until 31 July 2020. This is to ensure that the riders are able to enjoy the ‘Ultimate Riding Machine.’
Arlindo Teixeira, acting President, BMW Group India, said it brings joy to finally restart operations at dealerships, Plant Chennai and corporate office. Customers and prospects can now explore, test-drive and purchase their favourite vehicles in a safe and sanitised environment at dealerships, he added. Teixeira noted that introduction of industry-first hygiene packages for BMW, MINI and BMW Motorrad aims at enabling customers to care for their vehicles from the comfort of their home.
