Waiting List For X5 Plug-in Hybrid Extends To Q2 2017, High Demand For 330e

The BMW Group Malaysia’s range of i Performance plug-in hybrid models – the X5 xDrive40e and 330e – has been very well received, and the latest information by BMW Group Malaysia suggests that the order banks allocated for this year for both the X5 and 3 Series plug-in hybrid variants have already been sold out.

As you might have already heard, this year’s allocation for the RM388,800 X5 xDrive40e is already sold out. Book one today and you can only expect to get your plug-in hybrid 313 hp and 450 Nm X5 sometime in the second quarter of 2017.

When asked if a similarly long waiting list is building up for the 252 hp and 420 Nm 330e, BMW Group Malaysia says while there is strong demand for the 330e, there is still a healthy stock level for the 330e, while sales and delivery numbers are growing from strength to strength and healthy order banks and vehicles are available.

Speaking at the signing of a partnership between BMW Group Malaysia and GreenTech Malaysia at the 7th International Greentech & Eco Products Exhibition and Conference Malaysia (IGEM) earlier today, Mr. Sashi Ambi, Head of Corporate Communications, BMW Group Malaysia said:

“As of today, the demand for both the BMW X5 xDrive40e and BMW 330e continues to grow. We have already begun delivering both vehicles to our customers; the BMW X5 xDrive40e currently has a wait list until Q2 2017 while the order bank for the BMW 330e is healthily growing. We are confident that the progress of these vehicles will continue to be positive.”

The partnership between BMW Group Malaysia and GreenTech Malaysia now allows BMW owners to access GreenTech Malaysia’s ChargEV facilities to charge their vehicles using their BMW ChargeNow cards.
