BMW India has discontinued a few variants of its 1-Series and 3-Series sedans. The company, recently, released the updated 2015 price list of its entire model range and while the prices were increased, the most surprising was to see disappearance of petrol variants of a few company cars. The petrol variants of 1-Series and 3-Series have been axed, while diesel models of several others have been phased out.

The company's focus is more on towards the variants that are turning out to be best-seller in their respective line-up. In the updated price list for 2015, the prices of all the models have been increased because of increased excise duty and manufacturer-level price increase. On the other hand, the company hasn't officially accepted omission, but it is being said that it has taken such a step either because of poor demand or due to the impending facelift version. To be particular, the phased out variants from the 2015 BMW price list are - 116i Prestige, 328i Sport Plus, 520d Modern Line, 525d Luxury Plus, X1 20d in both Expedition and Sport Line variants. However, this omission doesn't come as surprise really due to buyer's recent infatuation with diesel variants of high-end luxury cars.

BMW India now offers petrol variants in only performance-based cars or its flagship car - 7-Series - in the country. To be specific, the petrol variants are available with top-spec variants of the 7 Series, Z4 Roadster and their new lineup of M cars in India. The company has recently announced the launch of its i8 electric hybrid supercar in the country on February 18, 2015.
