The Auto-Hold Function is not available in BMW X1 model, however, there is a similar kind of feature, (named as Auto Start/Stop), is available in this car. In this system, the four-cylinder diesel engine (with 6 -speed manual transmission) automatically shuts-down when the vehicle is stationary, for example at a red light or in a jam, when the driver activates the clutch and switches to neutral. The engine restarts as soon as the clutch is activated again. This system significantly reduces fuel consumption especially in city traffic conditions.
The car will be launched in India in the second half of this year. Thank You,
BMWX1 comes equipped with engine immobilizer and anti theft alarm. So, the engine will start only after matching a special code in your key fob and if the key doesn't matches according to the code, anti theft alarm starts sounding, which helps to protect your car from thieves.
Instead of saying straight YES, I would like to elaborate a few things I know about....
The exemption in Excise is available (100%) to physically handicap persons (mentally sound) only if they buy a car specially designed for handicap. The procedure to be followed is that such a person has to apply directly to the manufacturing company. He will be personally called & interviewed & the car will be modified suitably/specially for him. Besides, the modification/s, such cars are necessarily with auto transmission gears.
Second, RTO will register the car in his name & issue driving license only if a certificate from CMO (Chief Medical Officer) is issued, specifying the disability of the person concerned, and that, he will, however, be able to drive so, and so & so car (make). Please contact you nearest dealer for the same, you can also follow the site to know the information regarding dealers in your city. Thank you.
