One of the world’s leading car infotainment manufacturer Blaupunkt has forayed into the entry level car music system segment with the launch of its two new models – Tokyo 110 and Manchester 110. Both the products have been priced aggressively at Rs 4990 and Rs 5990 respectively. These are single DIN radios and boast of common features like MP3, WMA, USB, AUX-in and iPod control.

Commenting on the launch Preeti Bakshi, Marketing Head, Blaupunkt India said, “With Tokyo and Manchester, Blaupunkt has once again demonstrated its ability to provide unmatched value across its product portfolio, be it in the high-end multimedia navigation space, sound solutions or with low priced single din radios like these. After a phenomenal response worldwide, we expect these products to be very successful in the Indian market. These models raise the bar on value, while lowering the price point for a quality car radio, allowing a larger segment of customers to enjoy Blaupunkt’s signature sound.”

With the launch of these two new music systems Blaupunkt aims to target the second hand car buyers along with taxi fleet owners as this segment is now keen on obtaining good music systems but with a budgeted price range.
