Question Are the new LG Inverter AC available in India?


Recently I bought two 1.5 Ton Sharp Eco-Inverter Air Conditioners and are very pleased with their performance. They are true killer deals from cost vs efficiency point of view and are second best to recent LG Inverters in terms of cooling performance.

Here is my personal review link: Review of Sharp AH-XP18MV 1.5Ton Eco-Inverter Air Conditioner

I have experienced the 1.5 Ton LG Inverter (Model No: BS-Q186C7M1) at my friends place and truly speaking they have phenomenal cooling performance, even better than my Sharps and his other Hitachi Inverter. The only reason I could not opt for them was their price, INR 54K each was the best deal I got in Kolkata which exceeded my budget. Whereas my Sharp's cost INR 41K each.

Luckily it seems LG have dropped their price of newer Inverter models and one of my family member are in need of an 1.5 Ton air conditioner, I want to propose to him the newer LG Inverter (Model No: BS-Q186C8R2).

Link: LG BS-Q186C8R2 Split AC - Inverter V 1.5TR Cooling only - LG Electronics IN

The MRP as stated in the LG website link is INR 50.5K which means it should be readily available at INR 44K street price. Unfortunately after visiting a few LG exclusive showrooms, it seems they still have the older and costlier model in stock and are not sure whether the newer model will arrive any time soon.

Since this is LG sponsored, can anybody here verify when this AC will be available in Kolkata and from where we can have them? Also mentioning their street price will be of great help.

Thanks in advance!!!

Does your quoted price include installation kit? Are the ODU brackets + installation charge + stabilizer all included in this price?

If there is an installation kit provided what are the length of the pipes. 3 or 3.5 or 4 meters.

Kindly confirm.

It seems in Kolkata we have to wait for a month or two to have this model readily available. Some photos will be of great help. Here or in TE.

Thanks in advance!!!

Re: Are the new LG Inverter AC available in India?

Thanks for the info I read your review that’s way informative…Cheers for that! I must say before going through this thread I didn't have any knowledge about LG inverter AC, I’ll now search about it and if I find some relevant things to share will do so definitely.

The price is just for the IDU+ODU. There is a sticker on the box that says "Installation kit not included". LG rep says, for inverter models, we dont give installation kit. So i still need to buy Installation kit, Stabiliser, Brackets and pay for installation.
I do not have many pics yet. I have attached the one i have currently. Will post more once available.
Unit is made in Thailand- it makes me happy

I too read about this on some forums, but its better to be safe rather than sorry. So i am getting one. Job of stabilizer is to provide almost constant power to AC and i don't see how inverter AC will handle voltage fluctuations by itself.
