Automaker BMW is investing 400 million euros in its largest factory in Dingolfing, Germany. The money is used for adjustments that are needed to make the fully electrically powered SUV iNext at the location in the long term. The production of the sporty off-road vehicle should start there in 2021.
The iNext should roll off the same tire in Dingolfing as where hybrid vehicles and cars with combustion engines are now being produced. By betting on flexible production structures, BMW says they are optimally equipped to meet current market requirements.
Dingolfing in Bavaria is the largest BMW factory in Europe. The approximately 18,000 employees ensure that 1,500 cars roll off the tire every day.
