Prepare to wave goodbye to the current BMW 3 Series. The production of the all-new model gets underway at BMW’s Munich plant.
Seeing as this model is the most important volume-produced model from the BMW Group as well as the biggest-selling model in the entire premium segment, BMW decided to make the new 3er in the Munich plant up to the highest standards. So no contractors here.
The production launch of the sixth-generation BMW 3 Series marks the start of a new era at the Munich home plant. The investments have flowed, among other areas, into innovative production equipment and state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies. They form part of a long-term strategy aimed at strengthening the competitiveness and future viability of the Munich plant and thereby safeguarding 9,000 workplaces in the Bavarian state capital.
See, this is how Germany has such sturdy economy!
Thanks to the standardised manufacturing processes and efficient production systems, the ramp-up at the Munich plant will be very short. Just three months after the start of production of the BMW 3 Series Sedan, peak output of 680 units a day will be achieved. Total output at the plant will then exceed 900 vehicles per day.
The Munich plant makes 3 Series for all regions in the world where the car is offered.
