BMW's plant in Spartanburg doubles capacity for battery assmebly

With its new CEO BMW is going big on electric vehicle production. Their plant in Spartanburg, South Carolina has doubled its capacity for battery assembly and has invested $10 million to install a new batter assembly line.

It's funny to see how quickly BMW is changing their course with Oliver Zipse leading the company.

Spartanburg, SC – July 24 2019… BMW Group Plant Spartanburg has more than doubled its capacity for battery assembly prior to the debuts of the plug-in hybrid electric variants of two of its most popular models. The new, higher performing, fourth-generation batteries will be assembled on-site for the BMW X5 and BMW X3 plug-in hybrid electric variants. The 2020 BMW X5 xDrive45e Sports Activity Vehicle will begin production in Spartanburg, SC, on August 1. Start of production of the BMW X3 xDrive30e will begin in December. With the expansion of the battery facility at Plant Spartanburg in the U.S., the BMW Group is following the principle of local value creation. “We have invested approximately $10 million USD to install a new battery assembly line and expanded the area to 86,000 square feet. This means we could double the number of batteries produced if needed to meet market demand,” explains Michael Nikolaides, senior vice president engines and electrified drivetrains, BMW Group.
