Three Million BMWs Made in Leipzig Plant
Sixteen years after the plant went on stream, the 3,000,000th BMW made inLeipzig Plant in Saxony has just rolled off the production lines
Sixteen years after the plant went on stream, the 3,000,000th BMW made inLeipzig Plant in Saxony has just rolled off the production lines a BMW M240i Convertible in Sunset Orange. The latest milestone vehicle was duly dispatched to its new owner, a customer in Bavaria, the home of BMW. Lined up end to end, the 3,000,000 vehicles made by Plant Leipzig would stretch about 13,000 kilometres , roughly the flight distance from Leipzig to Australia’s northernmost city, Darwin.
The first BMW “made in Leipzig” rolled off the production line in March 2005, a BMW 320i. Six years later the 1,000,000th car was made, in December 2011, an Alpine White BMW 116d that was presented to the non-profit organisation Joblinge. The 2,000,000th car came even faster, in October 2016, a BMW i3 (fuel consumption combined: 0.0 l/100 km; electricity consumption combined: 13.1 kWh/100 km; CO2 emissions combined: 0 g/km) in Protonic Blue for a customer in the USA.
Along with the BMW i3, Plant Leipzig currently makes the BMW 1 Series, BMW 2 Series and its most powerful model, the BMW M2 Competition (fuel consumption combined: 10.0 – 9.9 l/100 km; CO2 emissions combined: 228 – 225 g/km). Output totals more than 1,000 vehicles a day and reached a good 200,000 units last year.
