Leipzig. The BMW Group is investing a further €200 million in the future of its plant in Leipzig, eastern Germany. The building work will begin in early 2018 and include an extension of the paint shop and alternations in the bodyshop and assembly areas. The work is scheduled to finish in 2020, with the facilities being put to use immediately. This move will ensure Plant Leipzig is prepared for the production of future BMW model generations.

“We are delighted by the ongoing high demand for the BMW vehicles we produce here in Leipzig. This further development of the plant is an important move and means we will have the necessary competitive structures in place to continue building vehicles here in the future,” commented Plant Director Hans-Peter Kemser. In addition to increased production flexibility, the extension of Plant Leipzig also lays the foundations for a possible future growth in volume.

The central element of the building works is the extension of the paint shop including the integration of the newest paint technologies, which will set new standards in efficiency and sustainability.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
