München. At its meeting today, the Supervisory Board of BMW AG appointed Dr.-Ing. Andreas Wendt (60) as the new Board of Management Member for Purchasing and Supplier Network, effective 1 October 2018. Wendt, a mechanical engineer, has been Director of the BMW Group’s largest German plant in Dingolfing, since early 2017. Prior to that, Wendt managed the company’s Regensburg plant for eight years.

 

Wendt began his career at BMW Group in 2002, as head of Strategy Development Production. He then went on to manage Production “Suspension and Drive Train Components” for Plants Landshut, Dingolfing and Berlin. From May 2006 until moving to Regensburg, Wendt was director of the BMW Group’s largest engine plant in Steyr, Austria.

 

“Throughout all stages of his BMW Group career, Andreas Wendt has been a driving force for innovation. With his outstanding expertise in managing quality and complexity, he has always set new benchmarks,” stated Dr. Norbert Reithofer, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of BMW AG. Reithofer added: “The Purchasing and Supplier Network is more important than ever to our commercial success. The ongoing internationalisation of our business and growing volatility greatly increase the level of complexity and demand even greater flexibility from our supplier network and Purchasing division. What is more, we can only achieve the required innovation needed in our focus areas of electromobility, digitalisation and autonomous driving by stepping up our partnerships with suppliers. The appointment of Andreas Wendt puts the purchasing division in an excellent position to meet all these demands.”

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/.
