Change of management at Plants Munich, Spartanburg and Oxford, effective 1 September


Munich / Oxford / Spartanburg. The BMW Group’s production locations in Munich, Oxford and Spartanburg will have new plant directors from 1 September. With the retirement of Knudt Flor (61), Robert Engelhorn (51) will take over the management of what is currently the BMW Group’s largest production location, in Spartanburg, USA, which produces the overwhelming majority of BMW X vehicles. Last year, despite restrictions due to the pandemic, its production volume totalled more than 360,000 vehicles. Engelhorn is currently in charge of the main plant in Munich.

He hands over to Peter Weber (49), the current head of Plants Oxford (MINI) and Swindon (pressings and body components). Weber brings his expertise from handling the launch of the fully-electric MINI Cooper SE* to Plant Munich, where the first BMW i4* will come off the production line this autumn. Markus Grüneisl is moving to the UK to take over from Weber as the future head of both plants. The 45-year-old is currently responsible for areas including the BMW production system, process excellence and plant digitalisation at BMW Group headquarters.


“All three are proven experts with extensive process know-how, years of experience and, not least, excellent leadership qualities. I am certain these colleagues will rigorously implement our key future projects – the transformation of electromobility, digitalisation and sustainability – and continue our plants’ success stories,” said Milan Nedeljković, member of the Board of Management of BMW AG responsible for Production.


MINI Cooper SE: Fuel consumption combined: 0.0 l/100 km; power consumption combined: 16.9-14.9 kWh/100 km NEDC; 17.6-15.2 kWh/100 km WLTP; CO2 emissions combined: 0 g/km

BMW i4: Since this is a pre-production model, homologation figures are not yet available.

CO2 emission information.

Fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures and power consumption and range were measured using the methods required according to Regulation VO (EC) 2007/715 as amended. They refer to vehicles on the German automotive market. For ranges, the NEDC figures take into account differences in the selected wheel and tyre size, while the WLTP figures take into account the effects of any optional equipment.

All figures have already been calculated based on the new WLTP test cycle. NEDC figures listed have been adjusted to the NEDC measurement method where applicable. WLTP values are used as a basis for the assessment of taxes and other vehicle-related duties which are (also) based on CO2 emissions and, where applicable, for the purposes of vehicle-specific subsidies. Further information on the WLTP and NEDC measurement procedures is also available at

For further details of the official fuel consumption figures and official specific CO2 emissions of new cars, please refer to the “Manual on the fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and power consumption of new cars”, available at sales outlets free of charge, from Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH (DAT), Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen and at
