February 12, 2019 (Spartanburg, SC)… BMW Group announced today the addition of the first-ever BMW X3 M and BMW X4 M models to the production line-up at Plant Spartanburg in South Carolina.  The two all-new vehicles will bring the total number of BMW X models produced in the United States to nine, solidifying the plant’s position as the global center of competence for BMW X models. 

 

The BMW X3 M is the first-ever high-performance variant of BMW’s popular and best-selling mid-sized Sports Activity Vehicle to be developed by BMW M GmbH.  The first-ever BMW X4 M also joins the BMW lineup as a high-performing Sports Activity Coupe.  Both vehicles feature a newly developed M-tuned TwinPower Turbo in-line six cylinder engine and all of the performance, agility, and precision for which BMW M cars are renowned, underpinned by sophisticated, model-specific chassis technology tuned to match the engine’s high power and the traction enhancing capabilities of the M xDrive all-wheel-drive system.  Production begins in April 2019.

 

“The addition of these two all-new models plus the first-ever BMW X7, which began production last December, is a testament to the performance, passion and pride of the more than 11,000 people working at Plant Spartanburg and serves to further underscore BMW’s commitment in the U.S.,” said Knudt Flor, President & CEO, BMW Manufacturing Co., LLC.  “Since the BMW X5 was first introduced, creating the premium SAV segment in 1999, Plant Spartanburg has been BMW’s global center of competence for X models and continues to be so today.”     

 

In 2018, BMW X models represented more than 52% of BMW sales in the U.S.  Plant Spartanburg produces X3, X4, X5, X5 M X6, X6 M and X7 models for the U.S. market and the world.  Nearly 70% of BMW X models produced at Plant Spartanburg are exported to more than 120 markets worldwide.  To date, BMW Group has invested almost $10 billion in the plant, which has undergone five major expansions and now has a production capacity of up to 450,000 vehicles annually, making it the largest BMW Plant in the world.  Plant Spartanburg will celebrate 25 years of production later this year.
