BMW’s Mexico plans could include Electric Vehicles
BMW CEO Oliver Zipse last month said crossover production will come to Mexico, without revealing specific plans.
BMW’s Mexico assembly plant, which opened in 2019, builds gasoline-powered BMW 2 Series and 3 Series sedans. But it operated at just 39 percent of its 175,000-vehicle capacity last year.
BMW’s $1 billion Mexico assembly plant could become the automaker’s first dedicated electric vehicle production center.
In the first stage of the electrification of the BMW Group, the company had for sale the group’s first fully electric vehicle and the group’s first plug-in hybrid vehicle, the BMW i3, and the BMW i8, respectively.
As part of BMW’s celebrations for its 50th anniversary, the car company announced that five new M versions will be coming out. This time we focus on the first fully electric M model, the BMW i4 M50.
