BMW plant reaches 9 million vehicles milestone image

BMW, the world’s biggest luxury automaker, achieved a new milestone at its Dingolfing plant, which celebrated the production of nine million units.

After BMW Plant Dingolfing last year in March started producing one of the brand’s most exclusive models, the BMW M6 Gran Coupé, the high-performance, four-door luxury coupe was also the vehicle that celebrated the 9 million vehicles milestone.

“Each vehicle represents an individual customer wish. And with this vehicle, the nine-millionth car made in Dingolfing, we have made your customer wish come true,” commented Robert Küssel, Head of Assembly at BMW Plant Dingolfing, when handing over the BMW M6 Gran Coupé. “Today, our plant is regarded as one of the most flexible production sites in the global automotive industry,” he further explained.

The Dingolfing site has a long tradition with the 6 Series, which dates as far back as the summer of 1978, when the plant started to manufacture the BMW 635 CSi, followed a short time later by the BMW M635 CSi.

The BMW plant produces besides the 6 Series models, the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo, an will soon be followed in March by the production start of the new BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé. The addition of this new model will bring the production tally to five model series and 17 individual models.
