BMW is investing 400 million euros in a new vehicle assembly at the main plant in Munich and move its European production activities for internal combustion engines at the Steyr and Hams Hall locations.
In Munich, following the expansion of the body shop and construction of a new resource-efficient paint shop between 2016 and 2018, BMW will be investing around 400 million euros in a new vehicle assembly between now and 2026.
The new assembly in Munich will be built on the site currently used for engine production.
As a result, the combustion engines with four, six, eight and 12 cylinders produced there will be manufactured at the company’s locations in Steyr in Austria and Hams Hall in the UK.
Engine production will be relocated from Munich in stages by no later than 2024.
