How a BMW automobile is created
Up to 750 premium standard BMW vehicles are produced at the Leipzig plant with the aid of highly qualified employees and innovative production technology. Each BMW automobile is individually produced and tailor-made to the client's wishes and preferences. Several thousand parts in many different colours and sizes and thousands of production stages are necessary before the vehicle is ready to start what is often a long journey to the client.
Every traditional BMW vehicle built in the Leipzig plant passes through the pressing plant, body shop, paint shop and assembly, and sophisticated logistics are vital to the whole production system. It takes less than 40 hours to build a BMW in Leipzig including the completion of rigorous quality checks.
In recent years, the BMW Group has invested approximately 400 million euros to enlarge the plant. In addition to standard car production, the plant now produces electric cars with CFK lightweight bodies. The series production of the BMW i3 began here in September 2013 and production of the BMW i8 began in May 2014.
This tour will allow Summit participants to take a behind-the-scenes look at the BMW Leipzig Plant including the unique central building, designed by the famous architect Zaha Hadid.
