BMW Group produces 10 million BMW 3 Series Sedans

BMW Group produces 10 million BMW 3 Series Sedans
Core model manufactured at four plants worldwide
Landmark vehicle made at BMW Group Plant Munich

Munich. The ten millionth BMW 3 Series Sedan has rolled off the production lines at BMW Group Plant Munich. The landmark vehicle is the latest milestone in the 40-year success story of the BMW 3 Series. So far the BMW Group has produced more than 14 million cars of this model series, more than half of them BMW 3 Series Sedans. Production of the new BMW 3 Series Sedan was launched just recently, in July of this year. The landmark ten millionth vehicle is a BMW 320d in Imperial Blue.

Hermann Bohrer, Plant Director at the BMW Group facility in Munich, commented: “The success story of the BMW 3 Series started here in Plant Munich and is now reaching a very special highpoint here as well. The fact that this landmark vehicle was produced at our plant is a particular honour for us and makes me very proud indeed of my team.”

As the only facility to have produced all six generations of the BMW 3 Series, BMW Group Plant Munich is seen as the leader for all the other facilities producing the same model series. To meet the many requirements of the various generations, the plant had to rise to new challenges each time. The constant modernisation and enhancement of production systems means today’s customers have a multitude of model variants and equipment options to choose from and can tailor their cars almost entirely to their personal specifications.

BMW Group Plant Munich currently produces 1,000 cars a day, half of them BMW 3 Series. To meet strong demand, the model series is also manufactured at Plants Regens-burg (Germany), Rosslyn (South Africa) and Tiexi (China).

A success story begins

In 1970 BMW Group developers began working on a new model series that would later become the most successful BMW. To this day each new generation of the BMW 3 Series has consistently fulfilled the same requirements, coupling everyday versatility with contemporary design and a sporty driving experience. After five years of development work, production of the international bestseller was finally launched in June 1975. Just a few years later the first variants were added to the range as well. With each new generation, the BMW 3 Series has led the way and established itself as the van-guard of its class.

FYI the 10,000,000 car finished production September 7th 2015. I know this because I took delivery and a factory tour on this date and our tour guide mentioned that today is a special day for that reason.

And a thank you to all those line workers who build, manage and ensure the quality of our cars!- I have had owned 5 3 series (All E46) and now have a 2004 ZHP E46 Coupe and a 435 Gran Coupe- Have had very good luck with my BMWs (but that doesn't mean that there cant be improvement BTW- too much wind noise on the 3/4 series IMO) But I digress. Congratulations to all at BMW!
