BMW recently announced a 300 million Euro investment to the Leipzig factory in order to increase the annual production capacity by 100,000 units till 2020.
However, the investement won’t be used strictly for the EV lineup production increase. Actually, BMW i production is going to be affected by a minor part of the budget. Precisely, electrified vehicles production should rise from 130 to 200 units per day.
Anyway, exactly electric cars production capacity will be increased at first. BMW claims that they experience a steady increase of demand for such vehicles, that has to be met. Now that includes BMW i3 hatchback and BMW i8 hybrid coupe, though, the company promise to take a close look to the demand for new electric cars that should soon be unveiled.
