BMW builds the sixth millionth car in the US

BMW car is celebrating a major milestone: the German company has built six million cars in the United States since its opening. its factory in Spartanburg, SCin 1994. The landmark car is an eye-catcher X6 CODE was sent directly to the company’s history collection.

BMW made the announcement exactly 30 years after breaking ground on construction of its first facility in the United States. Since then, the company notes that it has invested nearly $12 billion in the plant and exports about 60% of Spartanburg-built cars to 120 global markets.

While hitting the six million mark in less than 30 years is impressive, what’s even more surprising is how quickly BMW has increased factory output. The millionth Spartanburg built BMW (a Z4 M Roadster) was built in February 2006, about 12 years after the facility opened. The second million car (one X3) rolled off the assembly line in January 2012, three parts per million (one X5 CODE) was made in March 2015 and the fifth millionth competition (an X5 M competition) was completed in June 2020. It took more than two years for BMW to build one million cars.

Notice a pattern? Most of the important cars are SUVs, which is something the Spartanburg factory has specialized in for several years, and they are especially popular. It’s no coincidence that the six millionth BMW with the “made in the United States” label is a X6 CODE painted in Java Green Metallic and equipped with a V8 engine, twin turbocharger, 4.4 liter capacity, capacity of 600 horsepower. It is equipped with a black leather interior.

But certainly not always BMW SUVs come out. The first BMW made in South Carolina was the E36-generation 318i, which predates the brand’s first SUV, X5.
