Battery pack and electric motor production secured.
The battery packs and traction motors will be supplied from Dingolfing and neighboring Landshut plants in Germany.
According to the press release, BMW is currently investing a medium, double-digit million euro amount in Dingolfing to handle battery pack production for the all-electric MINI.
"On an area of around 6,000 square meters, a production facility for battery modules and a battery assembly line will be built in the western part of the Dingolfing component plant 02.20. Currently, the first systems are being constructed and tested successively."
"Due to its growing importance and its key role in the production network, the 02.20 component factory now bears the name “BMW Group competence center for electric drive production”.
Plant 02.20 is one of the oldest parts of the Dingolfing plant group. Since 2015, the Dingolfing plant has been producing batteries and electric motors for plug-in hybrid models of the BMW Group."
