BMW's Munich Plant Converts to EV Only for 2027

Starting in 2026, BMW Group’s Munich plant will manufacture the Neue Klasse sedan, followed by the production of all-electric models only the following year.

The Munich plant will be the first location in the BMW Group’s production network to have successfully completed the transformation to E-mobility from the end of 2027.

“The Munich plant is an excellent example of our ability to adapt. We are investing € 650 million here and will produce exclusively all-electric vehicles in our parent plant from the end of 2027,” says Milan Nedeljković, Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, Production, in a statement. “Last year alone, six all-electric models went into production. At the same time, we also set a production record, proving that we are simultaneously able to both deliver and shape the future in our production network.”

The Munich plant first started manufacturing plug-in hybrid models from the BMW 3 Series in 2015 and in 2021, the BMW i4 became the first all-electric vehicle to be produced on the same production line. 

The €650 million of investment comprises four buildings, including a new vehicle assembly line with logistics areas and a new body shop.
