Report: BMW wants to boost China production by 80%

BMW is hoping to increase its annual production capacity in China by 80 percent. The German automaker has asked the Chinese government for permission to expand production from 200,000 units to 360,000.

Currently, BMW and its Chinese joint venture, BMW Brilliance Automotive Ltd., have two factories in the northeast China city of Shenyang. The plants currently produce the BMW 3 Series, 5 Series and the X1.

Why does BMW need permission. Well, the ministry needs to asses the plant’s potential impact on the Shenyang environment.

To put things into perspective, China has now become BMW’s largest market in the world. For the first four months of 2012, BMW sold a total of 107,211 locally build and imported models in the region.
