A few weeks ago, BMW led to the debut of the new generation X2, which will also be offered in a 100% electric version of the iX2. The German automaker announced that production of the new Coupé SUV at the Regensburg plant (Regensburg), Germany, began. The first copies of the new model rolled off the assembly line.
From now on, the plant will flexibly produce different types of powertrains within a single production line: from combustion engine models to plug-in hybrids to fully electric vehicles. Up to 1,000 cars (BMW X1, X2 and 1 Series) leave this plant every day. The additional capacity will allow the plant to operate in three shifts, which is good news for its future.
