Local BMW Plant Spartanburg Begins Preparations For Production Of The All-New BMW X5

The 2019 BMW X5 is available at our BMW dealership in Columbia, SC.

Still In A Class Of Its Own

The upcoming all-new BMW X5 will be the 4th generation of this highly successful model. The first generation of the BMW X5 was released nearly 20 years ago, and it quickly became an automotive icon. The original X5 was the first BMW X model, and its success launched the X-model family that American drivers would quickly fall in love with.

Not only was the first BMW X5 the originator of the BMW X Model lineup, but it also singlehandedly created the Sports Activity Vehicle® class. The previous designation of “Sport Utility Vehicle” was wholly inadequate for a vehicle that had both dynamic handling and off-road capability.

The BMW X5 has been one of the Top 3 BMW models in sales since 2001. This success has contributed to several expansions of the BMW Plant in Spartanburg, South Carolina, which have made it the largest BMW plant in the world. Of course, many jobs have been created for South Carolina residents due to the success of the X Models.

American Craftsmanship & German Engineering: A Recipe For Worldwide Success

The upcoming BMW X5 is the 10th X Model produced at the Spartanburg plant. This Columbia-area plant is so important to the worldwide success of the entire X Model lineup that BMW has officially designated it the “Global Center of Competence” for the X Models.

The all-new BMW X5 is not the first hotly anticipated new BMW X Model to come out of the Spartanburg plant this year. In fact, the all-new BMW X4 was released in April to widespread praise.

The X-Factor

In addition to the BMW X5, BMW Plant Spartanburg also produces the BMW X3, X4, and X6. The range of highly-desirable X Models that the plant produces and the introduction of multiple all-new models ensures continued production growth for the Spartanburg plant. In fact, production is projected to increase to the full yearly capacity of 450,000 units within the next several years.

Exponential Growth

With the success of the BMW X5 and the other X Models, the number of South Carolina residents employed at the BMW Plant Spartanburg will continue to grow. When the plant first opened in 1994, 500 Americans were employed there. Now, over 10,000 people are employed at the plant. Another 1,000 jobs will be created in the next 3 years. A study has also shown that every job at the plant results in 9 more jobs being created elsewhere in the U.S.

The success of the nearby Spartanburg plant has ensured that the BMW of Columbia showroom is stocked with many impressive BMW X5 models. Come in and check them out for yourself at your earliest convenience.
