BMW Might Build A Plant In Russia

2011 BMW 7-Series

According to the CEO Norbert Reithofer, the German automaker BMW is thinking about the possibility to build a plant in Russia as part of the company’s ongoing global expansion into the emerging markets. This new plant might be built in one of the country’s industrial clusters, in either St. Petersburg or Kaluga, where there are already other car plants from various manufacturers.

If this factory will exist, BMW will make a lot of models there, like the X1, X5 and X6 crossovers, along with the 3-, 5- and 7-Series sedans. At the moment, the cars are assembled under license in Kaliningrad by Avtotor, a local partner of the company.
