Pre-production of BMW's latest Sports Activity Vehicle has started at their Spartanburg plant in the States. During the forthcoming 12 months, the new X7 from BMW will go through a series of tests under partly severe conditions before its world premiere.
Knudt Flor, head of the BMW Group Spartanburg commented “We are proud to produce the BMW X7 here in Spartanburg, the home of our X models. This is a very special vehicle and our employees are looking forward to yet a further member of the X family. Together with the BMW X7, a total of five BMW X models will be exported from Spartanburg to all four corners of the globe.”
Homologation, registration and diverse testing purposes, including extreme condition testing in the desert regions of Death Valley or on the ice and snow covered slopes of Scandinavia are carried out after the pre-production models are handed over by the Spartanburg plant to the development department specialists.
BMW X models for the USA and the global market are produced in Spartanburg, a number which has now reached record breaking production figures of more than 411,000 units in 2016 with around 3.9 million vehicles produced in total by the plant since 1994. Every day, 1,400 BMW X3, X4, X5 and X6 models are released from the assembly line, with the BMW X7 soon to be added to their impressive array of X models.
