BMW Group Plant Dingolfing.
As the BMW Group’s “lead plant” for the luxury class, Plant Dingolfing has traditionally produced BMW’s large model series. Since the early 1970s, every generation of the BMW 5 Series, 6 Series and 7 Series has been built here, including M, plug-in hybrid and Individual variants. In recent years, these have been joined by the 4 Series models, as well as the updated BMW 8 Series. Since July 2021, the plant in Lower Bavaria has also produced the company’s new technology and innovation flagship: the fully-electric BMW iX. With a total of six BMW model series produced on site, Plant Dingolfing is one of the world’s most flexible car plants.
Around 17,000 people currently work at the site and 850 apprentices are being trained in 15 occupations. This makes the BMW Group site in Dingolfing not only by far the region's biggest employer, but also one of the country's largest industrial production sites and vocational training facilities. A sophisticated commuter bus system brings employees from all over Lower Bavaria to their workplace in Dingolfing and back home again – with more than 250 buses on the roads every day, clocking up a total of over 40,000 km.
In addition to cars, vehicle components such as pressed parts and chassis and drive systems are also produced in Dingolfing. Component plant 02.20 is also home to the company-wide Competence Centre for E-Drive Production, which supplies the BMW Group’s vehicle plants worldwide with electric motors and high-voltage batteries for production of plug-in hybrids and pure electric models.
The car bodies for all Rolls-Royce models are also built at the site. The so-called Dynamics Centre, a large storage and transshipment facility at the heart of the BMW Group’s central aftersales logistics, provides the global BMW and MINI retail organisation with original parts and equipment.
