EXTERNAL VALUES ALSO MATTER.
Plastic opens up a wide range of possibilities, because it gives our designers substantially more creative freedom than conventional materials such as steel or aluminium. The material is about 50 percent lighter than steel, resistant to minor damage and does not corrode.
Through decades of experience, our plastics specialists at BMW Group Plant Landshut have acquired unique expertise in manufacturing and applying paint to large-scale plastic components: In 2021, they produced around 500,000 painted plastic exterior components in 45 standard and 200 individual colours. Around 2,000 exterior components leave the Landshut plant every workday for the vehicle plants.
