Our Plant


As the BMW Group’s largest engine plant worldwide, BMW Group Plant Steyr builds three, four and six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines, which are fitted in BMW and MINI cars at our vehicle plants around the world. In addition, the housings for innovative electric drives are manufactured here. The Steyr development site is the Group-wide competence center for diesel engines and also develops electric drives and components for e-mobility.

An engine rolls off the assembly line on average every 13 seconds – with a total of 354,461 diesel and 736,404 petrol engines produced in 2021. The plant achieves an output of more than 5,500 engines per workday at peak times.

All of this is possible thanks to our roughly 4,500 dedicated and highly-skilled employees, working with state-of-the-art production technology, who make BMW Group Plant Steyr a champion engine-builder.
