In recent months, the manufacture of a large number of cars has been enhanced. This is the case of BMW that has been clear from the beginning that the new range of models has great luxury and above all, they are committed to electrification and sustainable urban displacement. Now, once they have taken the significant step to achieve the necessary ecological sustainability, they have launched the new model, BMW 7 Series, a groundbreaking range and promises strong emotions.
The first series models of the new BMW 7 Series have left the production line of the Dingolfing plant in the last hours. The new top of the range has not been manufactured with highly efficient combustion engines, but also like the all-electric BMW i7. This has been thanks to an investment of more than 300 million euros in the construction of a unique factory that has been able to apply the vision of the brand from the beginning.
The production continues its course and for now, the first models will be destined only to the exhibition, allowing that in some cases it can be used to test them. Of course, at the end of 2022, every four BMWs leaving Dingolfing are expected to incorporate an electric drive, which will increase to about 50% of the plant’s total production by the middle of this decade.
This model has several technological components of the BMW iX, both in architecture, user interface and driving assistance systems. With a redesigned aggregate assembly station, sling loop assembly, test benches for driver assistance systems and the new finishing process. The floor assemblies of the new BMW 7 Series have different geometries and vary in part, depending on the type of drive, but all can be manufactured with total flexibility in any combination.
A special model
Each of the components of the e-drive such as the high-voltage battery and the electric drive has been manufactured in Dingolfing. The Competence Center launched two new production lines, allowing the Installation produce enough e-drives for more than 500,000 electric cars per year. The workforce has also increased, from about 600 workers at the beginning of 2020 to more than 2,300 today.
