BMW Group plant Dingolfing to create up to 2,000 jobs in e-mobility
The mobility of tomorrow is being turned into reality to a large extent in Dingolfing, a showcase for many future topics in automotive engineering, including the BMW Group's center of excellence for the production of electric drive systems.
The plant will continue to pioneer future topics such as e-mobility and autonomous driving and in this context will increase the number of Dingolfing-based jobs in the production of e-drive components several times over in the next few years – to a total of up to 2,000 (for a total of about 18,000 workers).
In 2018, the share of electrified models more than doubled year-on-year, to around 9% of the total production output. Almost 30,000 plug-in hybrids of the BMW 5 Series and 7 Series rolled off the assembly lines at the Dingolfing plant. A total of around 330,000 vehicles were built at the location in 2018, including the new BMW 8 Series’ coupe and convertible variants.
Thanks to these figures, Dingolfing was once again the BMW Group's largest European production site in terms of production output.
