Production Of The New BMW X5 At Its Plant In Spartanburg Started
|   Friday, August 09, 2013
BMW opened a new chapter in the evolution of its X5model. The third generation of the Bavarian SUV officially entered production. As before, the Spartanburg plant in the United States is responsible for the making the model, a plant where BMW has produced the X5 since 1999 when the first generation was introduced.

The first X5 which left the assembly line is a copy painted in Mineral White. Under the hood is the already popular tri-turbo 3.0-liter diesel, recognizable by his call sign, the xDrive M50d.
The car will go to a dealer in Eastern Europe to be used as a demonstration vehicle for prospective customers.

In contrast, the last X5 of the second generation which left the band's production plant in Spartanburg is a gasoline version, xDrive50i. The 4.0 liter V8 engine guarantees more than 400 horsepower and impressive performances. The last copy of the past generation left the American factory not long before the new X5 made its presence announced. The last X5 of the second generation will arrive in the BMW Museum in Munich.
BMW X5's story began in 1999. From then until now the Spartanburg plant gave rise to more than 1.3 million copies. More than half of these, approximately 730,000 units, were of the second generation of the SUV.

"July is a pivotal month, setting the trend for the second half of the year, and the numbers show the trend is with us," stated Ludwig Willisch, president and CEO of BMW of North America, in a statement. "We have a strong line-up of new vehicles to launch in the months ahead led by the all-new X5, which started production today, and the beautiful BMW 4 Series Coupe which arrives in the fall."
