BMW X7 Announced

BMW is expanding its family of vehicles once again, and this time the company is going bigger than ever before.

The new BMW X7 will sit atop the range of the German brand’s crossovers, and it will compete directly with the Mercedes-Benz GL. BMW also announced a $1 billion investment into the company’s plant located in Spartanburg, SC., where the X7 will be built.

“We will expand the plant’s annual production capacity by 50% up to 450,000 vehicles by the end of 2016. Today’s capacity is around 300,000 vehicles. This investment will also create an additional 800 jobs, increasing the total workforce to 8,800 on site,” said Norbert Reithofer, Chairman of the Board of Management for BMW Group.

The South Carolina plant currently builds all of BMW’s crossovers including the X3, X5 and X6, and will begin production of the new X4 starting today.
