BMW will make a decision on its own production in Russia in 2021

BMW plans to make a decision on a new business model in Russia in 2021. This was stated by Stefan Teuchert, President of BMW Group Russia, according to whom the brand will decide during this year whether to organize its own production or continue to import some of the models, as is happening now. “The fact is that the price of localized cars due to the loss of various subsidies from the state is becoming higher both for us and for the client. As a result, customers make a choice in favor of cars that are produced in other countries. However, our goal is to keep our production here. But if these cars become unprofitable to sell, the potential of this segment will diminish,” Mr. Teuchert said.

One of the necessary steps on the part of the government, he called the introduction of a differentiated approach in assessing investment in production from mass and premium brands. The fact is that the production volumes of middle-class brands are several times higher than that of premium brands, which makes it possible to reduce costs due to economies of scale. At the end of 2020, 42,721 BMW cars were sold in Russia, while the brand plans to surpass this figure this year. According to Mr. Teuchert, the Russian car market will grow by 2%, but the premium segment will grow at a faster pace.

Recall that at the beginning of 2020, Mr. Teuchert said that the BMW leadership abandoned plans to build its own plant in Russia in the near future. Then, as the main negative factors, the top manager named the growth of the utilization fee, as well as the point system proposed by the government for assessing the level of localization and differentiation of subsidies. Earlier, the German brand planned to open an enterprise for the production of full-cycle cars in the Kaliningrad region. Now BMW produces some of the models at the Avtotor plant in Kaliningrad.
