BMW will reduce the model range of the Russian assembly

BMW stops the production of five models at the Avtotor Kaliningrad plant due to economic inexpediency. As a result, the enterprise will produce only three BMW models in 2021, and the total volume will be about 12 thousand cars, the chairman of the board of directors of Avtotor Holding said. According to the publication "Autoreview", in April only large crossovers BMW X5, X6 and X7 will remain on the conveyor of "Avtotor".

All other models will be fully imported - these are the 5th and 7th series sedans, as well as X1, X3 and X4 crossovers. Moreover, even for the X5 / X6 / X7 family, the possibility of supplying of any of the versions directly from the American plant is reserved, that is, subsequently BMW can close completely the Russian assembly. Thus, BMW cars may soon noticeably rise in price - unless, of course, the Russian representative office comes to an agreement with the headquarters on favorable purchase prices for cars in fixed configurations, as it was with Kaliningrad cars.

But it is precisely the favorable prices for locally assembled cars and their availability in dealerships allowed BMW to keep the leadership in terms of sales in the Russian premium segment for the last two years. Localized cars accounted for almost a half of BMW brand sales in our country. Meanwhile, not so long ago, BMW was hatching plans to build its own plant in Russia, but a special investment contract submitted for consideration to the Ministry of Industry and Trade was not signed.
