This was reported by Bloomberg.

The Bavarian automaker has invested about half a billion euros in its largest factory in Europe. Thus, BMW plans to increase the production of components for its electric vehicles in order to better compete with the American Tesla, which is slowly conquering the European market.

BMW plans to build eight more production lines for the assembly of battery modules and electric motors, later four more of the same lines will be added. It is expected that by 2022 the plant in Dingolfing, Germany, will be able to produce such a number of spare parts, which is enough for 500,000 electric cars per year.

It is reported that the first car to receive new components from the new production line will be the BMW iX3 crossover, after which these parts will begin to be received by the i4 sedan and the BMW iNext SUV.
