While BMW may be centered in Germany, the automaker has a decent foundation inside North America that could get even stronger. With the new generation 3-Series hitting the market as we breathe and plans for newer, even smaller models, the company is looking to set up shop in Mexico. If built, the plant would initially be responsible for the iconic sedan and slowly elevate production as time went on.
According to an Automotive News article, BMW is currently in the search process for the exact location of the future facility. So far, there are apparently as many as four spots where the plant could go and a decision should be made by next year. Production should begin as early as 2016 at which point, a “refresh” of the 3-Series could occur. After a while, capacity of the Mexican plant should reach up to 150,000 units annually.
