The fellows at IAAblog are bringing us the first photos of the BMW X1 production line at the Leipzig plant. The X1 entered production on September 1st and it’s the only BMW plant that will manufacture the entry level SAV.
At the moment, 75 BMW X1 were produced in Leipzig on a daily base, but production will increase to 300 X1 daily by the end of this year. An X1 needs 40 hours from the first welding to the finished product.
The official launch takes place on October 24 and according to BMW, pre-order numbers have been more than satisfactory.
BMW X1 in production form will be unveiled next week at the Frankfurt Auto Show.
