BMW’s new X1 is a global success. So much so that the brand has called for additional production capacity following strong demand in several key markets.

BMW, in fact, will expand production of the new X1 by producing it in another production facility in Born in the Netherlands. The latter will share production of the X1 for the global markets with BMW’s Regensburg facility. The Netherlands facility has built three Mini models since its inception in 2014. The X1, then, will be the fourth BMW group model to roll off the production line.

With eight different models built on a single line, production volumes at the Regensburg plant have risen significantly in recent years. As a consequence of this growth, the plant will share the X1 production with the facility in Born. Over its lifecycle, the main volume of the X1 will still be produced in Regensburg, however.

The second-gen BMW X1 is on sale across several markets including India. Here the crossover is doing well against its competition, thanks to its practical, quality interiors and strong engine options.
