BMW has set a new milestone by rolling out the 1,00,000th Made-in-India car from its Chennai plant. Having said that, BMW Individual 740Li M Sport Edition received this special badge. The automaker’s top priority is sustainability. Thus, the plant runs on 100 percent green electricity.
“It is a day of great joy and pride for us as the 1,00,000th ‘Made-in-India’ car drives out of our assembly lines. This accomplishment is a result of the team’s hard work, efficiency and consistency which ensures that every BMW Cars or MINI car locally produced here in Chennai is of the same international quality standards as any other BMW plant across the world. Highly skilled employees, advanced manufacturing processes along with state-of-the-art technology and a strong focus on sustainability provided the necessary ingredients for this success. At the same time, increased localisation of up to 50 per cent and a robust collaboration with local supplier partners has created more value for everyone in the ecosystem. BMW Group Plant Chennai looks forward to raising the bar in sustainable manufacturing excellence further as the India story grows,” as commented by Thomas Dose, Managing Director, BMW Group Plant Chennai.
