Is BMW a Foreign Car?

2020 BMW M5 Driving Down Highway

When shopping for a brand new car, many Pekin drivers have a lot of questions. Some are interested in knowing where their cars are made. If you’ve ever wondered, “Is BMW a foreign car?” you’re certainly not alone. BMW stands for Bayerische Motoren Werke. BMW is a German-owned company, and it has been since it made its debut decades ago. 

Where is BMW Made?

Is BMW foreign? The answer is certainly yes. However, that does not mean that all vehicles are produced in Germany. So even if an automaker is headquartered in one place, oftentimes they have factories in other locations. Some may be even closer than you may think! So, what country makes BMW?

Currently, there are several ways to answer the question, “Where is BMW made?” Today, complete BMW automobiles are manufactured in five different countries. Germany, Mexico, China, South Africa, and the USA are all home to BMW plants. Did you know that the BMW manufacturing center in Greer, SC is the largest BMW production facility in existence? 

Which BMW Vehicles Are Made in the U.S.?

In the U.S., SUVs and crossovers are some of the most popular vehicles on the market. It’s no surprise that BMW has made them a priority. BMW’s U.S. plant was built in 1994, and to keep up with the demand for its beloved vehicles, it was recently renovated. Currently, the full X Series lineup is produced in America.

With seven different offerings, there’s an American-made BMW for everyone to get excited about. If you would like additional information about the X Series, do not hesitate to contact the team at BMW of Peoria.
