Avtotor has started the assembly production of BMW X4

Interfax – Kaliningrad based Avtotor factory has started the assembly production of BMW X4 on 01.06.2015. BMW has not disclosed the planned production volume. Avtotor currently makes the assembly production of X1, X3, X5 and X6, besides BMW 3,5 and 7 series.

As one may remember, previously the Russian press had written about a joint factory establishment in Kaliningrad, by Avtotor and BMW. The planned annual production capacity of the €350 million project was announced as 50,000 vehicles and the localisation rate as 48%. However, BMW officials had announced postponement to the project in May, for an undetermined period of time, showing the instability in the Russian market as the reason behind the decision.

8334 BMW have been sold in Russia, within the January-April period.
