RusAutoNews.- The 2.5 millionth automobile, a flagship BMW X7 SUV, has rolled off the conveyor of the Kaliningrad Avtotor car plant. The X7 model has been manufactured at the factory since June 2019. A total number of 261,000 BMW automobiles have been produced at Avtotor since October 1999.

Remarkably, Kia Seltos crossovers, Hyundai Sonata front-wheel-drive sedans and Hyundai Mighty EX8 medium-duty commercial vehicles, manufactured in full-cycle production mode with welding and painting of bodies and cabins, have rolled off Avtotor conveyors at different production sites almost simultaneously with the 2.5 millionth BMW X7, at time intervals of several minutes.

Avtotor currently produces 530 automobiles on a daily basis. On average, taking into account the outputs of different departments, one automobile rolls off the conveyor of the enterprise every three minutes. Avtotor is one of the largest contract car manufacturers in the world. Currently, over 45 different automobile models are being manufactured at the factory simultaneously. More than 30 new models and versions are launched every year and five welding lines operate for working on bodies and cabins. The capacity of the paint shop has been augmented to 60,000 bodies per year, following the modernisation process. Avtotor manufactured 1,679 automobiles during its debut year in 1997.

The 2.5 millionth automobile has rolled off the conveyor on 13 December 2021, as annouced by Avtotor press office.
