“Beautiful messages” announced Christoph Schröder (54) in the first PNP interview as plant manager at the BMW location in Dingolfing, among other things, that the plant will get more models.
– BMW is building fewer cars again in Dingolfing
You speak of “beautiful messages”, what are they?
Christoph Schröder: That we are launching the 4 Series Coupé in Dingolfing this year, which we are happy about – a great car. On the other hand, we will also get an electrified vehicle.
Schröder: I can’t say that now. It can be said that we are very good at ramping up e-mobility. We will hire 800, maybe even more, employees this year.
Is only the 4 Series Coupé or the Cabrio coming? And are these models electrified?
Schröder: The coupe will be launched this year; the 4-series convertible will follow, we are not yet saying when. The fully electric i4 is built in Munich. Next year, the i-Next will be the first fully electrified model from Dingolfing.
