At present the automobile component supplier and contract manufacturer is already building the 5er Limousine for premium BMW models. Every second engine of the Bavarian luxury brand comes from the Austrian production plant in Steyr. Now the new Roadster Z4 is also being assembled by Magna in Graz. BMW considers this to be a further commitment to Austria as a business location on the part of the BMW Group. Production will commence before the end of 2018.
Magna has already been collaborating with BMW since the year 2001. The first BMW X3 produced by Magna in Graz left the assembly lines in 2003, followed other types of vehicles. Part of the production volume of the BMW 5er series with combustion engines as well as a hybrid version have been manufactured in Graz since 2017.
