Within the context of the electrification of its vehicle fleet, the German automobile manufacturer will produce all its diesel and petrol engines at these two sites by 2024 at the latest. According to BMW, combustion engines will continue to play a dominant role in the BMW Group for a long time. BMW already invested € 102 million in Steyr to set up a new assembly line for petrol engines with an annual output of 180,000 to 360,000 units. The assembly line has been operating on one shift since the end of September. At the same time, the company invested € 25 million in Steyr to set up the production of e-drive housings.

The world's largest engine plant within the BMW Group manufactures three, four and six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines which are integrated into the BMW and MINI cars manufactured at the company's international vehicle production plants. At the same time, the BMW Group Plant Steyr serves as the Group-wide competence centre for the development of all BMW and MINI diesel engines. On average, an engine leaves the assembly lines every thirteen seconds. This amounted to about 530,000 diesel and 700,000 petrol engines in the year 2019, of which about one-third were already engines for hybrid drives. At peak times, the factory in Steyr produces up to 6,000 engines per day.
