BMW celebrates five millionth vehicle assembled in the US

It’s an X5 M Competition that will become part of the BMW historic collection.

BMW’s Spartanburg factory has been up and running for more than a quarter of a century as series production of the 3 Series kicked off in the spring of 1995. The Z3 roadster hit the assembly line by the end of that year and the X5 joined in 1999. Three years later, the Z3 was replaced by the Z4, with the X6 arriving in 2007. The last car was assembled in August 2008, thus starting the “X” era at the plant. X3 entered production in 2010, followed by its swoopy X4 cousin in 2014 and the flagship X7 in 2018.

Fast forward to 2020, BMW USA is proud to announce the five millionth vehicle has been put together at the Spartanburg factory on June 4. It’s an X5 M Competition finished in Toronto Red Metallic riding on two-tone 21/22-inch and with a Silverstone Full Merino Leather interior. It’s not on its way to a customer because the high-performance SUV will remain at the factory to serve as a member of the company’s historic collection.
