BMW To Export Chinese Built 5-Series Sedans, Engine Plant Also Being Opened

BMWs in certain markets may be getting a "Made In China" code in their VIN numbers starting at the end of 2011, as the company plans to export Chinese made 5-Series sedans to certain markets.

The Truth About Cars quotes the CEO of BMW's Chinese operations as stating "We will find some markets, maybe in the Middle East, somewhere in Asia, or some other markets that welcome the products where we can test this export effort. The main market of course is here (in China), because we can't even supply enough here."

The 5-Series is built in China as part of a joint venture with Brilliance. TTAC's China expert Bertel Schmitt claims that the quality of cars built in Chinese/foreign joint ventures is no worse than vehicles built in Japan, America or any other country (and sometimes better). The 5-Series is a popular vehicle in China, with a long-wheelbase version regarded as a status symbol for wealthy Chinese who can afford a driver.
