Porsche has launched a new expansion project at its Leipzig plant in Germany, the carmaker said in a press release on 12 March. The company is investing EUR600 million in the fifth expansion at the plant, which also includes a new body shop plant. Porsche laid the foundation stone of the 75,500-square meter plant this week. The new plant will produce vehicle bodies for the next generation of its Macan SUV— which Porsche has decided to be fully electric— from the beginning of the next decade.
