BMW moves some engine production out of UK due to Brexit

The German automaker’s Hams Hall engine plant in West Midlands is no longer producing engines for the X3 SUVs assembled at its Rosslyn assembly plant in South Africa

BMW has moved some engine production from the United Kingdom amid continuing uncertainty over the country’s planned exit from the European Union (EU), also known as ‘Brexit’, Reuters reported on 9 July, citing the automaker’s production chief Oliver Zipse. BMW’s production chief informed that its Hams Hall engine plant in West Midlands is no longer producing engines for the X3 SUVs assembled at its Rosslyn assembly plant in South Africa. The company’s South African plant, which manufactures the X3 SUVs for export into the EU markets, is now sourcing engines from BMW’s engine plant in Germany to continue complying with trade rules and avoid high tariff.
