Plant Leipzig donates BMW i3 to Dresden Transport Museum.

BMW Group Plant Leipzig has donated a BMW i3 to the Dresden Transport Museum for its permanent exhibition.

The BMW i3 was presented to Transport Museum Director Joachim Breuninger by Hans-Peter Kemser, director of BMW Group Plant Leipzig. "We are delighted that the BMW i3 made in Leipzig has enabled us to write one of the most innovative chapters of mobility history in Saxony. When the vehicle is on show at the Transport Museum Dresden, it will bring this chapter to life for visitors to experience," said Kemser. The electric vehicle will be the final exhibit in the museum’s timeline display and point to the future of sustainable mobility.

The BMW i3 is the third vehicle by the Bavarian Motor Works AG to find a place in the Transport Museum. Special exhibits already include a BMW 340, made in 1951, and a 1932 BMW AM 1 – an automotive rarity that is still in its original condition. Both vehicles were manufactured at the plant in Eisenach.

With an exhibition space of 5000 m², the Dresden Transport Museum presents exhibitions on rail, road, water and air transport. "The BMW i3 brings contemporary and future topics such as energy efficiency and alternative drivetrains to our exhibition," says Museum Director Breuninger.
