Generations of the 3 Series.
When BMW Group Plant San Luis Potosi starts production in 2019, we will have the privilege of hosting the manufacturing of one of the most successful BMW models ever, an iconic automobile that essentially defined the Sport Sedan as a segment in the automotive market.
First unveiled at the 1975 International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt, the BMW 3 Series has developed into both the brand’s most successful model range and an international bestseller. And that makes the 3 Series a highly effective global ambassador for BMW’s core attributes.
