“BMW already employs more than a thousand people in Debrecen, ”Mayor of Debrecen László Papp wrote in his Saturday Facebook post, to which he also attached photos of the construction, which is proceeding according to plan even in the winter months. Recently, the employees of the BMW Group Plant Debrecen were also able to move into the Communication Center.

“Without the BMW plant, without even starting production, the Debrecen economy would be a fraction of the size of the current one. Without BMW’s stimulus investment, many of the developments and welfare measures that this city has been waiting for for years or decades would have been missed,” the mayor added.

Johannes Trauth, the vice president of the BMW Group Plant Debrecen told Index in January that more than 3,000 people were already working on the construction of the factory, a new service centre would be handed over after the training centre, and within a year the first car would roll off the production line in Debrecen. Johannes Trauth indicated that 50-100 new employees are added to the workforce in Debrecen every month. The focus has now shifted to production positions. The final number of employees is expected to be 1,500.

In Debrecen, the BMW Group is building a full-fledged car factory with a press plant, a bodywork building department, a painting workshop and an assembly hall, as well as a unique battery assembly plant that enables the in-house assembly of the battery cells required for electric drive. The plant, located in the north-west of Debrecen on an area of more than 400 hectares, is the first unit of the group to be developed entirely along the iFACTORY concept from the very first planning phase, with the aim of efficient, environmentally friendly and digitalised production.

The BMW Group Plant Debrecen is scheduled to start production in 2025, with more than 1,500 employees, and the first model of the all-electric Neue Klasse to debut in Debrecen will roll off the production line.

The first test production will take place as early as September 2024.
