BMW celebrates a milestone of success after producing 10 million 3-Series saloon cars, 40 years after its initial launch.

The ten millionth 3-Series saloon rolled off the production line at BMW’s Munich plant, with the car in question being painted Imperial Blue. 

The celebration was marked at the plant in Munich – the only factory to have produced all six incarnations of the popular saloon. Out of a production capacity of 1,000, almost half of them are 3-Series. 

As well as the Munich plant, the 3-Series is built in Regensburg, Germany, Rosslyn in South Africa and Tiexi in China.

Hermann Bohrer, plant director at the BMW group facility in Munich told Carscoops: “The success story of the BMW 3-Series started here in Plant Munich and is now reaching a very special highpoint here as well.

‘The that this landmark vehicle was produced at our plant is a particular honour for us and makes me very proud indeed of my team.” 

The latest version of the 3-Series began production in July of this year, with more versions of the popular car in the pipework. A plug-in hybrid version, called the 330e, was recently revealed at the Frankfurt Motor show.
