BMW 2 Series Convertible Enters Production in Leipzig Today

The BMW 2 Series Convertible was unveiled a while ago. However, despite seeing it in the flesh at Paris, the car wasn’t actually in production until today. November 3rd marks the day the new drop-top eventually started production, at the BMW Plant in Leipzig.

The new model is replacing the 1 Series Convertible that was also built in this same plant between 2007 and 2013. During that time, over 130,000 units were sold on a worldwide level, with the 1 Series Convertible being the most popular model in its segment.

Through the new 2 Series Convertible, 2 Series Coupe, 2 Series Active Tourer, BMW X1 and 1 Series, the Leipzig plant is now responsible for manufacturing 5 different models on a very flexible production line. If you count the i models that are also built in the same town, you get a grand total of 7 different models. However, the i3 and i8 have a different, more eco-friendly production line.

What’s less known is that today also marks a premiere. It will be the first time an M Performance Automobile Convertible model is built, the M235i. After SUVs, Coupes and sedans, it’s time for a drop-top to join the range. It will also probably be the best choice of the range as well.

Of course, all 2 Series Convertible models come with the latest engines (EU6 compliant) and the first navigation system in the world that can perform automatic updates online.
