Seeking Growth, EU Auto Manufacturers are Turning to…Mexico?


One of the biggest recent developments in auto industry site selection took place in the summer of 2014 when BMW announced plans to build a $1 billion manufacturing facility in San Luis Potosi, Mexico. When the plant comes online in 2019, it is expected to churn out some 150,000 units per year.
