BMW iX and BMW i4 production powered by hydroelectricity from Rivers Isar and Lech

The BMW Group already powers its production facilities worldwide entirely with green electricity today. The green electricity needed for BMW iX production will come from the Isar hydroelectric power stations Uppenborn between Moosburg and Landshut while production of the BMW i4 will be powered by the Lech hydroelectric power stations in Gersthofen and Rain. The energy they supply is also used to manufacture a wide range of components for the two electric models, at BMW Group Plants Landshut, Dingolfing and Berlin.
