BMW has announced that pre-production versions of the 2019 BMW X7 crossover have started rolling off the production line at BMW’s Spartanburg plant in South Carolina. Now that the pre-production models are being produced, BMW will now complete the final testing for the 2019 X7 before it officially arrives at the end of 2018.
“We are proud to produce the BMW X7 here in Spartanburg, the home of our X models. This is a very special vehicle and our employees are looking forward to yet a further member of the X family,” stated Knudt Flor, head of the BMW Group Spartanburg plant. “Together with the BMW X7, a total of five BMW X models will be exported from Spartanburg to all four corners of the globe.”
The 2019 X7 flagship SUV will be built on the same production lines as the BMW X5 and BMW X6. From these teaser photos its easy to see that the 2019 X7 will look pretty close to the BMW X7 iPerformance concept that we saw a few months ago – even that interesting grille is going to make it to production.
