For the seventh time in a row, BMW is the largest car exporter from the United States. It’s neither Ford, nor General Motors, nor Jeep. It seems weird, but it makes sense. It is about the value of exported vehicles. How it transmits HAK magazine, 218,820 vehicles worth 8.9 billion US dollars were exported last year.
BMW reached a record high last year, when 246,014 exported vehicles were valued at $ 9.6 billion. The corona crisis took its toll in the first half of 2020, but the other six months were a record.
The factory in Spartanburg (South Carolina) produces XV, X5, X6 and X7 SUVs that sell well, and their price is far from Alanford’s – real little things. In the first half of the year, the factory was temporarily stopped due to a pandemic. Production stalled for five weeks from April onwards before slowly resuming under stricter hygiene rules. After that, production really accelerated: in the second half of the year, almost 218,000 vehicles were produced, which is more than 60 percent of the total annual production of 361,365 vehicles. Never before have so many been produced in half a year
“BMW is proud to contribute to the US trade balance,” said factory director Knudt Flor. Deliveries were recorded in more than 125 countries in 2020. The most important target country was China with 23.2 percent. It is followed by Germany with 12.9 percent.
Most of the vehicles left the United States by ship: 189,000 vehicles were delivered through the port of Charleston alone. 13,000 vehicles left the United States by train, mostly to Canada, where six percent of exports went.
