The Avtotor company in Kaliningrad began manufacturing of the second-generation BMW X1 crossover SUV destined for the Russian market. Earlier the enterprise assembled the first generation of the model.
Only one version of the crossover is made in Kaliningrad now – the 4-wheel drive BMW X1 xDrive18d with a 2.0-liter (150 hp) diesel engine, but in future the range of the produced variants will be broadened. SKD assembly is applied for the new X1 like for the other BMW models at the Avtotor factory.
