BMW Builds Battery Assembly Plant in Thailand

BMW Group has begun construction of its own production facility for high-voltage batteries in Rayong, Thailand. In addition to vehicle production, the plant has been manufacturing battery systems for plug-in hybrids since 2019. In 2025, the plant is scheduled to begin production of all-electric vehicles.

Investment of more than 40 million euros

The assembly line for high-voltage batteries will cover an area of 4,000 square meters. Here, imported battery cells will be assembled into modules, which will then be built into high-voltage battery packs. These are said to be fifth-generation batteries, not the packs of prismatic cells known as “sixth-generation” batteries for use in BMW’s so-called new-class vehicles. According to BMW, the company is investing more than 40 million euros in the project, 35 million of which will go toward the purchase of state-of-the-art equipment and systems.
