In Debrecen, the next generation round battery cells will be assembled into a battery housing - a metal frame, which is later integrated into the underbody of the car.
The official start of production for the sixth generation high voltage batteries will be in 2025 - in parallel with the start of vehicle production.

The new production facility will extend over an area of about 140,000m2, with construction work having recently begun.

With the next generation of batteries for the Neue Klasse, range will improve by up to 30%, and the charging speed will be up to 30% faster.

The BMW Group is also focused on keeping the carbon footprint and consumption of resources for production as low as possible, starting in the supply chain.

Cell manufacturers will use cobalt, lithium and nickel that include a percentage of secondary material such as raw materials that are not newly mined, but already in the loop, in the production of battery cells.

Combined with the commitment to use only green power from renewable energies for production of battery cells, the BMW Group will reduce the carbon footprint of battery cell production by up to 60%.
