Ultimate Factories: See How the BMW X3 is Built

BMW X3

In 2007, the National Geographic Channel (NGC) showed us how the Z4 sports car was built, and now the Ultimate Factories team is back at BMW ’s South Carolina Plant once again to show us how the X3 is made. The teams spent almost two weeks at the BMW factory in early June producing and filming the new program. The show will be aired on Tuesday, November 1, 2011 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on National Geographic Channel.

"Once again, BMW was very pleased to welcome the National Geographic Channel into our plant. We are proud to show people all over the world the quality and craftsmanship of BMW X3, X5 and X6, built exclusively for over 130 markets around the globe," said Josef Kerscher, President, BMW Manufacturing.

The BMW X3 has been built at the South Carolina plant since September 2010 and went on sale in the U.S. in early 2011.
