BMW has announced that they will be announcing a significant and expanded commitment in the USA during a press conference to be held on Friday, March 28th at 1:00 PM EST. Numerous big names will be in attendance including:
  • BMW Group Chairman Dr. Norbert Reithofer
  • U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker
  • South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley
  • BMW Group Board Member Harald Krueger - head of the global production network

It's long been rumored at the plant that they'll be getting the 3 series. Most people don't remember they made the 318 there before the Z3. My guess is the announcement will make it official. Unfortunately, this will probably mean no more ED's for 3 series.

After thinking a bit more and seeing there are going to be political types there I think this may have something to do with appeasing some of the BS government "green" initiatives that have emerged recently. Maybe they could earn some credits by building i3/i8 here?

Maybe. I was at the plant a couple of weeks ago and there were 2 i3's in the parking lot. I don't know if they were employee cars or company cars. There were several unused charging stations.
