Post BMW China news

BEIJING (AFX) - Bayerische Motoren Werke AG (BMW) said it has raised prices of its cars in China due to a new vehicle consumption tax in the country, effective from April 1.
Prices of more than 20 BMW models have been raised by between 4,800-289,600 yuan, according to XFN-Asia's calculations.
The company did not provide a percentage figure for the price hikes.
BMW sold 23,595 cars in the mainland last year, 15,300 of which were produced in China by BMW Brilliance Automotive, its joint venture with Brilliance China Automotive Holdings Ltd.
China's Ministry of Finance announced last month that it was lowering consumption tax on cars with smaller engines while increasing rates on bigger vehicles.
According to the new tax rules, as of April 1, the consumption tax on 1.0-1.5 liter vehicles will be lowered to three pct from five pct.
Vehicles with engines of 2.0 to 2.5 liters will be subject to a nine pct sales tax, those between 2.5 and 3.0 liters will see the figure rise to 12 pct, while 3.0 to 4.0 liter engines will be charged 15 pct and those over 4.0 liters as much as 20 pct

I think they are for China only but I'm not 100% sure

BMW plans to open second plant in China

Beijing Times reports Wednesday that BMW Group is secretly planning to open the second plant with Shenyang-based Brilliance Automotive Corp, while Shanghai General Motors Co Ltd suspended its Cadillac project and rumors are swirling about the halt of Beijing's Mercedes-Benz project due to China's imported policy of auto parts.

The president of BMW Group came to China secretly and reached an agreement on an increase of investment and production, according to Brilliance Automotive Corp.

Shanghai General Motors Co Ltd, General Motors' only car venture in China, announced it would halt the Completely Knocked Down (CKD)assembly of Cadillac, and turn to import. And Beijing Benz-DaimlerChrysler was busy clarifying it would not stop the production in Beijing.

BMW Group's launch of expansion scheme in China is undoubtedly a heavy blow to European and US auto makers, especially to high-end luxury auto makers.

If the Shenyang plant, built three years ago, could reach the full capacity of 30,000 units annually, BMW Group would expand its investment in China to build another plant, according to BMW Group's plan at the beginning of this year.

Besides the expansion of production capacity, BMW will accelerate localization of auto parts. It will increase the value of auto parts it purchases in China from 870 million yuan last year to 3 billion yuan this year and increase the local supplier from over 40 to more than 80 this year, said Eberhard Schrempf, CEO of BMW Brilliance Automotive Ltd.

BMW Expanding Its Presence - and Purchases - in China

Quote:
BMW has announced that it will boost component purchases in China this year, in part to offset soaring costs of raw materials. The German automaker also plans to expand its Chinese dealer network and expand its product portfolio here.

BMW, which is partnered in China with Brilliance Automotive, said it plans to increase spending on parts from 150 Chinese suppliers to $625 million in 2008, compared with $500 million last year.

The company also is expanding its retail network in China from 90 to 120 dealers by year's end. Next month, BMW will begin importing the 1 Series as part of a long-range plan to broaden its product mix.

BMW still trails Audi in China's rapidly growing luxury-car segment. Last year, Audi sales in China climbed 25 percent, to 100,888 units, while BMW sales jumped 42 percent, to 51,588 units.
