World’s First Car Plant Operating Solely from Renewable Energy Soon Running in Hungary
The world’s first car plant to operate solely from renewable energy will soon be up and running in Debrecen. BMW’s new plant will “completely abandon fossil fuels”, the company’s chief executive, Oliver Zipse, told the BMW Annual General Meeting in Munich on Wednesday.

Construction will start on June 1 and electric BMW cars will roll off the production line 26 months later, he said.

Electricity for manufacturing will be generated on site for the most part, while “100% renewable energy sources” will provide the rest, he added.
